Does anyone know who's behind the new dance hall? Or can help me figure out?


My bet is the former Ninfa's owner!

Maybe that will be the death of Post Oak mall. Malls are becoming obsolete unless it's a Galleria type mall.

I would love to see the mall be knocked down and a new development of restaurants and stores replace it.
I would say that it's just a problem with retail as a whole that has built up over the years and the specific problems with Post Oak Mall, like way higher rent than the rest of town but still can't build up a good store base, with a lot of vacancies and one-off stores that always seem empty.

Having a dance hall that's walled off from the rest of the center, instead of, say, a restaurant, isn't helping matters much.

Remember when the bio-corridor was supposed to bring in billions of dollars from contracts?

I think RELLIS is becoming what the two cities envisioned the the Bio-Corridor to be. With that said, I don't this the Bio-Corridor is a failure. If you ride threw there there is a new office development going up and the Health Science Center is still growing. I think more could be added to the retail area around the Stella Hotel. It's a really nice area, just needs more to walkable development and reason for people to come to the area.

In other news, it looks like a 4 story hotel is being planned across the freeway from Premiere Cinema and Kroger. I believe it's a Comfort Inn & Suites.

And C&J BBQ seems to be moving forward with a new location on William J Bryan next to Aggieland Credit Union.

You have to be patient...Traditions is just now transitioning from a CoB tax $$ consumer, to a tax $$ producer. Another few years, and it will be in the black!

Latest word on Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que from their Facebook page is that they're hoping for the end of October. A friend who's judgement I trust said he had it in Austin and he didn't like it (something about them using vinegar on their ribs). I'm still going to find out for myself.


iPho will have a soft opening from 10/28-11/10. Friend of a friend claims the owner is a good cook but I don't know how well that translates to cooking for a restaurant.

I was referring to the $1B in research contracts we were supposedly going to get that never materialized.

There was the $300 million Center of Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing out there off HSC Parkway so I guess Sharp is still out $700 million on that promise.

It looks like further development of that area is what the goal of this transaction is.

Welp. That's the end of me. I could eat their Louisiana Dry Rub wings all day. If they open a Fuego there I'll never have to go north of 2818 again

I haven't looked to see if our local menu is posted yet, but the menu varies at each location from what I understand, to pick up the local flavors/flair. And that the coffee cups are different to make them collectible. I ate at the one in Nashville and it was so good.

A new Drew's Carwash is going in across the street from Carter's Burger on Texas Avenue in Bryan.

Fajita Pete's is open today.

They're doing a "soft opening" with a Grand Opening coming in a month or two. They gave me free samples of their frozen margarita and chips/salsa.

I was impressed. Better than I was anticipating for a chain place that will probably do the majority of their business carryout/delivery/catering.

On Univeristy between Church and Nagle under what I think is an apartment complex. Same complex that CVS is in.

I parked at the coffee shop next door, but the owner told me they had designated parking spots for customers in the garage (even though there's a sign on the entrance of the garage indicating a permit is required).

It would be nice to know where you can park in this area. I want to try Which Wich, but don't know where to park where I won't be towed.

Exactly...... and why I just don't go try any of them. I'm sure they don't miss my money, and I'm doing fine not missing their food. To be fair, I'm certain my demographic isn't their market. I'm just not spending any time driving in circles trying to find designated parking or willing to worry if I parked in the right space.

Yes, I know in particular Fajita Pete's is anticipating the vast majority of their business will be student foot traffic and delivery.
