  1. CFS Coffee has opened their DTO location on Church Street (apparently with an updated name). I stopped into their Hannibal Square location a few times and was always impressed by the service and quality of the coffee. Is this where the Flame Broiler used to be? https://bungalower.com/2018/10/03/cafe-frutos-selectos-now-open-on-church-street/

    Sorry to hear about Muddy. I had some good meals there, and they had my favorite cocktail in the city.

    Ugh. That is all.

    For me, SoDo is further than the (eventual) Colonial location. It’s also really convenient to get into Colonial Landing since you don’t have to get on Colonial thanks to the Maguire entrance. Also: BEER. [emoji482]

    Egads ... no mention of the Colonial Town Center location’s opening date. Do I start fretting now or wait???

    I can second (fourth?) the love for El Buda. Definitely a hidden gem among CBD restaurants.

    Are the apartments at OFS ever happening?

    Side note: these “community connections” things from the Sentinel are maddening. As they’re essentially blog posts by non-journalists, it’s so frustrating they’re placed in the breaking & local news sections. The amateurish writing style is so off putting when one is expecting a real story. That said, there is indeed no magic bullet. I just use fabric when I remember to, reuse plastic for trash can liners and the cat’s litter, and recycle the rest at Publix since they can’t go in single stream.

    How long has Brinkmann been over at the Weekly? That’s new for me, but glad to hear he hasn’t left the area.

    I guess the developers will have to, as they say, PIVOT accordingly. [emoji58]

    Re: Bob Carr, am I remembering correctly that it’s not possible to restore the exterior to what it was originally due to the 70s/80s remodel work being so extensive? That’d be awesome but I feel like at some point I read that option was well off the table.

    Too bad they couldn’t help define the neighborhood by using its official name, i.e. Camden South Eola. But I’m sure “Lake Eola” is a much better marketing hook to rent apartments.
