Force an IP address change in Ubuntu

I use Ubuntu on my laptop at BigBlueHat almost exclusively (save for some Photoshopping). I ran into a problem last week with having the same IP address as our wireless printer. After some man page research, I can up with this solution:

sudo ifconfig eth1 address

For me, that changes my wireless card (eth1) to use IP address. The really happy part was that there was no rebooting required, and the changes was quick and painless though a bit geeky.

Market Square Deli

Anyone know what happened to Market Square? It's been closed for a few weeks now with the message "thanks for 3 years" on their sign. Any information would be appreciated.
