Vice City: Liquor Store To Replace Porn Shop

Screen-shot-2012-03-12-at-3.18.00-PM

The West Philly liquor gods have spoken and the porn gods are weeping. University City Review reports that a state-run Wine & Spirits shop will take the place of Risqué Adult Video Store at 43rd and Chestnut, as the porn shop's lease is set to expire. At a meeting of the Spruce Hill Community Association, an owner of the Chestnut Street Plaza confirms plans to give the property to the liquor store.

Our neighborhood's recently deceased Wine & Spirits at 41st and Market left a void in accessible booze on campus, and the nearby store on 49th and Baltimore has long lines and a (frankly) terrible selection. But there is hope! According to Liquor Control Board District Manager Jimmette Bolden, "Our aim is to move the Plaza to a higher level. We don’t want to lower it. This liquor store will be more upscale than the one at 49th and Baltimore Avenue." Shazam! But where will Risqué go?
