The Waterworks Giveth and The Waterworks Taketh Away
Allium and I returned to Philadelphia last Friday, and were astonished and pleased to see that the Waterworks Restaurant, on the banks of the Schuylkill, had unexpectedly enhanced the view of the building and grounds by installing boxed evergreens where formerly all we could see were trash and pallets. Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah!
However, as noted above, the improved view has not come without cost. Some bright bulb at the restaurant has seen fit to add a rolling bar to the newly beautified scene. It’s hideous — bright white and electric blue. It’s exactly what was needed to completely destroy the otherwise tasteful serenity of the riverside. Nice work, guys — what’s next? An inflatable pink elephant over the bar?
Say it ain’t so.
