    Shreveport's new aquarium

    I just realized I haven't been here in a while now. Just checking in, I went to the aquarium during its grand opening weekend and it is VERY nice for a small aquarium. Takes at least a half hour to go through and see everything, so there is plenty to see. You can touch starfish, rays, and other creatures, and you can watch sharks swimming overhead as you walk through the tunnel. I hope everyone gets a chance to check it out and enjoy it as much as I did.
  2. Finally. Only took forever. Lyft is now operating in Shreveport, but Uber still isn't.

    A look inside Shreveport Aquarium...

    SALT, the restaurant inside the aquarium, is now open. The aquarium has set a Nov. 1 opening.
  5. So, it looks like we have a chance at getting ride-sharing services now that the council has changed their restrictive ordinances. I wasn't aware of these ordinances, but apparently that is what has been keeping Uber and Lyft out of the area here. Still, this is an example of poor leadership on the part of the city for creating such restrictions in the first place. Just more reasons for businesses to not enter this city. So, will Uber and Lyft finally be here soon, when they should have already been here for quite some time now? We'll see...

    And here's an aloft hotel I designed and placed on a couple of empty downtown lots not far from the convention center and a block from Larry Flynt's club.

    Another image of it... this time placed into an image of downtown Shreveport... I think it would look good on Commerce Street by the riverfront.

    Richy, I've since made some changes to my mixed-use building concept... here's the latest design. I even gave it a name and made a logo for it.

    Thanks Richy. Uptown in Shreveport is a small area south of the South Highlands area, just a couple miles down Line Avenue from downtown. There's a small, old indoor mall there called Pierremont Mall, and across the street is a shopping area called Uptown Center. I'd like to see something like that either downtown or uptown. Would be nice!

    Another of my creations. This hotel would be located right behind the Hilton at the convention center, with views of downtown and Cross Bayou.
  12. Once again, we see that Shreveport is the laughing stock of the state. Two much smaller metro areas recently saw the start-up of Uber in their areas: Texarkana AR/TX and Monroe-West Monroe. Shreveport has just under 200,000 people. Even Bossier City on its own is larger than Texarkana and Monroe. The Shreveport-Bossier metro area has over 400,000 people. Yet here we are in Shreveport-Bossier with no ride-sharing companies operating here. What a joke we've become. I hate to say it, but things like this, which may seem really small to some people - but aren't to me - make me wish I lived almost anywhere else but here. Local taxi companies think it will cut into their business. I don't know about anyone else here, but while I would consider an Uber ride, I never have and hopefully never will ride in any of the nasty things they call taxis here. That's not lost taxi business because of Uber, it's lost taxi business because I've seen our local taxis and... no thank you!
