What's the deal with the vacant lot. [Jul. 17th, 2008|04:35 pm]
So, I found out yesterday (from a cab driver) that the vacant lot beside my house originally was an ice cream parlour. Eventually, that was sold and turned into a boarding house, which quickly became a crackhouse. Well, somebody got ripped off (or thought they were ripped off) and decided to board up the building and arson the place with the dealer inside. The dealer escaped, the arsonist got arrested, and the house got torn down. And is now a vacant lot.
Also, the previous tenant here, he used to run like an unlicensed patio out here, selling beer to people. That explains why those guys were coming round asking for drinks and the bottle opener by the front door. lol

That makes me think - everything has a story, even a vacant lot. :D

Random guys have come to your place and asked you for booze?

That would've totally sketched me out.

They were foreigners and used the word "drinks" so I thought they meant coffee.
