  1. Yes, I completely agree with you. But sometimes people love it when their fires are fueled by getting others worked up over things. If everyone would stop calling him out then maybe he'll back off with the negative posts...and maybe he won't, who cares. If I argued with some of the ignorant people I deal with on a daily basis then 99% of the time it would have no affect and I'd probably get my a$$ beat. When someone is raised and taught a certain way it's hard to change them. Sometimes you just have to ignore them and wait 'til they're gone.
  2. I for one am tired of the personal lashes at gs3. I don't always like his posts, and sometimes they make me want to walk into the next room and slap my roommates for no reason, but he is certainly entitled to his opinion and here on the internets he's free to share them! Criticism is a good thing! Without criticism the powers in charge would never be questioned and we would have no say in any matter (heh, like we do anyways...). You don't have to like what he says, but really guys? Are you putting yourself in some "better place" by turning around and calling him out completely out of the blue?
  3. I believe River Falls is somewhat between Caesar's Head and Jones Gap State Parks. In that general area at least.
  4. So this would be a 3rd location correct? Or is that just outdated from the Woodruff Rd store opening?
  5. Wild, I knew nothing about this. Looks pretty cool.
  6. Thanks. I like different aspects of all three honestly...if it were my decision I would pick and choose from each one. I definitely think having at least two bridges connecting each side is nice to keep somewhat of a flow around the park, instead of having everyone congest a single bridge. The skate park would also be a nice touch! I'm not a street skater myself (longboarder here!) but skaters definitely need a place to skate in the downtown area. The city (police, that is) is always yelling at skaters, so why not give them a place to go. Also seems like they're unsure whether they want a b
  7. This link is no longer available, anywhere else we can see the options?
  8. It looks to me like most of the park would be on land that is already open, except for a couple of buildings (but not homes). But I'm with you, I hate to see people kicked out of their homes...it's one of those dark things that happens and most people look the other direction and say "it needs to be done". Think of the outrage you would here if you told Chanticleer residents you were tearing their houses down to build a park...yeah, that wouldn't fly!
  9. So it's all appropriately priced now? Ha, couldn't help myself! But really, is nobody concerned about the outside seating space of the proposed Overlook space? I mean, they have always had a fair amount of seating all the way to the railing so you can see out into the park...hopefully there are tables outside of the awning area.
  10. Hopefully the outside seating still continues all the way to the railing. It would make no sense to have that tiny seating area and leave the rest open.
  11. Oh haha, yeah that makes sense. I was about to punch some walls if the Richardson garage was to be torn down.
  12. Well I was half kidding...although I couldn't imagine it surviving much longer so not surprised to hear that. Academy would be awesome.
  13. Why would the Richardson Street garage be removed? That would make ZERO sense.
  14. So when will the Kmart close? haha...
  15. Awww, I kinda like that building haha.
  16. My friend was at Roost the first day, but only for drinks. I think he went back last night for dinner so I'll ask him what he thinks about it.
  17. I don't know the answer to this, but most of them I've seen have been women's only. In the one I've been in that had men's I did find a shirt I liked, but it was a small selection...not really worth weaving your way through crowds of teenagers in my opinion! My sisters will be thrilled to hear this though!
  18. My 'hood as well. Living between downtown and Cleveland Park right now but the parents are still over there so I'm around pretty often. It'll be nice to see that stretch of Wade Hampton get a face lift (FINALLY), but I'm most excited about a greenway trail that I assume would connect to the Swamp Rabbit. edit: Of course the greenway is in 'future plans', so I realize it could be a while. Glad the thought is there though
  19. lol, Zumiez...woohoo! That'll bring in the little poser kids. Don't think it'll take anything away from the locals like Blazer and Invert, though. Apart from that it's good to see the mall staying mostly full, and it seems that when a store does close there's always another waiting to jump in.
  20. Not sure if it's just the times or specific days I've been in, but it's never been very busy when I'm there. I realize that it's a small space and a lot of customers likely get their drinks, etc then go, but rarely have I seen it slammed. Again, I'm not in there often so I might just be missing the crowds, but either way I'm just hoping for O-Cha's continued success.
  21. I hope this doesn't hurt O-Cha in any way! It's been up and running for years now and I'd hate to see it go. They have had to move into a smaller space already and it does well enough to stay open, sure, but I don't think they do well enough to compete with another tea place. (at least one that becomes somewhat successful) Hope I'm wrong though.
  22. I know that many, many tourists (and locals, too) will flock to these huge chain restaurants, though I don't understand it. I imagine they're just playing it safe...maybe people even think it's the best food you can eat. When I'm in another city/state/country I always look for local places to try something new that I haven't had before. I've been to a Cheesecake Factory a few times and sure, it's good food, but it isn't anything special. The menu is full of generic options you see on any other chain restaurant menu, except you have a billion different options to choose from and they throw a lo
  23. The Swamp Rabbit runs right between the country club and G Tech...good luck convincing any of the residents there that it would be a good thing to have the trail run through the neighborhood. Last time that was discussed it seems the only ones who spoke up opposed it, apart from Mayor White.
  24. haha, agreed! I wouldn't mind strapping my GoPro to it, though!
