Here we have the other block that constitutes Downtown Mesa Proper. At the other end there is the Mesa Arts Center, which can easily be claimed by downtown, but I will likely make it subject of its own little photo study.
Once again the time was around 9:00 AM to 9:30 as I strolled this stretch of Main Street. Breezy and sunny; today we are looking for a high around seventy-five. About the same amount of foot traffic as yesterday, but I did happen on one business owner as he was setting out the tables for al fresco dining at Cucina di vita restaurant. I introduced myself, and he told me his name was Mark. I asked when the restaurant had opened. January 12th, he told me, just over two months ago. And how was business so far? Better than expected, trending above their business plan projections. Nice to hear. I didn't take a picture of it, but almost directly across the street is another pizzaria, this one with no discernible activity so far, although they may have been making dough in the back.
I do feel the need to point out that the young mother and her child are not part of the famous Main Street statuary.
