  1. I would be happy if the city would just maintain them properly. The only reason for the suspension-destroying potholes in the brick streets in downtown and surrounding neighborhoods is intentional neglect resulting from an unwillingness to spend the money necessary to maintain them.
  2. The current terminal and airsides were ~20-years out of date the day they opened. Everything done since is just lipstick on a pig.
  3. It was a much more interesting place ~20-years ago. At one time in the late-90s to mid aughts they had 8 anchor stores; Macy's [nee Burdines], Sears, JCPenny's, Dillards Women, Dillard's Men [separate building], Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom's, and Lord & Taylor. The Saks [nee Belk's] is now the new food court, the Lord & Taylor [nee Robinson's, Masion Blanche, Gayfer's, Parisian] is now a two-story Forever 21 and American Girl, and the Dillard's men's store became Nordstrom's which then became Dick's and Crayola. Along the way, other higher end stores like Pottery Barn closed as well. If the Central and South American tourists ever find a new place to go, that place is dead.
  4. What does Disney Springs have that Florida Mall doesn't? Lots of interesting dining choices and a massive movie theater among other advantages. With the closing of la Madeleine, the most interesting dining option at Florida Mall is the three identical "Asian" food court kiosks all serving the same bourbon chicken and rice. And there hasn't been a movie theater within ~400 miles of Florida Mall since the General Cinemas 7-plex [located roughly where Target is today] and Cineplex Odeon [located in the empty strip center directly across the street from Target] both closed in the late '80s.
  5. Joining Ron Jon who already left Florida Mall for Disney Springs - though M&M is moving to a store that is ~4,000 sf smaller.
  6. No, none of the others mentioned have closed - that was my point about the Sentinel needing more copy editors. I suspect that what the author meant to say was something like, "After spending two decades on Park Avenue alongside other big-name national stores like Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn, the Gap is now set to close after this Christmas season.".
  7. Well, they could still use another two or three copy editors. Here's an example from an article today about the Park Avenue Gap store closure which I referenced above:
  8. The Gap on Park Avenue will close after this Christmas. I still don't understand how iconic brands like The Gap can't see major changes in their own industries coming until they have been made almost extinct by them. How did The Gap not see H&M et al coming and make necessary adjustments to their business?
  9. Perhaps more appropriate here [?] It will be interesting to see how the Dean Foods bankruptcy affects T.G. Lee operations. Not that Dean would immediately shut down T.G. Lee or anything that drastic, but it is interesting that Dean is said to be looking for buyers for its assets and not looking to reorganize and reemerge from bankruptcy as a going concern.

  11. Great night for Tulsa anyway. The 7-3 Knights, not so much.
  12. But without the stench of 50-years of cigarette smoke and used beer, hopefully.
  13. Hard to see what their corporate argument is for why people should patronize them. They are slow, more expensive than the competition, and they don't really offer anything that you can't get elsewhere for a better price or with better service. Freddy's for example offers exactly the same thing, - and by exactly I mean in the same way that Krystal and White Castle are exactly the same thing - but with what is IMO much better and faster service, cleaner restaurants, and you aren't asked to tip.
  14. Thanks but no thanks. South Florida can have Trump all to themselves.
  15. Apologies for the cross-post but I posted in the 'Bars and Restaurants' forum. What was I thinking? ***** The Steak-n-Shake's on E. Colonial and Mills have closed. I'm surprised it took this long. I stopped going years ago because of the ridiculous wait times whether dine-in or drive-thru. And when you did eat-in, having to tip after waiting for half an hour to be handed a soggy hamburger and fires just kind of added insult to injury. Unfortunate that the staff will lose their jobs, but IMO good riddance to a sub-par dining experience.
