Not that I claim to know anything, but looks like 700 address is the building that houses Wingstop. Maybe in the old Blake's steaks or genghis grill spot?

I need Snooze to happen!!

You may want to check the reviews out online before going there.


Online reviews have lost their luster since The Oracle left town, and was subsequently deplatformed from his kingdom.

Apparently someone got a fingernail in their drink at dutch bros and they included a pic. I was reading the reviews to see what their menu was.

We should try to petition Belk to take the place of Macy's. I really hate to see Post Oak Mall go down like that. Or Dillards could move into the space and combine both of its other stores and their old spaces can be redeveloped.

How much longer can JC Penny last?

Belk is close to going bankrupt. I would love to see Belk open here, but it is not happening.

Isn't Belk just a Kohls with a coat of paint on it? Same products...same discounts...same crappy "cash" coupons program?

Maybe that will help cut the freaking line down at that place. Some people don't have the time to wait 40 minutes to get a freaking drink.

It looks like Snooze is still happening, and Toasted Yolk is going into the old Genghis Grill restaurant.

What is going in the old Jack in the Box building by the CS Kroger? Saw work being done there a couple of months ago, and today they are back. Looks like the dining area was gutted inside.

Toasted Yolk will kill it. So much better than the other similar type places.

I finally got around to visiting the new Popeye's on Sunday for lunch. I got in the drive through line, it was about 4 cars to the menu board. I got to the menu board and they had a sign posted on it that drive through is cash only and no change made but for some reason they can take credit cards inside. Per my normal behavior I had zero cash on me so I went and parked to go in and order to go.

So I walk up to the door and there is a sign up there that only 5 people can be inside at a time and to wait outside until an employee tells you to come in. I get in line behind a few other people and wait.. about 15 minutes later another customer comes out with her food and goes to her car, then promptly stomps back in because the order was wrong.

The next customer comes and out and lets me know to go in and order because the roughly 10 other people waiting around are waiting on their food and/or orders were wrong.

I finally go in an order (about 20 minutes so far). I actually get my food quickly and it was very good! I had the fish sandwich with red beans & rice and chocolate filled beignets for dessert.

Anyway I just figured I would share my most Popeye's experience ever!

Snooze recently pulled permits.

Fujifilm recently pulled permits for another building, the Nexus Warehouse

Insomnia Cookies pulled sign permits recently for the building next to the Aggieland Credit Union building. I've had them in Baton Rouge and Tempe, they're very similar to Tiff's Treats and are really good! They have locations in college towns and big cities.

EDIT: Biotech company Matica Biotechnology broke ground on an office in College Station at Providence Park. Should eventually bring 100 jobs.

Is this nexus warehouse behind their original building? When you pass by there from 60 you can see their 2nd new building obviously across the street but I have been trying to figure out what is going on directly behind their original building. I'm assuming if they are just now pulling permits they couldn't have already been working on this building.

The Village in DtB made this announcement
Quote:

She was also excited to announce a new addition, as she purchased the building next door and is planning to open a new wine bar in June 2021 that celebrates art and the Bohemian lifestyle.

"I'm going to call it 'Vino Boheme,'" Petty said. "The Village is about community and supporting local art. The wine bar is going to be a celebration of art and the counterculture artists that have led us to where we are today. For me, it's The Village by night."

Is Zoners reopening or is a new business moving in? I was at Blue Fin for lunch and noticed a sign in the Zoners window that said "grand opening March 1 tentatively" or something along those lines.

I can't remember if I ever mentioned it, but there is a new kids play place in the Bryan Target Center called Smarty Sprouts Kids' Club.

" Smarty Sprouts Kids' Club is a new indoor playground and recreation facility in the Bryan-College Station area. Smarty Sprouts Kids' Club."

We've taken our kids several times to Smarty Sprouts. They had a fun time. You can book time in 2hr increments.

I have come to the conclusion that Popeyes restaurants are basically a social experiment where they are serving delicious food with the worst possible service in order to study how much the American consumer will put up with.
