    What a bad deal for El Grullense. My business is on that street and my group enjoys eating Tacos there from time to time - Deee-liscious!! But the area is unpredictable after dark. It is dramatic how walking only one block changes the social environment so completely. I just wish there was more police presence in the area but all I usually see is an occasional police car going by. I cannot remember ever seeing the Bike Cop around there, much less a foot patrol. Can we get some good old fashioned police work on our street?
