    I went to a Mariano's when I traveled to Bensenville, IL to visit some family and that place is awesome. It is a recent acquisition by Kroger through their purchase of Roundys (Side note, Kroger owns a Lot of supermarket brands). Would love one of those down here. (https://www.marianos.com/)

    Yeah, in the northeast you would have tiers of food store depending on need/laziness. Wegmans was for fancy parties, Stop & Shop/Shoprite was for weekly needs, A&P/IGA/pathmark was when you were driving home, forgot something for dinner that night, and it was on the way. I for one hate the Publix virtual Monopoly and shop at WD when i can. Can't wait for Lucky's to open up.

    Peeked in Hourglass Brewery a few days back. Looks like they have at least a couple of months of work left. place is gutted with only a drainage ditch cut out of the slab, no fixtures or plumbing.

    I like that "competing with stasio's" is now a thing

    I was in Dallas about a month ago and the scooters were strewn everywhere. Not saying that will necessarily be the case here.

    F&D wood fire Kitchen now open What I am enthusiastic about is that this and Cafe Madrid bring what the hourglass district was severely missing: Bottomless Mimosa and Sangria Brunch. Additionally, the menu looks great and really high end. great addition to the area.

    Artegon's new owner is in violation of a bunch of city ordinances with the "museum" they have created in the old mall https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/11/12/new-auto-museum-at-artegon-marketplace-is-illegal-draws-city-fines

    Hourglass Brewery has their sign up on the old church next to the Peaceful Peacock. Looks like they are doing some landscaping work to the outside as well. Also found an article in the Sentinel mentioning the plan is for it to be open by the end of the year. (it is also a really interesting article about making it as a microbrewery) https://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/consumer/os-bz-orlando-breweries-20181031-story.html#

    Just to clarify, if a cities history doesn’t equate to the level of being part of the founding of the country, it’s history is unimportant?

    Foxtail and Leguminati are in soft opening currently. looks awesome inside. They are calling it the Hourglass Social House and has a pseudo GB's Bottle shop vibe.
