They better make sure their bike racks are up to code.

:) Thanks for the concern.

Although there is definitely a shortage of racks on this part of Monroe St, the city has installed more recently. Of course, this area is exempt from providing both car spaces and bike spaces as outlined in the Zoning Code, because there's no space to build either on private property, and the use of the buildings basically haven't changed since 1988, when the bike parking requirement was written.

Actually, the eastern end of Monroe has significantly better bike parking options than the area near the current Pasqual's. The racks around the Laurel, Michaels, Pasqual's, etc. were basically non-existent or unusable, and most people ended up using street signs to park their bikes.

Oh, wow, been gone for a long time. We could really use a good donner kebab place instead of this plague of mexican places.

They call themselves "southwestern" but their green and red chile sauces peg them as being New Mexico influenced. However, their food isn't nearly spicy enough to be authentic New Mexican. ;)

Yes, sorry - meant to say that they do seem to have a more specific influence than just "southwestern." I think they used to call themselves New Mexican, too.

Should've had coffee before writing. :roll:

:D Hey that's great news about Pasqual's move since it puts me and my work pals that much closer. In good weather we can all walk there! Cool. I hope the place will be similar to the former Monroe digs. Love their double stuff taco and the commuter burrito. Fish taco's are good too. Being closer to Camp Randall and campus may increase their business.

Also the former site of Mount Everest, the first Indian restaurant in town and a pet store.

So, wait - it was an Indian restaurant and a pet store?

Makes you wonder what was in the Vindaloo.

Ha ha, no. Before it was the Indian restaurant (and I think something was in there in between the two businesses...) it was Fur Fin and Feather, the only pet store in the city known to cause traffic accidents.

Much as I wish I could say that Blaska ran into the street screaming "Snakes! Snakes!" (girly-man that he is) and caused a 34-car pileup, nothing that exciting happened. The store's sign was perpendicular to the street, and had space on it for messages. The owner had a sense of humor, and liked to put jokes (especially animal-based puns) on the sign, rather than advertising 30% off hamster fluff or whatever. One day he got the bright idea to put the words "SEE OTHER SIDE" on both sides of the sign. He had to take it down and apologize in the Cap Times after a couple of fenderbenders caused by people driving under the sign, then looking back to see what was on the other side.
