My favorite local story of 2012 was how in a down economy we saw all sorts of cool new business' open up in Highland Park: Fusion Burger, Scoops, the new Club Hermosillo, La Cuevita, Ba, and many more. It's crazy to think that this is all happening when the economy is hurting. Imagine what it will be like once things pick up! It's a great time to be living in Highland Park.
