No Big Lots skewer for Sketch

Sketch has a limited menu, but as Jason Sheehan noted in his review, what Jesse Morreale and Sean Yontz (the subject of this week's Chef and Tell) are serving there is choice. Still, when the place opened in March, we couldn't resist suggesting that -- in addition to the exotic cheeses, meats, nuts and Amarena cherries and El Rey Chocolate -- Sketch offer a skewer of the day, featuring random food items on sale at the Big Lots right across First Avenue.

Sadly, the Big Lots Skewer suggestion is now off the table, because the Big Lots closed abruptly. Rumor has it that a Sunflower Market may go into the space -- which would greatly expand the possibilities for a daily skewer, but make it considerably less sketchy.
