All the glamour of Tiny's Hut was inside. The building was
surrounded by a cheesy unpaved parking lot, most of it
used to store some of Greyhound's oldest and most decrepit
buses. Nearest major neighbors were the Ford dealer's
used car lot and Lommel's Creamery, which had seen better
days (although their ice cream was locally renowned). Lommel's
was also the depot for Greyhound commuter buses, and we
always regarded it as the bus rider's friend. But in general, the
forbidding neighborhood ambience of Tiny's, and its ambivalent
name, made it appear to passersby like an alky bar. Which it
wasn't. Tiny's didn't have much traffic.
