As I am building up my LEGO Paradisa display, I ended up with two 6402 Sidewalk Cafes and it gave me the idea to make it the starting point of a story by merging the two into one, removing one of the (exclusive to this set) printed ice cream tiles, and adding a thief (a pirate from the same era) that steals the ice cream.
That also gives my future Crockett and Tubbs cops something to do.
First one of the original sets.
The two sets merged
Oh no! Somebody has stolen the ice cream!
