Augh! The Snoopy Place, at Plaza Singapura, is closed. There's no explanation given at the restaurant site, just that management suspended operations. No idea what's to be done with the place.
I hope they'll find new management or sell it, and re-open, since I liked the place, and planned to read Li'l Beginnings there. Plus, while the store lacked books and video/DVDs, they had neat other trinkets -- coin banks, comic strip wrapping paper, notebooks -- and I wanted more of that ``Collective Item For Peanuts 50th Anniversary'' video CD run of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. Also while I got rcoony the Peanuts Beatles music CD -- grownups and synthesizers weakly pretending to be kids and children's instruments (like kazoos) playing classics like ``Blackbird'' -- I don't have a copy for myself, nor did I have the other music CDs built on that premise.
Also when I got home I knocked over my Imperialism II CD-ROM, breaking the jewel case. I can't play the game -- it's not Carbon-safe and crashes at the end of each turn -- but I wanted it anyway in case I ever got up a Mac I could dedicate to OS 9.0.4 (the last version which ran it). Bleah.
