Dadabase

Dadabase | Place | Although it currently exists only as an online entity, Dadabase became locally famous for its storefront at Main and Broadway, which closed in 2008. Part internet cafe, part art gallery, part politically-charged clothing store, and part cultural headquarters, Dadabase captured the zeitgeist of turn of the millennium Mount Pleasant.

Usage | “I still have the Bush and the Gang t-shirt that I got at Dadabase.”
