I had seen an Apple store, but never until yesterday at Lenox Square Mall had I seen a Microsoft store. It is often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and Microsoft has imitated the Apple store look all the way down the line, right down to the logo-only sign above the door. And apparently Microsoft is grooming X-Box Music to be its iTunes equivalent.
On Christmas Eve, my iPhone’s Yelp app led me to a new breakfast restaurant called Homegrown GA in the Reynoldstown neighborhood. I called to confirm that they were indeed open, and when I arrived, I was thrilled to find that there was a garden behind the restaurant that grows some of the food and spices for the restaurant. Homegrown proved to be a warm and welcoming restaurant with good breakfast and reasonable prices. A room in back houses a small thrift store.
