Does anyone know who owns the Silver Grill building on Monroe Drive these days? I received this urgent email a few days ago:

I have an odd question that I thought you might be able to help answer: I collect neon signs, and I would *love* to find out whether the old Silver Grill sign is for sale. Might you know whom to contact? I think that the last owners were Stephan Barrani and Sam Scott - I'm not sure if they still own the building, or how to get in touch with them.

Of course, in an ideal world, the sign would just stay there on Monroe Drive where it belongs, but I have a feeling that at some point somebody will take it down, so . . . maybe it could be me!

If you have information, write me, and I will forward it to the reader. Thanks.

CAUTION!: Do not read this if you are one of those, like the writer of a certain blog about ethnic dining, who gets bent out of shape whenever I make a sexual allusion in my writing - especially a gay one.

Okay. That's out of the way.

I've begun writing a bi-weekly dining column, "Food Porn," for The Georgia Voice, the city's gay newspaper...
