This week I got to pick the Happy Hour spot for our happy little group. I always walk by Alessandro's, look at the menu posted beside the door, and think about stopping in to try it, but until this week I never actually made that happen.
The Alessandro's building holds a lot of good memories for me, but from a very different era. My father used to work for Commercial Business Supply when it was located in the same building and he would often take us with him when he went in on weekends to finish up work. While he worked, my sisters and I would play in an upstairs storeroom which housed all kinds of extra office furniture. It was a quiet, creepy, old building in those days with none of the warmth of the current Alessandro's Restaurant.
