Papa Murphy's Pizza...
Used to be one in Midtown Palo Alto. It's been gone for a few years now, I guess.
There was one in Sunnyvale, on El Camino. Closed, apparently for renovations, earlier this year. Google Maps showed it being open now. Joy stopped by in search of an easy dinner: nope. It's now something else entirely.
Murphy's is still in business, apparently, but the nearest one (as the crow flies) is in Fremont. Which is not at all convenient anywhere close to dinner time.
Sure are a lot of things disappearing. Orchard Supply is going out of business entirely; I guess there's still an Ace Hardware somewhere in downtown Palo Alto (the local hardware store in the Midtown area having folded a couple of years ago), but basic hardware stores are getting mighty sparse around the interim digs. (No, Restoration Hardware doesn't count. Not at all.) And the quirky little novelty shops pretty much vanished over a decade back.
