Driving east on Glenwood Avenue away from the city, you take a right on Second Avenue, just shy of the East Lake Golf Club. You notice a warning on your right, painted in 3-foot-tall letters on a cement wall: Wake Up! Thus you are alert and prepared for the oddity on the walls other side. The ramshackle building is painted bright yellow, and its façade displays, in crooked, cut-out, red-and-blue lettering, not the businesss name, per se as there is no discernible name but a confounding description of what goods and services might be found inside. The words PETS N BAIT are followed, inexplicably, by TAXES, after which comes the similarly incongruous TIRES (NEW & USED). Your guess is as good as ours.
