  1. Haven't been to the Westside in a while so hopped on google maps for a street tour and came upon this from July 2017. Curious what they could have been meeting about. Any ideas? https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1494743,-84.5990877,3a,75y,250.79h,76.66t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s0U1jPnCakjaOceAQ29FnBw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  2. Yes, but suburbanites (incorrectly) think that they have 100% control over their car and can avoid accidents. The fear of seemingly uncontrollable things like thugs who are going to punch you is not as easy to shrug off.
  3. Wrote my response as you were posting yours...great mind think alike!
  4. Yeah, what a disaster. The media is going berserk with this, and it would be in hyperdrive if not for the continuing bizarreness of the Brogan Dulli suicide/conspiracy theories. Still, people need to get out of this mindset that getting your car broken into or getting punched and having your wallet or phone stolen is a big deal. It's not. Say you get your glasses broken, have a filling knocked out, and have to get your bicycle repaired (that all happened to me in one incident), and the total bill is $600 (about what that event cost me). You're going to make over $1 million in your life, and you're going to be perfectly healthy and pain-free for thousands and thousands of days, so why the hell do you care about such an insignificant expense and disruption to your life? I'm all about going downtown, spending money downtown...everything this site supports. However, I think being punched in the face and having my stuff stolen is a big deal. I've never had it happen to me and I never want it to. I really don't think downplaying violence is going to make people want to come downtown...
  5. I wish Dewey's would move down there but maybe the Newport on the Levee location is too close? Although Tom and Chee has one in Newport and on Walnut so that's not much farther.
  6. This would be horrible...why does Walgreen's insist on doing this throughout the country? The only things I've ever seen move into empty drug stores are those temporary Halloween USA/Christmas stores and Dollar Stores. Who do we need to contact to help stop this?
