Forgive me, but life got a bit chaotic this past week.
So what can I share with you today?
First order of business: the spammers are going nuts right now. Today I logged 130 messages caught up in the filter. I’ve done my best to rescue anything that shouldn’t be killed. But if you have posted a message and you’re not seeing it, contact me and I’ll work with you to get back on the site.
Work is proceeding on Hideaway Pizza along Automobile Alley. I’ve had a blast helping them obtain historic photos of Broadway that they plan on displaying in the restaurant. Those of you who know me know I love seeing area businesses take pride in our history and sharing it with customers.
Believe it or not, work is also still proceeding on Sammy’s Pizza along the Bricktown Canal. I’m not sure if they are challenging Larado’s Mexican Restaurant at Classen and NW Expressway (now known as Casa De Los Milagros) for marathon construction schedules, but obviously it’s gone a lot slower than they intended and a spring 2010 opening is now looking like a spring 2011 opening.
Sad news about Maker’s Cigar Lounge being auctioned off last week. It was a first class operation, a genuine asset for Bricktown, and it lasted for one great decade. Blame the economy, the weather and an early expansion upstairs.
Tracking a lot of different moving pieces with MAPS 3 relating to downtown. In the middle of this we await results from Tuesday’s city council election, in which challengers in Ward 8 and Ward 6 have made it clear they are no fans of MAPS.
I’ll try to have a couple more substantial posts the next couple of days. Surely things will slow down soon.
