Well, the new Napoli, in the ground floor of the Gateway Plaza, right next to their old shoebox of a building, looks great! It's clean and modern and shiny and bright. Unfortunately, they need to get a new liquor license to be able to serve beer and wine at their new location! Never mind that it's the same business, with the same owners, only a few yards away. It's a new address, so they need a new liquor license.
We thought about that for a little while, and contemplated staying. Both of us wanted beer, though, so we headed up to Wings Over Ithaca. 25 "cruisin' altitude" wings and a pair of Guinness Draft bottles later... we're both much happier.
As we left Napoli, one of the staffers outside for a smoke saw us leaving just after we'd arrived, and asked, "What happened? No beer?" I guess we're not the only ones who've seen no point in staying when they can't serve beer. I hope that gets resolved quickly.
-4 as I drove back across town. NOAA warns that we could have record-breaking lows tonight... as low as 20 below. Whee!
