Not surprised in the least. I was one of the first customers at the grand opening. Was an FLO, unfortunately.


FLO?

I'm more interested in WHO bought the So-Fly. I assume a chain, but I can't think of any candidates that would consider that drive through to be adequate AND have enough money to want to buy out an operational business AND, if it is new to the market, choose that particular building instead of a new build.

I don't think making them on certain days only is the answer as they seem to often be an impulsive indulgence. I see that only irritating some people.

If BCS with 250,000 people can't muster up 24 tarts at each mojo daily then the tarts aren't as popular as everyone thinks they are. Numbers always tell the story, so we will see.



Yes, I thought of that, as well. It's annoying to go get something, and they don't have it.

I remember a time when I would go to Cafe Eccel and order a tart for dessert as soon as I sat down to make sure you didn't run out. That was LONG ago.

I listened to part of the City of College Station economic development podcast and it was mentioned that there is exciting development coming to the old Albertsons. They said they couldn't announce the name of the tenants (plural) yet. I am interested to see how that redevelops.
I caught this on the city's YouTube channel. They gave more attention to SH6 at Fitch than expected making me think there might be some interesting deals underway beyond the fancy gas station. Of course, it could just be some wishful thinking/hoping as well.

Go check it out. I'm confident many will be unkind to their discussion on Nothgate #NorthBait.

Have you had one of the tarts? You won't be making that angry face if you do.


I would rather have the recipe for The Rosie.

Where did you get this info from? I don't even see that HEB owns land out there. I've heard that HEB was looking at University and Boonville for some time now, so I want to believe!

City of Bryan donated land to Brazos Transit District to build a parking garage to service Midtown Park. The Transit District is apparently applying for a grant to help with costs. If it happens, the parking garage would have retail and restaurant space on the ground level and potentially space for a hotel.

Painting with a Twist announced on their Instagram account that they're closing. Last day of business will be Feb 25.


They announced on Facebook today that they sold to a new franchisee who is going to remodel and reopen the location in April.

Press X to doubt.

Someone's not telling the truth here.

Agreed. New HEB stores usually come with lots of fanfare, press releases, etc. HEB doesn't appear to own any land out that way and there has been no announcement regarding a new store. I'm extremely skeptical. Hopefully I am wrong though!

If not true, will be a letdown on the same scale as Pappadeux's.

Pappadeaux had plans and filings and discussions. Some "Source: my ass" style rumor is not remotely the same thing. Besides...it's just an H-E-B, nothing to get excited over.

Prepare to be let down. Nothing on COB planning and zoning meetings about it.

Wife works for HEB. In their all company planning meeting last week they did not list any BCS stores planned for the next 18 months. Things can change though, but i wouldn't hold on to hope for anything soon.
