Earlier this year, a block away from our apartment, a new little strip mall was built with a Starbucks Coffee and Washington Mutual bank. An eerie pair of Washington things.
Just the other day, we took a slightly different route to the Costco and noticed a building that looked very familiar, with a very familiar sign. Sure enough, it appears that Seattle-based Mexican food chain Azteca is just about to open a location near us. So now they have 28 locations in Washington, 2 in Oregon, and a mysterious 2 in Florida (the other is in a city called Davie; I don’t know where that is). They have “Now Hiring” signs out right now, so hopefully they’ll be open for business soon. I don’t understand, but I certainly will enjoy.
