If you’ve ever been in the Mile End, then you might have noticed that there is a variety of businesses there. People living in Mile End know that. Among these businesses is “Le Phillies Cheesesteak“.
For months now, people have been scratching their heads, standing in front of the building’s window: “What is it they’re selling? Why is it always empty?”. Today, everything changedmaybe. One of our interns, while she was riding her Bixi on the sidewalk and talking to us on her phone, noticed a customer inside the Phillies. She immediately stopped to observe. So what is Le Phillies Cheesesteak?
As the customer exited the Phillies, our unpaid intern started asking the important questions.
So what is this place? Is it a store?
“I don’t know.”
Did you buy food there? Do they make food?
“There was kind of a smell in there. It smelled–”
Could you describe that smell to us?
“What do you mean ‘us’?”
I’m sorry, I’m a journalist? This is an interview?
“No you’re not.”
A SECOND customer was spotted inside, but it ended up being someone on the TV hanging on the wall.
