Of course you can't dip into the Common Share (now closed) or TomTom or Heaven and Hell or grab a slice at Pizza Mart, but they are vaguely similar.

I had a view of the Capitol and Monument out of my window during my time there (and the drug dealing going on below).
Well, if the only criteria is being a couple of blocks long and a bunch of bars, then you could also say that McKinney Ave is like Wisconsin Ave or U Street or Conn. Ave in Dupont Circle, etc etc. I was referring more to the vibe...nothing like Adams Morgan and very few retail shops along McKinney.

I never did like Common Share and I couldn't stand TomTom. I love 80s music and so I loved Heaven and Hell

When I think of Knox-Henderson, I think of the area around all of the mattress stores, the Apple Store, and Z-Gallerie and Cole Avenue. The Fiesta on Ross is sort of in the "hood" and not really near Knox or Uptown. It is on the corner of Ross and Greenville and I also wouldn't consider that a full service grocery store. I would consider it more like an ethnic grocery store or specialty grocery store.
What do you consider a full service grocery store?

$2 drinks at Common Share had the uncanny ability to bring both dems and conservatives together...

But of course the 'vibe' isn't anywhere in Dallas sadly.
