this is some very sad news

i'm old enough to remember when the central was a REAL theater. i remember how the center USED to be. i want it back like that now. i hate most of what it has become.

i loved the bookworm though. since i no longer GO to the center (no real need, my yarn store sit-n-knit moved to bloomfield. my florist lane and lenge has moved to park road). so NO need.
most of the restaurants are ok. i DO think a couple of them are excellent. it's NOT worth it to me to have to deal with the suv driving, walking the designer dog, see and be seen crowd.

don't EVEN get me started on black and blue square.....
(here's a test for you. go to the whole foods near black and blue and then drive the one or two miles to the whole foods in bishops corner. TELL me you don't notice a difference* and i'll tell you you're either lying or high on crack.)

i WILL miss the bookworm

Bookworm to Close

Bookworm, the independent bookstore that has been a fixture in town since 1973 will close by the end of the month and leave its Farmington Avenue store, founder and owner Sarah Bedell said Monday.

Bedell, 67, said concerns about her health, and not the faltering economy, prompted her recently to decide to retire after nearly 37 years in the business she said she still loves...............

*the difference being the people are NICER in bishops corner. they're more aware of their surroundings in bishops corner and NOT simply SELF aware as they are in the center.
