Mixx is gone, right?
yeah. local places seem about as likely to fail as the national ones when you back out the survivorship bias. RIP to chefburger, mixx, cleaver cork, memas, amc. johnnys bristol and brgr still kicking it though. woohoo...
Yeah I don’t think local joints have any better chance at survival. A good concept ran properly beats out local Vs National. Cordish has always tried to mix it up and if they had it their way, it would be 80/20 local/National.

Maybe this is the time where more locals can lease up.

Bar Louie and Dave’s spaces may become one place but wouldn’t be a bar or restaurant.

Saucer spot is up in the air. ;)

Few interesting ideas for the hotel space floating around.

Impressed Dubliner is holding on, not sure how.

Whopper Bar space has some interest.

Will update when I can.

I saw that Plate in Brookside is opening a second location at Park Place in Leawood. What is the comparison between Park place and P&L? Are rents similar? Is business stronger out there? Why aren’t we seeing successful places out there open second locations in P&L?

I still think Whopper Bar would make a great Shake Shack, but I doubt the traffic numbers are there. But I could be wrong!

It is getting harder and harder for movie theaters to survive as a business. It's just become too easy to stay at home and get quality entertainment every single night.
To say that an at home experience is "quality entertainment" is mildly laughable.

There is no comparison to a real theater, unless you've made a proper theater.

B&B to their credit have tried to make theaters you can’t make at home.

They’re clearly trying more than most.

Agree with you and even if you dump 50k into a home theater, it’s still not the same.

They’re good operators.
