Arrest Week: The Moral of the Story Is …

Reminder: All arrestees are innocent until proven guilty.

Show up! For cryin’ out loud, don’t skip your court date.

Here’s what it looked like before from above:

Hey Vinny – All Day?

Our second funny moment in Regency Court tonight. We were walking by and noticed that Vinny’s All Day Cafe doesn’t live up to its name.

Shouldn’t the “All Day Cafe” be open all day?

Reminds us of Vinny Barbarino:

Just having fun. We’ve been to Vinny’s Cafe and loved it.
