A drive-through coffeeshop called "7 Brew" is coming to where China Wok Express currently is. Guessing the former Tinsley's/Golden Chick/whatever building will be gone within months.

I noticed what I think is new silt fence around the little square next to Olive Garden, that was supposed to be a putt putt place at one point. Not sure how they put in an entertainment spot, and parking places in that little area. I doubt they're allowed to share spaces with HD, OG, or the hotel there.

But I could be wrong, maybe the silt fencing has been there.

This area could use a drive-thru coffee shop.

There is a drive-thru Starbucks across the street from that spot.

At this point, I think they'll need crews working there every day until then to have any chance of that.
With the fire limited to the back of the kitchen entrance and smoke damage, I bet they could open in a month if they wanted to.

A potential new indoor tennis facility for A&M and the City of Bryan to share at Midtown Park is in discussion.

Quote:

The city of Bryan and Texas A&M are negotiating another major addition to Midtown Park.

Mayor Bobby Gutierrez says a shared indoor tennis facility, which was first brought up during the original design of the Legends Event Center, has the support the A&M system board of regents.

Gutierrez says in addition to providing Bryan residents another location to play tennis, this will give A&M the ability to host S-E-C and NCAA tournaments.

Gutierrez says negotiations include how operations and maintenance costs will be shared.

That's awesome. Aggie golf and tennis played in Bryan.
Aggie sports were played in the City of Bryan area for about 50 years....we are going full circle.

There's likely smoke damage throughout. It's not going to be as quick as just rebuild what burned. I meant to come update this though.

Yeah, I can see that a huge part of the problem is the fire damage means that they can be no longer grandfathered in and have to bring everything up to standards, including (I imagine) paved parking lots. I'm not sure if Bryan has that ordinance but College Station does.

Frankly I'm surprised that even a single thing has been done at all given the radio silence.

You guys kidding about Carinos coming back? I'd actually LOVE that. I ate there regularly until the end.

I feel like staffing issues combined with the drastic increase in prices did them in. To me , the food was still pretty good and pretty consistent. It also had more kid friendly dishes than other Italian restaurants locally.

Frittella reopening, not Carino's.

Sorry if already mentioned, but what's going on at the other side of the Academy parking lot? Dirt work and construction fence going up yesterday. Can't be a bank since there's another one on the other side of the parking lot. Right??

I think it's Lone Star Southern Grill from Brenham. I'm excited about walking from church to grab a couple tall beers.

Barrel storage facility for the Hush & Whisper Distillery (which is apparently coming soon to downtown Bryan).

I think with that place sitting completely closed up for over a year, the best thing to do would be to knock it down and start over...and I think we all know that's exactly what they won't do. You'll never get the fire smell out of that place.

Final putt on 18 is into the clown's mouth at the lift station.

Or maybe the fire smell just adds to the atmosphere. Maybe put some BBQ on the menu.

Not sure this has been noted, but Urban Optics is moving into a new building being built where the Silk Stocking once stood.

Fitting. The message is, "If you came here looking for the Silk Stocking, you need an eye exam."

Thank goodness! This place has been an eyesore since the very beginning. It was always out of place …and it's just continued to go downhill more, and more, in the last 20 years.
