Aladdin's Cave - Clutches of sad remains, millions weep a fountain

We're always reluctant to pronounce time of death for a local business, but weeks after BC readers first reported that it was loooking suspiciously closed, Aladdin's Cave, the Crofton Park cafe, is still showing no signs of life.

It seemed a little confused about what kind of place it was and the passer-by might have struggled to guess what it had to offer, but nonetheless readers had given the coffee and service pretty positive reviews. We're sorry to say it looks like it's fulfilled the Seinfeld prophecy. BC is very bad man.

In other news on this strip, the Thai Mini Mart is still closed and BC regular Paddyom reports the Crofton Park mini mart has changed owners, with no visible side-effects.
