Description

The new roof. 😬

Exciting news. They've painted the building lime green.

The Myapapaya people took this space last February, and the resulting disaster is astonishing. They've systematically ripped out just about everything; the awning, the porch; it appears they were trying to do interior renovations without permits and they got caught, which opened up a major can of worms. This space has been one shithole after another; the place looks worse 6 months later than it did when it closed.

This is the kind of building that should just be torn down in favor of something new. You can't put lipstick on this pig.

they should have torn this down years ago and built something else. What a waste of a canal-front locaiton

It's hard for me to believe this is a serious business based on their marketing, or lack thereof.

How can you say that with a well-thought-out name like Myapapaya?

When will restauranteurs learn that goofy, cutsie, names don't cut it for serious businesses?

How are you guys upset that the restaurant name "isn't serious enough?" You take yourselves too seriously.

Robert, No one is "upset" about the weird name.

They picked a goofy name (4a's, 2y's, and 2p's) and I just commented on it, that's all.

It's certainly not an easy name to use on google or facebook.

When your business facebook page is largely pictures of your daughter, expect criticism.

Is this going to be a restaurant? Their Facebook page looks like a family vacation home.

If they ever open. They were doing renovations without permits and got nailed by the code police.

I saw a bunch of people today poking around this place; probably the new owners. They've ripped out the front porch; they should have just torn it down and built something new.

They opened up a can of worms remodeling this building, which as been a disaster for years. Maybe it won't be as creepy when they're done.
