Uptown Gone

Nothing says, "Goodbye forever" like black duct tape over the name of your business.

Uptown Dog on Falls Road had been "closed for renovations" for some time. It is now closed for good. The woman putting up the duct tape on Saturday said that with the economy, the owner just couldn't make a go of the upscale dog accessories shop.

For those of you who couldn't drive or walk through the Falls & 36th intersection without singing "Uptown Dog'' to the tune of "Uptown Girl," Hawker will begin to search for a song that can have its lyrics easily replaced with "Bella Roma." I'll keep you all posted.

Good riddance. Sorry if that's a bit harsh, but the store was pretty sad.

When the moon hits your eye
Like a big pizza pie
That's Bella Roma!

This one is easy! You sing Bella Roma to the music to My Sharona.
