Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. Martin St. Pizza still seems to be evolving. The slice I got the day after they opened was not as good as the slice I got recently; that first slice was still good though. One of the guys there told me they are still working on things, so once it is up and running at 100%, I think it will be a huge draw.
  2. I did not think this deserved its own thread but.... Durham is on a short list of possible expansion places for a new Tesla dealership. Go Durham! http://www.autoweek.com/apps/pbcs.dll/arti...422389269/1023/
  3. What about Peace China in Seaboard Station did that ever come to be? ncwebguy, you mentioned chinese and that place came up in my mind, I'd forgotten about. Anyone been back there?
  4. Hello all! I'm slowly learning my downtown Raleigh history, lots of good info in this thread. I finally got around to walking up to one of my favorite buildings downtown. It is the brick building to the right of the Days Inn when coming into downtown south on Capital/Dawson. Does anyone know of any history or future plans for this area or this building? Is this the proposed site for the future govt. center train station? Thanks in advance.
  5. It does look way too big. I can see a camera crew setting up on top of the awning also. Would be a perfect view for a parade. I'm sure they had no choice to build this. I'm guessing there are certain requirements for the handicap that makes this elevator necessary. If you are unable to climb stairs how else would you get out of the deck? I would have preferred the elevator rise into the Marriott or Charter Square and release passengers into a lobby or directly onto the sidewalk.
  6. Was able to get a pic of it this weekend
  7. I went to check it out during a Saturday afternoon and apparently I had just missed the grand opening party the night before. This was late January some time. They have a cool setup and will play house music at night. I talked to the owner some and he said the opening was mostly a 30's and 40's crowd for the wine tasting and then late night cocktail specials. He also wanted to do low key fashion shows every now and then. I have not been back since so I'm not sure how they are doing.
  8. Agreed, would be truely amazing. Looking forward to this.
  9. I remember that wi-fi was listed as a feature to be included for the new City Plaza. Hopefully that will not change.
  10. America's Most Wired Cities 1) Atlanta 2) Seattle 3) Raleigh From the article: Other top-10 finishers were more surprising, such as third-place Raleigh, N.C. Raleigh Chief Information Officer Gail M. Roper attributes the city's strong showing to its thriving entrepreneurial culture, technology initiatives, major universities and fast-growing, highly-educated population. As CIO of Kansas City (No. 22) from 1996 to 2006, Roper focused on digital-divide issues, working to improve youth and student access to the Internet. In Raleigh, she is considering building a citywide wi-fi network to expedite public services, cut telecom costs and deliver tourism information. I guess this makes sense because of the RTP presence. Charlotte also comes in at #7. With that, NC represents well over some of the larger cities, LA, Boston, NY, Chicago are all ranked lower.
  11. ^I'll second that. Globe was excellent.
  12. DTR needs late night pizza. Plain and simple.
  13. I saw a dumpster on Hargett outside the future Waraji. Maybe we'll start seeing some work there.
  14. The Mint plans to open up next month according to their website. The place looks great and am anxious to see their menu. Does anyone also think that this should be the last mid to upscale restaurant opening up downtown, for at least another year? Maybe it's mostly anticipation for the convention crowd next year, where people are putting their check on the company credit card. Definitely gives downtown a good impression though.
