THE DARK SIDE OF WHITE FLINT
Welcome to the latest installment of this special series, "The Dark Side of White Flint," a candid examination of the not-so-wonnerful, wonnerful, wonnerful side of the White Flint sector plan.

The developer and Lerner apologists said it wouldn't happen.
Bertucci's, one of the main restaurant anchors at White Flint Mall, has closed its doors forever. The restaurant has blacked out the windows, locked the doors, and vacated the premises.
A menu board stands empty outside the popular Italian restaurant. No more dessert trios will be served here.
Now one has to question how much longer the remaining large restaurants (The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang's, Dave and Buster's) will stay open.
We were told the demolition wouldn't begin for some years. It did, and already one large part of the mall is rubble.
We were told the front section would remain open for at least a few more years.
Now we know that's not true, either, as Bertucci's has closed.
Welcome to the Dark Side.
