UNION SQUARE—Diesel is being highly cryptic about why their 14th Street store has been closed for most of July. The sign on the door says that they're making some "'cool' enhancements," which sounds like a pun to us, but we have no idea what the wordplay on "cool" could possibly mean. (Better air conditioning?
