This Liquor Store Sign Outage Is Unfortunate To Say The Least

Rothchild's Liquors is known in West Town for being slightly run down, but it's a good place to grab normal brands of mass-market beer or liquor not available at the fancier liquor stores nearby. But a light outage on their sign has led to it looking even more questionable at night.

We just hope it doesn't lead them to turn it off, since it's a beautiful example of a classic neon sign and there aren't many of them left these days.
