FYI: Rain makes the alley behind the Alibi offices even more putrid
If the way the alley smells right now were made into a scented candle, it would be called Half-Cremated Horse. Or maybe State Fair Holocaust.
Huge, stinky piles of garbage in alleys today
Walking to work today, I noticed a pile of trash outside of its dumpster. Then another, and another. Most of the errant piles o’ crap were in the alley that runs East/West between Central and Gold. But the mother load, the oops-
The smell is like, well, like a waist-high pile of garbage that’s out of its plastic bags and lying in the June sun.
What is going on here?! Who did this? HOW? And, who is going to clean it up?
We now have an answer to at least one of these pressing questions. Two intrepid workers from the city are shoveling up the mess right now. Thanks to these two nameless heroes who apparently drew the short straws in today’s messy event.
What about this other sign?
The back side of the Kimo has cool things too.
The new KiMo sign is really cool. It makes me happy. But with all this hullaballoo about it, I started thinking about another sign. A sign no one sees unless they hang out in the alley.
(Reasons for hanging out in the alley include, but are not limited to, smoking, peeing and fighting. At least, these are the things I have witnessed there.)
On the back side of the KiMo, which is also the back side of the Alibi offices, is an old metal sign that's completely out of place.
It's set in the wall near our door, and it reads "Ferguson and Lind PC, Attorneys."
Do not be fooled. We do not have any attorneys in our back room. What is the sign doing there? Why is it in the alley? Were there once lots of little businesses back there, including some lawyers who had a small office with no street entrance? The sign also reads "411 Kimo Way."
What is this Kimo Way? Is someone referring to the alley as Kimo Way?! That's a bit euphemistic. And awesome. I think from now on we should all call the stinky alley Kimo Way.
When you come down to check out the new KiMo sign, take a little detour down Kimo Way and check out the forgotten mystery sign too.
