The sign we've been waiting for. Things are changing down here, especially on Main.
Bars are now open; new places have popped up for you to explore and enjoy. Street patios are a thing.
But some things are the same – the train still honks its horn every 12 minutes; street parking is still free after 6. Your favorite haunt is still waiting to see your face after so many months.
What are you waiting for?
