(Stoner, feel free to delete if you're not feeling the subject. I'm really not making this a "hey, what's the best strip club to go to?" discussion, as opposed to a "should this BE HERE?" thing.)
I heard some people in my circles talking about how 1) The Block has kinda devolved from good spot to have fun to...I dunno...a dangerous place to go that happens to have entertainment, and 2) The Block needs to go away to further development for the city. Just ditch the whole thing and let places pop up elsewhere.
I disagree with the latter (and places like Norma's will ALWAYS bring in good money), but kiiiiiinda agree with the former. I remember when Crazy John's used to a be a spot to eat and hang out, and then you could just walk into somewhere if you felt like it. That vibe has kinda gone away. It feels seedier, if that makes sense. Like...you could catch Ravens players there one day and it wouldn't be a thing. I think that's gone away. And I don't know what you do to improve that.
