Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

That lobby looks like a fun place to take some LSD.

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

^ Seems like a good spot for a higher end hotel with structured parking etc. The riverfront is turning into a suburban interstate exit or something you might find in Oklahoma City or something. Hate to be negative, but these past few developments look terrible. I hate to agree with this, but it's t...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

People on this board, and everywhere else, are quick to point out why a restaurant fails and/or claim that a restaurant is successful. Appearances can be deceiving. You might think they are doing well when, in fact, they may be struggling and about to close. Same logic for when you think they may be...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

After so many years of headaches and disgust with Time/Warner (pre-Google Fiber), I would never switch to Spectrum – even if it was free. Even if they paid me.

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

The Thai place in the old Pizza Bella is excellent, but perhaps a bit pricey.
I had the pancake at Shio last week and cannot stop thinking about it. In a good way.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

I don't pay much attention to this issue and haven't read through this entire thread, but wonder why I've never heard anyone suggest Columbus Park for a stadium? I think there is 6 to 9 acres assembled and awaiting development.

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Take a look at what they did in Columbus park with the "CP Lofts" and picture that down there. I wonder what the lifespan of those buildings are. I'd wager not more than 20 years. Future Motel 6 or Rodeway Inn I would bet a minimum of 50-75 years with regular investment. The two hotels at Paseo/Ind...

I would probably prefer to share the road with professional and definitely insured bus drivers than random citizens who may or may not be drunk, insured, high, texting, etc.
