  1. I’m out sure what a typical IKEA does revenue wise but I know the DFW Nebraska Furniture Mart, they were disappointed with just missing out on $1 billion of annual revenue. That place is pretty awesome. I bought couch there last week.
  2. I think Ikea’s furniture sucks, but I really like their kitchen and dining room stuff (cups, plates, pans, etc.). That store is very popular, it would be a huge win for DS!
  3. I stayed at the Hampton Inn downtown over the July 4th holiday.
  4. Spot on Cajun. It shows the ineptitude of the state government.
  5. That Ruby Tuesday’s spot has been empty for years. If On The Border is out, hopefully you can get a Chuys. Way better in my opinion of the chain TexMex places.
  6. DFW is definitely pushing for HQ2. The only low marks here is the public transportation.
  7. Nice. I left a little over 2 years ago and haven't looked back.

    I left, miss it on occasion but wouldn't move back. No regrets. I'm planning on visiting later this summer. The last time I was back I noticed how dirty things were, and the pathetic infrastructure like you mentioned. On top of that, as a software dev, there was hardly any decent opportunities in BR. DFW has a ton.
  9. That sucks. BR isn't equipped to deal with tornadoes, no sirens or anything. We got lucky this year with the severe weather. No tornados in the immediate area. We had solid golf ball size hail at my house and about 2 miles from here they had some softball size hail.
  10. http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/article_fc165952-3749-11e7-b7bf-b7ddf54f0dd2.html GONZALES — Ascension Parish officials say contractors are putting the final touches this month on the long-awaited sewer installation project required for the widening of La. 42 in Prairieville. But state officials said bids for the actual road construction work for La. 42 will be delayed by a month and, once the bid is let, work should start in the early fall on the two- to three-year project through northern Ascension's growing suburbs. I am so glad I don't have to rely on LA42 on a daily basis any longer. These 5 year road projects are ridiculous.
  11. I think BTR would do aot better if it had a direct flight to the midwest (Chicago), west coast (LA) amd the north east (NYC). There is a discount airline called Allegiant that flys between Phoenix or Vegas to smaller airports.
  12. I do miss driving by that neighborhood, it was fun seeing what people drive. I remember waiting at a red light, two BMW 7 series directly in front, a Mercedes-Benz beside me, a Bentley on the other side, and an Infinity behind me. And then there was me, in my dirty Ford. My house is about 40 miles from downtown Dallas, its very spread out. The grand entrances are definitely a Texas thing. They do it on the houses too, our entryway is 22 feet tall from the floor to ceiling. DFW used to be cheap but in the last 5 years its moved into the top 10 most expensive in the country. The house we bought has gone up 30k in less than a year, DFW average is 8% increase in 2016. Frisco just passed 500k as the average closing price on homes. I have a friend who paid 250k three years ago for a 3,000 sq ft house in Frisco that is now valued near 500k. Its absolutely ridiculous how fast the price has shot up here.
  13. Neither actually. We closed on a new house just outside of McKinney near US75. We rented the first year and I drove by Phillips Creek Ranch every day. Its very nice but very pricey.
  14. I think apt.of everyone's wish list things are possible provided transportation is fixed, schools are fixed, and the state government is fixed and not broke.
  15. I agree although 120 lots isn't awful. My neighborhood has 4 to be shared by 1600 houses, high school and middle school.
