no fortune

After an afternoon of painting trim, I headed over to the nearby Chinese restaurant, Fortune of Reston. I can walk to it, and as I approached it, I realized that the sign for it was gone. Indeed, the whole restaurant was gone, stripped to the concrete floor. A little Google research later, I discover that is has actually been closed since January 7th. I guess it says something that it took me until March to notice its absence. Ah, Fortune, you will be (somewhat) missed. On my way back, I noticed that the bagel shop in the same shopping center (Manhattan Bagel) was also gone. The same Google research indicated that it had been gone for over a year. Clearly, my powers of observation need work.
