  1. Hopefully the new development next to the RR tracks covers that view. Hideous. Just Hideous. Plaza Midwood deserves some sort of art installation or mural on the Dairy Queen side. Snug Harbor's new mural is really well done, why not hire that guy?
  2. Sorry, I meant Thomas Ave:) The NOOK seriously makes me sick. How do we get a mural or anything for that matter done to mask some of the ugly?
  3. This is my favorite view (from the Thomas St intersection). It looks like a medieval prison doing it's best to hide the skyline from Plaza Midwoodians. Not sure that image was attached properly. What's the easiest way to drop in a JPEG?
  4. I'm very excited about the place, and love what they're doing, but I also think they missed a great opportunity to open up that massive brick wall facing Zada's and put some big windows in. Thomas St and Zada Jane's seems like the perfect setting to take in while grabbing a drink. Bakersfield and Little Spoon seem to have nailed it when it comes to bringing the outside in, I just wish that little stretch of Central Ave could become more like that.
  5. Nothing against Firehouse Subs, but I'm a bit disappointed. The building seems far too nice for a chain sandwich place. Hopefully they have a good beer list, with a patio like that.
  6. That's it, I'm going to finally try Beef n Bottle. Lived here for 7 years, I guess it's about time. Does anyone know what is going on with the newly renovated building at 1500 E 3rd Street? It looks to have a great patio with an outdoor fireplace. I'm assuming it's going to be a restaurant but can't find any info.
  7. Ha. high rise prison. How about four story crack house? The Plaza Midwood facing facade already has a giant mural on it...if you look closely it's a big middle finger.
  8. Wow, nice looking place. What a shame that we ended up with a high-rise prison next to Dairy Queen while an attractive, well built structure like this will be tucked back on Commonwealth.
  9. So I'm digging all the new beer loving restaurants coming to Plaza Midwood (Pizza Peel and Central Pint), but I just don't understand how Central Ave between Pecan and Thomas has avoided all these new developments? Other than 22 and Soul, which are relatively new and successful, and Novas which seems busy, I have no idea how some of those businesses make enough money to keep their doors open. I guess I'm curious to hear what people think of that strip on Central Ave between Pecan and Thomas.

  11. Anyone know where Free Range Brewing is going to be located in Plaza Midwood?
  12. Does anyone have more detail on Pizza Peel's plans? Renovate or Rebuild? With a LOT of work, that old gas station could be a killer restaurant with generous outdoor seating.
  13. Totally agree on the sub-terranean parking deck idea. Savannah's City Market is the perfect example. The buried a multi level (hideous) parking garage and it made a huge difference.
  14. Anyone know what is going to happen to the Kelly Tire lot accross from Zada Janes? Big sign out front says they're moving. Really hoping for a cool new restaurant. Has anyone heard where Free Range Brewing might land in Plaza Midwood? The old Brodt Music building sure would be a nice location.
