It was a year ago the above photo of a tagged-up Roman's (at (7373 Sunset in Guitar Row) ran on the site. Not seen in that photos were the abandoned couches sitting on the sides of the street, nor could the image convey the feeling of sketchiness that pervaded the block. No more! Last Sunday, Roman's replacement, Aroma, was packed--people were even waiting outside in lines. And the whole Guitar Row area is looking less grimy. Even the Econo Lodge is doing its part, sporting a shiny new red sign; the manager tells us it went up about five months ago. Hizzuh, Guitar Row!
