  1. Baton Rouge Growth and Development

    ^Uh huh, I understand that. It's definitely difficult getting a job here, I chalk my own job up to divine intervention, lol.

    Nice. You got a job out there?
  3. Baton Rouge Restaurants

    Well I'm just going off the admittedly vague saying that's there's nothing to do in Baton Rouge (compared to say Houston or New Orleans, etc). In high school I remember everyone said BR was boring but never said what made other cities exciting, lol! I guess clubs and museums and concerts.
  4. Baton Rouge Restaurants

    Well, according to the Business Report they're shutting down On the Border to sell the land. I actually liked them. Hopefully they'll shut down Chili's or Las Palmas and put it there or by Zaxby's. Maybe even where Ruby Tuesday's used to be or by Cane's. The article didn't say if they're look for a new location, so I'm just talking. Ya know, for a town that doesn't really have any entertainment except eating we're missing a lot of restaurants.

    ^ Yh, things are pretty sad. I don't keep up with politics but I don't think that's all entirely the issue. There so many ways to break this down but here's my take. I was just thinking about how this state became populated as opposed to say Texas or California. Probably mostly slaves, people looking to escape government surveillance and people just followings jobs. Not saying these are bad people but just that you can only do so much with the human resources you have. It's not politically correct but like someone said, if you don't acknowledge the real real issue then you can't fix it. I don't claim to know the real real issues but they probably lie beyond the boundary of political correctness. edit: typos

    What kind of dynamic?
  7. Baton Rouge Growth and Development

    ^Lol, reminds me of the frozen yogurt thing. I would like to see a really nice, heavily themed miniature golf course. I saw one in Florida once that was made up like a tropical island with a little waterfall.

    I remembered this post and this article showing a pic of the proposed replacement for Kirby Hall: Cedar Hall. Phase two of Nicholson Gateway set to begin LSU is seeking final approval today on phase two of the Nicholson Gateway Project, an $83 million renovation and upgrade to several dorms on campus. The project, called the Greenhouse District, will demolish Kirby-Smith Hall, a 577-bed dorm, and replace it with a new 405-bed first-year residence called Cedar Hall. Evangeline Hall and Highland Hall will also be renovated, and the project will develop new AgCenter greenhouses to replace the ones being scrapped for the dorm projects. https://www.businessreport.com/article/phase-two-nicholson-gateway-set-begin

    Yh, the article said they both have the same developer. And good point!

    Looks like we might get a TopGolf https://www.businessreport.com/article/topgolf-asks-baton-rouge-rezone-site-potential-location Tee time: Topgolf seeks rezoning for possible Baton Rouge location Topgolf, a Dallas company that operates entertainment-focused driving ranges, is asking the East Baton Rouge Planning Commission to rezone the former Tinseltown site off Siegen Lane for a possible new location. The facility would be a 55,000-square-foot, three-story building on a large plot of land at Siegen Lane Marketplace.The site was formerly occupied by Tinseltown until the movie theater closed and was demolished two years ago. The rezoning request is to allow Topgolf to sell alcohol, according to documents filed with the Planning Commission.

    Here it is, they did report it, just years ago. It's called Cheval Point. http://www.hometownhomebuilder.com/community/cheval-point
  12. Pointe-Marie TND Development

    Oh that's what that is? I thought motor coach court way a fancy way of saying parking lot, lol! Well, maybe they plans will change.
  13. Baton Rouge Coffee House

    I guess BR has some pretty loyal citizens. I guess since we're second fiddle to NO which is itself a lower tier city we don't take things for granted as much. i was just bringing that up cause I went to the Houston thread to see if anyone was discussing the disaster and most of it hasn't been touched in years. The only active thread is photo thread with one poster and some of our residents. Kind of sad in a way. \/ Reply: I agree.
  14. Baton Rouge Photo of the Day

    Here's a sweet pic of a double rainbow. The one on top is very light but I actually saw the main one touch the ground. I was really tempted to get out and look for gold but I saw someone had already parked on the side of the road near it, lol! Hopefully this is our covenant that the water won't come here anytime soon.

    They seem to be building a development south of Farr horse park north of what I call Laurel Plantation or what Google has labeled as Farr model airpark. It must not be large or the Business Report would have reported on it? Looking at the initial plan it's not part of the proposed Riverwood village.
