Tony, you're also right. In fact there was a local healer who worked out of my house long before I bought it.
I think we are on the same page. And I do think the attempt to block the drive through is an attempt to discourage fast food at that location.
It will be interesting to see what happens from here. If the drive through is isn't allowed, would McDonalds make money in that location?
hmm, it sounds to me like he is forgoing the chef and focusing on beer without food. It's all up there in the article.
But don't you think they should have the ability to block a special permit from the city?
I own property and I'm confident that I could not add a commercial business to my house just because I own the land. It's my understanding that the owner could put a restaurant there, but that the issue at had was a drive through (at least from a legal perspective).
Judging by recent debates, it seems McDonald's has the edge on size and organization of opposition groups.
Seriously? I know Mr. Burg pretty well and he is one of the most connected and active neighbors in the grid. I'm really happy he posts both comments and full articles here.
The whole point of this site is to add another layer of depth to conversations we neighbors do have in real life and allow more people to discuss and debate important issues like this. Many of us are committed to this community in real life and on this digital platforms.
I'm stoked. I ride light rail to work often and I enjoy it. I like it much better than San Jose's light rail, but otherwise haven't ridden other systems in a while.
Of course, I am a civic cheerleader and everyone knows it.
This was the predicted fall-out of the "split" system introduced earlier. It makes me want to see each and every email by city staff about this plan. It seems to me that the city wanted to get rid of the claw so they deliberately set up an opt-out system for the new bins where it would be economically silly to still run the claw. Never underestimate the power of the "default" option (just ask facebook).
There is no getting around the fact that our region has been shedding jobs for 54 straight months. Our economic stability relied upon government jobs that have disappeared and our service and lesiure industry has suffered.
While I am sad about this change, I think when a business owner makes a change like this it is because she loves her business and wants to take the right steps to save it. This is not a failure, but a pivot to a more successful model. I hope she runs with that success and builds a larger business in the future. This is the kind of determination, followed by execution, that often precedes success.
I'm up for both locations. Lighting can be more than functional, it can help define the intended usage of space.
It takes a lot of work to be in business for 10 years—especially in the restaurant industry. I think it's fair to say that they are serving their customers' needs quite well. And that is worth celebrating!
As for your personal take on their food and service? Hey, everyone has an opinion and you're certainly entitled to spend your hard earned cash at places you love. I know I do.
I think that is an invitation to write another story.
Plus, we tend to cover new businesses with interesting angles even if the category is well represented- like bars and restaurants on the grid.
I just wish sales taxes weren't so regressive.
Brilliant and awesome.
No crack on you. Just loved the quote.
I think we buried the lead here. “I want them, if it hasn’t already happened, to sit in a smoky back room with papers and figures and say, ‘We really fucked this thing up.’ ” - That's awesome, honest and exactly what I'd want to hear from Dave.
I've been following this guy from back when he was a regular poster on The Bleacher Mob.
And when you park downtown, perhaps you might use one of many public parking garages?
Awesome headline writing there.
I agree with both Laura and William here. It is a sort of twisted love story—but I'm all tangled up.
