The 16th Street Mall is in the news these days. The same day that Patricia Calhoun's list of ten reasons to love the 16th Street Mall went live, two tourists from California dining at the Rock Bottom Brewery wound up beaten up by a crowd of still unidentified miscreants. But the mall definitely has its fans, especially during the daytime hours. Says Judith:
I walk the mall every day at lunchtime, and never have a problem. Of course, I hold tight to my purse — except when I'm in Walgreens, when I need to get my wallet. That sushi bar is the best deal in town!
Have you tried the sushi at the revamped Walgreens on the 16th Street Mall? Or do you find the rest of the mall too raw in general?
