Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. Well thanks for the veiled insult Jones, by my business school professors say I do know a little bit about numbers, otherwise they wouldn't have awarded me that Master's degree, now would they? If you think you know so much about me, why don't you take the time to read my publicly available bio. I feel so informal about this, you seem to know so much about you, yet I don't even know your name, why is that? Oh, maybe its because I don't hide behind an anonymous message board persona. You know what else I know? I also know that if I or my family members buy up land and then use public resources to improve the value of that land, that I have some ethical, um, "challenges."
  2. Don't know why you feel the need to point out the corruption of the NC Senate to me given I've been on that beat for about 3 years now... On a different note: Hard Times Cafe closing this week. http://www.newraleigh.com/articles/archive...s-cafe-closing/
  3. Hmm... "David Meeker, Chris Powers, and David
  4. I figured a spot in The Hillsborough was the most logical place. Kinda interesting that Second Empire makes a move on this right after the plug is pulled on The Hillsborough.
  5. Sandwich/coffee shop to serve the new law school perhaps?
  6. If a Subway opened up in North Raleigh, would the Mayor show up and make a big announcement?
  7. Tookies has been busy every time I've been there for lunch. Peace China, well... let's just say I was less than impressed. I'll get Red Dragon or take out a 2nd mortgage on the house and splurge for PF Chang's before I go back there. Ace has been dead every time I've been in there. I don't know how they will make it.
  8. Ok, I hate to seem like I'm against poor people, but when is the City going to relocate the low-income housing residents out of that tower on Glenwood South and sell that huge piece of land off to developers. It just doesn't fit the area anymore. Time for it to go. Over 2 acres of land generating no tax revenue in a high growth area.
  9. Well if McCrory would have won, the CLT-Paris flight would have been booked so he could keep going often to study the transportation system.
  10. Ate their today to try it out. They have a build your own salad bar and a build your own pasta bar. Hot items like burgers and gyros available as well. The deli sandwiches are all pre-made and sitting in a deli case and pulled out for your order. That was a little disappointing. I know it saves time, but just makes me wonder about the freshness. Food was OK. I had a chicken parmesan panini that was pre-made in the deli case, they took it out and grilled it. With chips and drink combo it was $9.14.
  11. The thing that surprised me the most about these signs were they were primarily in the yards of the older African-American households on Oberlin. I know there is some concern about increased traffic on Oberlin near Wade (I know firsthand that you can sometimes have a quite long wait turning left off Craig or Hillcrest onto Oberlin), but I can take more traffic if I have more places I can walk to and it increases my property value. To steal the GOP's mantra from last month instead of "Drill Baby Drill" I say "Build Baby Build."
  12. In another sign of Rocky Top Hospitality's struggles, Bogart's is no longer open for lunch. They now open at 5pm. I was really digging the $6 lunch specials. Their burgers were surprisingly really good.
  13. Heard a pretty good rumor that Aries will be closing soon, undergoing some renovations and reopening with new management and less of an "eclectic" nightly themes format. It'll be more mainstream nightclub like Ess Lounge.
  14. Demolition seems to have begun on the old service station across Hillsborough from Char-Grill.
