    Yeah, that's what I thought...
    Hey! Smurfs play a very important role in my life, and keeping me happy.

    I love Smurfs. I can't even tell you how much I WISH that had been what I was doing.

      For those of you who are still laughing at me, and have managed to read this far in this thread without getting bored to tears... I thought I'd bring you an educational post.

      This is the Wiki article about the 'Mall' that we went to yesterday (Bold and emphasis added by Yours Truly). I'm wishing my 'date' had done a LITTLE bit more internet research before he picked the place. This was the 2nd hit I got when I typed "Landover Mall" into Google. How hard is that?

      Landover Mall, built and owned by Lerner Enterprises, is a defunct shopping mall in Landover, Maryland. When it opened in 1972, it was one of the largest in the region, but its popularity declined until its closure in 2002.

      In its prime, the Landover had three local department store anchors: Hecht's, Garfinckel's, Woodward & Lothrop (Woodies), and one national chain, Sears. There was a six-screen theater in the basement which had its own escalators, but it closed in 1991, the year that Landover began its rapid decline. In 1990, Garfinckel's filed for bankruptcy and went out of business. The former Garfinckel's anchor store was never replaced. Five years later (1995), Woodies went out of business.

      In 1998, JCPenney moved into the former Woodies location but found business unprofitable and closed that location three years later. In early 2002, Hecht's relocated to a new store at Bowie Town Center in nearby Bowie, Maryland. At that point Lerner decided to close the mall entirely. Sears owns its Landover location, which is still open despite also having a store at Bowie Town Center. Most of the mall's doors were sealed shut with cinder blocks. As of 2007, Sears is still open with its mall entrance sealed shut.

      Many believe that the closure was due to crime in the surrounding neighborhoods of Ardmore, Glenarden, Brightseat, Palmer Park, Dodge Park, Capitol Heights, and Kentland. As of January 2007, Landover Mall has been demolished. The Sears store remains open, but Sears is planning on relocating to a new shopping center on Ritchie Road near Capitol Heights.[1]

      Demolition began in 2006, and was completed in early 2007. Plans were for the building's concrete to be recycled. The Sears store and outparcel Sears Auto Center remain and, on the other side of the mall across from where the former Hecht's was is now a local automotive place which was at once, "Just Tires". The area of the former mall and most of it's parking lot is now fenced off. Landover Mall's sign is covered with a tarp, and the message board reads "Sears - Sears Open Daily and Sunday 10:00 - 9:30pm". The only reference to Landover Mall is an exit sign with the Original Mall logo (made to simulate the Interstate 495/ Landover Road cloverleaf).

      Gee Whiz, people, this was romantic.

      A bit of advice: If you're going out on a blind date (or any date, for that matter), and you don't know the place you're going too well, check it out a little bit beforehand! I mean, I know they say that Wiki can be unreliable, but SOME of that stuff could have been a tip-off

          Seriously! And with my brand new car with a Broncos decal on the back... I wasn't too thrilled about leaving it in that neighborhood, especially when 95% of the people I saw were wearing Skins jerseys... I thought my poor car was in for it...
