    Looks great!

    I'm bummed that my neighborhood ABC shuttered its doors recently. However, my liver and wallet are relieved it's closed. https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/10/01/abc-fine-wine-and-spirits-on-curry-ford-just-closed

    Would help that area a lot. Walked to Orange from the Bob Carr the other night, and it's pretty dead.

    The depot has an unusual layout for a restaurant. Again, can't imagine a company like Darden spending a huge chunk of change to make that building workable for an Olive Garden. Seems it would be easier to take over other spaces on Church Street (if they really want a location there) or look for a new build somewhere downtown (Modera or the new Church Street/Suntrust building). If it is true, it's a good sign that national retailers might be starting to eye the downtown core.

    Not buying it. Couldn't imagine the cost of getting that building reconfigured for a full service restaurant. Granted, an Olive Garden really only needs a microwave, but still...

    Thanks for the info. That's substantially more than I thought. Could very well be a game changer.

    Does anyone know how many students are expected to attend the downtown UCF and Valencia schools? Also, do we know how many staff and faculty will be supporting the schools? Curious as to just how many people this will add into the mix downtown. Seems it would be a substantial shot in the arm for many businesses.

    And how could I forget Miami Connection - the best kung fu/80s pop action flick ever! The battle at Church Street Station is epic! Or totally awesome, as the kids would have said back in the day.

    Once they closed the Piccadilly, it was all downhill from there.

    What's going on with that Lucky's location? The "coming soon" sign has been up forever, but there doesn't appear to be any work taking place.

    I recently saw the movie "Sisters," with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Was really surprised that it was set in Orlando. Did a little digging and found out that the writer (who had a writing stint on SNL for a while) was from here originally, hence setting her movie in Orlando. Wasn't filmed here, but there were a few skyline shots throughout. And there were no jokes about theme parks, tourists, etc. It was just, hey, this is a place where people actually live. Interestingly, something that is filming here is called David Makes Man. It's a drama series for OWN - Oprah's channel. Written by the guy who wrote Moonlight, with Phylicia Rashad on board as one of the cast. Not set here, supposed to take place in inner city Miami. I think filming gets underway this fall. https://www.clickorlando.com/entertainment/filming-for-owns-david-makes-man-underway-in-orlando

    The Milk District

    Long before we got Celebration, Seaside was developed in the panhandle. Played, lived and worked in that part of the state for many, many, many years. It's an interesting place and worth a visit if you're interested in urban planning. https://www.smartcitiesdive.com/ex/sustainablecitiescollective/reconsidering-seaside-florida/170706/
