I miss the ‘60’s when all the neon signs made Colonial Drive look like a miniature version of the Vegas strip. My favorite was the Western Way sign where the cowboy threw his lasso. 

Then the ‘70’s came and we got boring, mansard roofed Mickey D’s in brown and beige. Maybe Mrs. Bucket loved it but I didn’t...

Oh wow - tomorrow? Last Friday it looked like there was a lot of work to be done (it looked pretty much like the photos on Bungalower). Guess they worked overdrive on the weekend. I'll walk past it after work today.

I drove by DGX today and didn't realize they already had the signage up on Rosalind. Also, mid day today they had the sidewalk lined with boxes and cartons of product... I assume that is stock going in, which make me think they are shooting for month end open.

You called it.

Ummm...it’s not opening tomorrow. There’s still construction going on inside, nothing is on the shelves, etc. I can see it opening in about a week but that wouldn’t even give time for employees to come in and get used to the store.

All these "Star Track" (that's what I thought it was called when I was a kid in the 60's) references are over my head.

Never saw any of the later versions after the original cast and crew.

We’ll make a Trekkie of you yet! Assuming, of course, as Shatner suggested at a Trek convention, that you have no life... ;-)

On the other hand, ignorance is bliss, as the saying goes. :thumbsup:

Someone suggested a while back just how awful downtown Orlando was in response to the DGX opening. This story in the Sentinel notes the first DGX opened in Nashville in 2016 so I guess the Music City has a lousy downtown, too. Personally, I think that puts us in pretty good company.

The DGX store is now open.

I went in today. They're still stocking some stuff on shelves. It's nice. I hope it stays nice. Had some well priced items as well. Soda and Energy Drinks were a good $1 cheaper than 7-Eleven.
