Ruby Tuesday 2 - Thin crust, hold the rubble

A canopy remains intact minus the restaurant. Photo by Patti 

Ruby Tuesday 2 is back amidst of destruction...the building that housed the Derby CT pizzeria Italian Pavilion (IP) is no more...yet the not very strong canopy still stands. It seems odd that the massive wrecking equipment to meant demolish walls of concrete could not deny the ruby fabric a reason to stand. Not to worry, the IP moved about 300 ft (91M) down the road to a bigger and better eatery. With a new canopy too, crisis averted...

(as of yesterday the old building is still a pile of rubble, the ruby awning standing still...)

How weird that such a flimsy structure should be able to weather the storm! A fascinating scene!

Oh my goodness. For a moment there I was afraid there'd be no pizza at your house!

It still looks new.

Maybe the canopy is still standing there because it still looks like new and it's a waste to just destroy it.

Moms... Check nyo

I like to title this the last canopy standing ^_^ Great to know they are not out of business but transferring to a bigger and newer location, hoorayy to that!!
Thanks for the visit Ralph!
