A few nights ago I noticed that there was a big fire off of Church Avenue in Kensington but I didn't stop to look. I guess I've been a little self absorbed lately. But this morning I noticed that Jobby Wine and Liquor had burned down. At first I noticed the door was open and bottles of whiskey and vodka were laying around and I thought "cool, free alcohol" but alas, there were fire inspectors checking out the place.
I didn't shop here too much, but I always called this place "The alcoholic's liquor store" because it seemed that only alcoholics shopped there. Walking into the place was like stepping into an episode of Hoarders. There were cardboard boxes everywhere, and stacks and stacks of liquor. It has been here for decades. I heard that someone was shot and killed their during a robbery which is why there was the bullet proof glass.
