As cold weather sets in for the season, I find myself looking
for reminders of warmth. Here is the brightly painted,
decorative window of BARcelona Tapas Restaurant at the corner of
Ohio and Delaware Streets. I enjoyed the way the hand-painted
letters and squiggles repeated their message in the shadows
on the walls, adding pattern to the colorful walls.
Several years ago, this building housed a Burger King outlet
then stood empty for an equally long span of time.
A few years ago the bar was opened. I much prefer this
sunny facade to the corporate presence, as it has
the air of a more friendly, neighborhood establishment.
