Per Capita In Laurel

Posted: 11/16/2009 by that's Elbert in Laurel, Laurel Delaware

Chris Slavens’ comments on a previous post reminded me of a long forgotten post draft. So, without further ado…

The thriving metropolis of Laurel, Delaware has been said to have more traffic lights per capita than any town in Delaware. There are seven traffic lights in Laurel proper and close to the town limits. I have joked around and suggested that Laurel has some other things that could be added to the list.

First, there are 4 liquor stores in Laurel proper and close to the town limits. It was 5 but right now Laurel Liquors is closed and has a homemade “for lease” sign in front of the place.

Second, there are 4 restaurants that feature pizza as part of their menu. If Bargain Bill’s sells pizza again we’ll be at 5 again.

Have I missed anything?

    Laundromats. Four of them. The closed liquor store used to be one. Code enforcement officers. Three of them.

    You can get an old fashion thin crust pizza at the Laurel American Legion.
    I think we have a good mix in town; good sporting events, plenty to eat, booze it up and go to church to repent.
