    what is under the siding?
  2. Our neighborhood voted it down when it came up. The pricing and system for extra cars is restrictive. If you have visitors or a babysitter, you run out of extra permits real fast. In the case of houses that have no garage or driveway parking there are no credits so some neighbors pay more and some don't.

    Im not a huge fan of the flat sidewalk frontage. I would be so much better with some offset variation that made it feel a bit more broken up.

    They are very different "Markets" One is a grocery store the other is a mini-mall of shops. Most vendors in the Downtown Market sell ready to eat, take home type food. I don't think they compete really at all. Maybe for fish?
  5. I have also noticed a reduction in the posting of Parking enforcement times. Each meter used to have stickers that would indicate when parking is enforced. Many no longer have this. Also the Kiosk systems do not have this posted either. Take a look, am I wrong? Seems like another way to get parkers to pay when they don't have to.

    Patio is nice, but because of sun can be hit or miss. Late sun warms the place up. They usually close down the garage doors and throw on the AC but it takes a while to chill down. It will be a better space in the spring and fall as temps drop. One thing I have noticed is that they have not been opening up all the seating. They usually close off the outdoor picnic tables during the dinner rush. They are also slow to fill open large tables in the new section. They have closed the "upper room" section and do not seem to be seating anyone there (used to be our favorite spot). I am guessing they are having staffing issues, and that is one reason for not opening up all seating. They have started to test pizza and beer delivery from their new back kitchen. Overall its still a great spot, they just need to break in the new shoes.
