News From The Square

Memorial Day in McKinney really happens down in the Pecan Grove Cemetery (and I do have a post about that later) but Rosy’s Bazaar caught my eye as I was driving down to the Memorial Day program so I had to stop by the square and see what was up.

I couldn’t figure out what had happened and I didn’t go in because all the signs are in spanish and I didn’t know if they would be able to speak english. It looks like something damaged their door and window but that wouldn’t really explain the barricades.  If anyone knows, I’d love to hear about what happened.   

Next door to Rosy’s is La Rapida Stickers and then there is another building, well, really a covered patio, that I’ve never paid much attention to before.  This time, however, I noticed a sign up for a proposed zoning change.

Now I’m really curious.  This is actually a good spot near the square, just a half a block or so from Loco Cowpoke and Mom & POPCorn Candy Company.  Foot traffic tends to stop by Doug & Lynda’s Ski Shop but I think a little place to sit in the shade, playing decent music, would go a long way towards enticing people to walk a little farther down.  This most definitely has promise.  Doesn’t it look cozy?

I mentioned the weekend of Art Walk that Lone Star Cellars had a new awning up but completely forgot to mention that Imaging On The Square has also been working on their’s.  It looks awesome.  It no longer says “CJ Riley”.

I’ve been noticing a sign for Ski Daddy in the storefront next to Imaging on the Square for a few weeks now.  I wasn’t sure if this was a new business going in but I stopped and took a picture this time.  I found a web site for it, I think, but I get an error every time I try to access it.  (www.skidaddy.com)

The square was very quiet today.  There were a few stores open and a few shoppers about but I actually heard one of the shoppers ask their companion “Where is everyone?”  It was a little eerie.   

I stopped in at RejuveNation Life Spa after peeking in their window and seeing that they are stocking some cute things inside.  They have some great smelling candles in milk bottles and some adorable hand-made aprons crafted by Jill Luigs.  It’s definitely worth a browse if you are by.  They said that they started stocking artistic crafts just after the last Second Saturday.   

So that’s the news from the square at the moment.  If anyone has any details on what happened to Rosy’s or what the proposed zoning change is all about, please let me know!

    The proposed zoning sign caught my eye too. Inside the building it looks like a restaurant/bar in the works. There is a sign for a liquor license and on the opposit side of the building (you can view is you are traveling north on McDonald) it says, “Hawgs and Dawgs”.

      Hmmm…. a biker bar? Well, my brother-in-law is a harley enthusiast and he is a super cool guy. In fact, the few bikers I have met have actually been really upstanding people. Someone pointed out that you can’t be a rascal and afford a Harley. So far, it looks really cute and inviting. I have a friend who knows someone who said that they had bought a dry cleaners on the square and were turning in into a bar. I thought she might have misheard because I didn’t know of a dry cleaners on the square but I don’t know what that building used to be. I’ll check with her and see what I can find out! Thanks for the info!
