The contents of The Avenue were auctioned off on Monday, Sept. 21, with auctioneer William "Butch" Emmert terming the bid- ding as "very disappointing." While the "almost new" equip- ment went for decent prices, the old equipment and dining room accessories were difficult to un- load. Emmert said one problem was that he had scheduled an auction for that morning at the Beachs'ide Restaurant up thestreet, but that it had been canceled at the last minute due to a landlord-tenant dispute. "I was hoping tO start there and just keep going up to The Avenue, but a number of the people who showed up in the morning for the first auction left, rather than waiting until afternoon for The Avenue auction," Emmert" noted. Frederick said she foresees the possibility of other commercial activity along Wilmington Av- e00ut, x0000tth the a00ea x00he00e Boudreaux's restaurant and the minigolf complex being eyed for a 100-seat restaurant, and the build- ing next to Zog's restaurant anoth- er area where changes could occur in the near future.
