  1. Downtown Winston-Salem Developments

    I read that the Grilled Asparagus fell thru for the old Mary's of Course location.
  2. Triad Business Notes

    Manpower released employment outlook results today and things are looking better in the Triad. Winston-Salem should lead the area metros in job creation with 18% of employers planning to hire while Greensboro/High Point will be in the positive as well with 14%. Burlington is also adding jobs, but many are temporary positions. Manpower believes Winston-Salem to be the 'hot spot' for awhile in job creation in the Triad due to growth in Finance as well as a resurgent mortgage industy. Read the WFMY article here.
  3. The Dash Downtown Ballpark

    Pic I took today from the viewing deck...
  4. Triad Regional Transit

    The Winston-Salem Transit Authority (WSTA) has just acquired 10 new hybrid diesel/electric buses. 10 more are on order, and the plans are to convert the entire fleet of 52 buses. They have the potential to get twice the fuel economy or better of the 14yr old buses they replace. Plus, I like the light green paint job! quality's not great, cell phone pics and late in the day...
  5. A/perture

    Saw a facebook posting that A/perture had their first sell out yesterday for a showing of 'The Last Station.' Crowds were good there last weekend, it's great to see the support and hope it continues!
  6. The Dash Downtown Ballpark

    Drove by the park the other day, the scoreboard was up with Advertiser signs... will try to snap a pic maybe tomorrow.
  7. That picture of Houston is just awful, could you imagine having to walk out all those blocks to your car at night? The sad thing is, if a parking structure is done 'right' with density in mind, you could have ground level offices/retail to cater to all the commuters who travel into downtown. I have seen some done that actually have a decent facade. I wonder what that view of Houston was like before all those surface lots came into being...
  8. A/perture

    Went to A/perture today for the 2:40 showing of 'A Single Man.' Very clean, the seats were comfortable, refreshments were actually 'reasonable' compared to mainline theaters. I think we are actually going to go back next weekend for 'The Last Station.' A great addition to downtown Winston-Salem! In a plug for the movie, here is a link to it's website.
  9. Downtown Winston-Salem Developments

    I would like to see this happen, but on the heels of the baseball stadium debacle and the current state of the economy I just can't see this passing.
  10. Triad Off-Topic

    For those of you who have lived in the Triad for awhile, you should remember Frank Deal from WGHP news. He was the weather forecaster for the station and was immensely liked by the viewing public. He passed away today at the age of 84. FOX8 Story on Frank Deal's Passing
  11. Triad Off-Topic

    And while Fantasia is quite talented, she certainly carries very little love for High Point or the Triad... IMO
  12. Thruway Shopping Center

    Not sure what would fit. Moe's is already in Thruway and Panera's around the corner (kinda) at Cloverdale Shopping Center...
  13. Downtown Winston-Salem Developments

    The USPS has removed the downtown Winston-Salem post office from the list of locations under consideration for closing. Locations in Greensboro and High Point still remain on the list. FOX8 article about downtown W-S PO
  14. Charlotte Pride

    The Atlanta Eagle is more of a levi/leather kinda place. Have been there several times and will say the raid was probably warranted, the treatment of the customers by the APD not. There are Eagles all over the country... Dallas, Washington, Los Angeles, New York, etc. They all have individual ownership, to my knowledge. I'm not sure if there is any governance over the 'Eagle' name.
  15. Charlotte Pride

    I talked some more with my friend last night, they were trying to negotiate the lease down (around $5K a month) with no success. Also, business had been off quite a bit over the last year. The combination of the two killed the bar. I liked the Eagle, and tried to get there about once a month or so, but I think they would have done better not to have charged the high cover charges for non-members. It's a shame, they just had their 8th anniversary party Sunday night.
