Mortar and Pestle - Painted Green
The old Bondurant Pharmacy has been repainted green.[Danielle, 06/25/2015]
... to make it look less like a mortar and pestle and more like an exotic cocktail? Look at that giant olive!
It has been painted green since the photo. Hard to miss, and it's on the way to Keeneland, the great thoroughbred racetrack in Lexington.[giltamawa, 04/14/2015]
Not only is the Huge Mortar and Pestle a seedy, run-down liquor store now, it is also a crime magnet [recently robbed]. Why buy a structure like this if you don't want to do something special with it? Depressing.[Raquelita, 01/02/2013]
Huge Mortar and Pestle
This is now a drive-thru liquor store.[Ande, 06/15/2012]
Perhaps if one needs an Rx for self-medication. Imperial Liquor is a name with possibilities, though... the pestle sphere could be painted as an Earth globe, and the mortar walls as the Roman Colosseum.
This is now just a sad relic of what it was. It is a liquor store and not maintained well at all. Seems the demographics of the area have shifted and this great little icon shop didn't stand a chance. The giant Dixie cup up the road is still worth the trip, but this was just depressing now.[Zreet, 01/16/2012]
