Ice cream pies, latest business shuffle

First, the important news (to me, anyway): Just in time for the holidays, Molly Moon's is serving up ice cream pies to go. Right now, they have pumpkin clove ice cream in a graham cracker crust, but in a couple of weeks, there'll be some peppermint ice cream pies as well. Having already tried the pumpkin clove ice cream pie, I can say that it's quite delicious, although would probably benefit from a dollop of whipped cream.
In other news, neighborhood institution and Seattle's oldest hardware store Tweedy & Popp will soon be vacating their longtime home on 45th Street, but fear not—they're just moving to Wallingford Center. While I'm certainly glad that Wallingford Center will have a new tenant with such built-in goodwill from the neighborhood, I'm wondering how Tweedy & Popp's ambience of dusty shelves will fit in with the sunnier aesthetic of Wallingford Center.

Finally, anyone know what's going on with High Maintenance Bitch? Their door recently sported a rent-due notice from the building's landlord, and the store seemed oddly unoccupied during business hours. Send any tips our way.

I've ALWAYS wondered about that place...(High Maintenance). I've never ever seen it open, no matter what time of day I walk past it. So weird.
