Pic's Corner Bar showing signs of life...or at least signs

Back in the early '90s, when the troubled Pic's Corner Bar finally gave up the ghost, it was the worst neighbor in a not very good neighborhood.

But that was then. Now, the empty Pic's building stands in the middle of a stretch of West 32nd Avenue that's one of the hottest dining areas in town -- two blocks away from LoHi SteakBar, at 3200 Tejon Street, across the street from the new Highland Tap & Burger, at 2223 West 32nd, and just down the street from Duo, at 2413 West 32nd.

So Pic's occupies a prime piece of real estate in hot, hot Highland -- one that even includes parking.

But don't get too excited about the sign that's been posted on the graffiti-tagged building -- not yet. That's not an application for a new alcohol license, or a demolition permit. It's simply a notice that the owners want a permit to construct a new fence. Still, it's a sign of life on this long-neglected corner.
