When a business closes in Amarillo, it breaks our hearts.  Especially when it is a locally owned business and they close their doors.

The Eatery on 6th closed their doors.  We do realize that we are far behind with this news.  It wasn't until a group of us were talking about The Eatery on the 6th that someone said, they closed.

The Curse of the Concrete Island


We shared some history with you and the list of businesses that have occupied this building at 2601 SW 6th. We were rooting for The Eatery on 6th.  But, sadly yes, The Eatery on 6th is closed.  It was such a lovely place to go and get some amazing baked goods.

Even though Concrete Island claimed another business, it didn't really, just a storefront.

Although what we knew as The Eatery on 6th is closed, something new has emerged.  The delicious goodies are still available and Miss Shaniece is still baking up everything you love.  However, just not in a storefront.

Strange and Unusual Sweets

According to the website for Strange and Unusual Sweets,

After five years of running The Eatery on Route 66, I decided to downsize and get back to doing what I love-baking high quality sweets from scratch. I brought all of my equipment home and opened Amarillo’s only ghost bakery 👻 I’ve spent my life feeling out of place and trying to fit myself into spaces not meant for me. It’s time to embrace the weird. I express myself through food and I can’t wait to share something spooky sweet with you.

And something spooky is what is being served up!

Not only that, just look at this delicious bread

Oh and did we mention Macaroons?

Although we are sad to see The Eatery on 6th closed, we are super excited that the heart and soul of that business is still going strong cooking up amazing spooky treats!

Amarillo's Cursed Buildings – Historic Route 66, 2813 SW 6th

There are some places around town that just can't seem to stay in business for very long. This is one of them.

The address of the cursed building is 2813 SW 6th Street. This building was originally built in 1930. This place was originally a service station. I'm sure in the heydays of Rt. 66, this place was the place to stop to get your car serviced. However, in the last 15 years, this building has seen many different faces.

Amarillo Cursed Buildings - 715 S. Polk

Polk Street is a great place to spend an evening. However, over the years, Polk Street has seen many businesses come and go. One of these buildings is at 715 S. Polk. It has been many things over the years, mainly bars, but it seems as soon as one moves in, it moves right out.

So what all has been in there? Let's take a look back at 715 S. Polk.

This building was originally built in 1915, it was known as The Hollywood.
