Corner of Airline and Mockingbird Being Cleared

So long, Flower Mart.

The 7-Eleven and Fleetwood’s Kit Kat have been closed for some time now, and Dallas Flower Mart has been shuttered even longer, but the buildings they once occupied are being demolished today. Pardon me while I shed a tear in memory of all the Slurpees I bought on that corner.

    I still pine for the smell of bread.

    You csn still contact Debby Moore Baker, Park Cities mom and talented floral designer, formerly of the Dallas Flower Mart to do the flowers for your holiday soiree or wedding, she’s now at McShan Florist. She can still hook you up with a wreath or a poinsetta as well, or send one to your Auntie in Palm Springs. http://www.mcshanflorist.com

    The REAL reason behind the 7-11 being demolished is that President Turner did not want SMU students to be able to buy alchohol near campus. If this proposition passes, it’s only a matter of time before the other 7-11 and Tom Thumb are purchased and demolished by SMU.

    Yes, the demolition of the 7-11 will keep all of SMU sober now. PHEW, that’s such a relief. Thank goodness those kids aren’t smart enough to find any of the 40 or so other places to buy booze within a 1 mile radius of the campus.

    That cracked me up kmom! Thanks. My first thought went to Parkit Market.

    I saw huge crowds heading into Sushi Kyoto tonight. Just imagine how crazy it will get if they’re allowed to start serving alcohol. Ooops, never mind, they already do.

    At night and weekends, it would be easier to find an SMU student at the Parkit Market or 7-11 across the street than anywhere near campus. The real entertainment at the Rusty “Concrete” Taco is watching the beer trucks unloading kegs.
