Well, the door sign is true and misleading at the same time.

I have to say I was not really aware of either incarnation of The Garden Bistro, but The Free Times says the closing was announced on 12 September 2018.

I've never been quite sure what to make of this odd little strip of retail and services on Assembly. I don't think I've ever been inside any of them. I do have it in my mind one of the former tenants was big in bringing down the Blue Laws.

    "A man opened his clothing store here dressed in a Santa Claus suit and thus became one of five local merchants arrested for breaking South Carolina's laws forbidding certain sales on Sundays.

    The blue laws, in effect since Colonial times, restrict the sale of ''unessential'' items such as clothing. However, clothing considered a novelty, such as a Clemson Tiger T-shirt, may legally be sold on Sunday.

    The man arrested dressed as Santa, W. Thomas Moseley, said he opened his clothing store, Reflex, on Sunday ''to secure the same rights for the clothing consumer and the clothier that are enjoyed by all other special-interest groups.''

    Four employees at other businesses were arrested on similar charges, officials said."

    This strip was also the location of Eddies, which i believe for a while was considered one of the best lunch spots downtown. My parents ran a business in that strip for a number of years also. It was always fun going down to visit them at work while i was attending USC and being accosted by the military recruiters that flanked their store.
