It would appear that not everyone is excited about the arrival of Cane Rosso, the Dallas-based Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant that is slowly getting ready to open its doors in The Heights. Just hours after Eater reported that Cane Rosso’s sign had been erected, a civically-minded graffiti artist decided to use the building underneath that shiny new addition to send a message.
A photo posted to Cane Rosso owner Jay Jerrier’s Facebook page this morning shows off the damage. It’s a bit hard to read, but if you look closely, you can see that the scrawled message reads "fix the sidewalk first." See for yourself:

According to Jerrier, the vandal rode by Cane Rosso at around 3:30 a.m. on a bike to complete his task, though it appears that no further damage was done. If you happen to know this graffiti artist, consider giving Cane Rosso a heads up – perhaps you’ll earn free pizza for your detective skills.
