    We're slowly getting the upstairs residential concept to take hold here, but not enough yet for the CBD to be vibrant in the evenings anywhere but right in front of the (few) restaurants and night spots. There's no grocery, or anything that even imitates a grocery, within walking distance of the middle of the city, so everybody who lives there has to drive, ride their bicycle, or take the transit bus - it was just a joke. Really! - to purchase groceries. The sidewalk situation is improving. I've never been to a Trader Joe's, and the closest one is about a 4-hour drive from home. We do have an Earth Fare, which has graced our town for the last couple of years, though. Chiggers can't be boozers, so that's where I prefer to shop. Sounds depressing, and it sometimes is. Such is life.
