On the way back from a meeting at Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake, I stopped by The Green Spot, which took over the old Mobil gas station at Northcliff and Buckner near the lake. The gas stations were still cordoned off, but the guy behind the counter said that "in the next day or two" they’ll be selling gas again, which will probably help draw customers into the store, too. Inside, you’ll find an assortment of healthy snacks and drinks; in fact, it’s one of the few places I’ve seen around here that sells Blue Sky soda "on tap".
