Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

I recall when the developers changed 911 Walnut to 909 Walnut. Imagine the atrocities they were able to avoid.

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

Rental activity is busier than I've seen it in the 15 years since I started. I wonder, are people ready to start buying again?

Re: Misc Crossroads News

I went in City Barrel on 1st Friday and luckily scored 2 seats at the bar. The place was packed. The bartender did a great job and our food came out quickly. The pork chop was indeed excellent. The beer was very good, too, although the names are ridiculous. I was blown away at how smoothly things we...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

I spoke to the chef before they opened and he said the pork chop was the menu item he was most excited about. I'm intrigued. To me, a pork chop is the least exciting item on a menu (maybe after a turkey burger). I feel just about anything on a restaurant menu is more appealing than the pork chop of...

Maybe they'r...

Re: Brookside

We had a similar thing happen here in Columbus Park. Some sissy developers came in and started calling it East Market. Glad that didn't last.

Re: Cocktails

Obviously not the best cocktail joint in town, but I like the Old Fashioned they have on tap at Parlor. It's only $9 - which is relatively cheap in this day and age. And they are $6 during happy hour. And happy hour lasts all day on Monday. Pro tip: do not have more than 2. Actually, that's more of...

Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

I know someone who is closely involved with this and from what I understand, they did not use those words. I was told that, after the last shooting, they decided to stop having rap music and it got interpreted that way, by the one person who was booking/promoting those shows.
