Can it be? Looks like the young and hip are bringing their ironic
foodie ways to ye ol’ Palace Family Steakhouse.
In true professional form, Bernalwood has sent their super-sneaky

The uHood is now the potential home to not one, but TWO massage
parlors. In addition to the aforementioned parlor, there is a new foot
massage parlor opening right next to Toads.
Is Valencia turning Church street on us? Or Broadway? Only time will tell.
