The Painted lady

Purple house. Norfolk granby streetSince I moved to Hampton Roads, I have been a faithfull patron of "The Painted Lady".  It closed a couple of months ago.  As I was doing errands in Norfolk with my son, I couldn't help feeling the emptiness of a place where I took all my relatives from out of town, who made fun of the outside color. I held baby showers, and was invited to other friends celebrations.  Needless to say, I was very surprised to see that it had closed down.  I don't know the details but I imagine the down turn in the economy had something to do with it.  So If you drive by Granby and 17th street, and see the purple house, know that is now an empty building.

In it's old gift shop they have opened a place called.

"Weltons Seafood".  When I recover, I will probably go and check it out.
