A Risqué Turn Of Events: Liquor Store Denied Porn Shop Space

Seems as though plans for the new University City liquor store at 43rd and Chestnut–  you'll recall that it's the one that would replace the porn shop– have fallen through. Unfortunately, the Zoning Board rejected the application, which was the second in five years following an unsuccessful attempt in 2007, as the DP reports. Though some small-business owners welcomed the proposed venture, the West Philadelphia Muslim community protested having a liquor store so close to their mosques.

Looks like you'll have to keep getting your booze at either 49th and Baltimore or 19th and Chestnut. In any case, this raises a bigger question: what should go in the porn shop's place?
