Anchor Bar closed its San Marcos location after just 1 year. Wonder if they still plan to open here.

A little more info on the Aplin center that is being planned for Wellborn and Kimbrough - across from the TAMU Hotel.

Quote:

Texas A&M has selected key partners to advance toward a fall groundbreaking for the Aplin Center. Supported by a $50 million gift from former student Arch "Beaver" Aplin III, owner of Buc-ee's, the academic center will serve as an immersive learning laboratory for students.

Houston-based Hines has been selected as the development manager to facilitate the T3 project. T3 is Hines' new generation of heavy timber buildings focused on innovation, wellness and sustainability. Pickard Chilton and DLR Group, two premier architectural design firms known for their innovative ideas, will lead the design of the state-of-the-art facility. Design Workshop, a landscape architecture firm, will transform the surrounding eight acres at the corner of Wellborn Road and John Kimbrough Boulevard into an inviting green space. The university will break ground in the fall.

...

The Aplin Center will offer a transformational student experience through new university programs in hospitality, retail studies and food product development involving innovative degree programs including viticulture, fermentation processes, coffee and food science. Product development laboratories and food tasting areas will offer collaboration with industry and experiential learning opportunities for students.
...

The Aplin Center will include outdoor and indoor student recreational space, as well as retail and food service areas managed by students and faculty through the educational programs.

The project will host corporate training and recruiting programs, along with professional development opportunities. Workforce training based on industry needs will be a key component of the center. Texas A&M is already exploring potential collaboration with industry for internship opportunities as students advance through the programs offered at the Aplin Center.

According to their social media:


Quote:

"FREAKY TIKI" is the most colorful inviting space on Northgate that boast the BEST frozen adult beverages in town not to mention a really cozy social vibe.


Appears to be a Dallis brothers project.

Good idea.

Are there any new restaurants planning to move to the West Villa Maria/2818 area near the Walmart? I know there is a Dutch Brothers going in but there looks to be other areas that are staked out.

The university was looking to turn the old Macy's location into an E sports facility, I don't think it's a good move personally, because it would only cater to a couple of demographics versus a retail business that would cater to most if not all (Dicks Sporting Goods?). I really hope they reconsidered that location.

True or false:

The university is good at reversing questionable decisions and admitting mistakes.

Or go with e-sports and get the Dude Perfect guys involved and turn it into some kind of tourist attraction

Probably to help make room for the redevelopment that is coming to that area.

Might have to go back with my husband before it closes. That's where we met.

Coworker who goes there regularly told me. Perhaps he misunderstood, but calls to them today have gone unanswered so I'm inclined to believe him.

See my edit. They are in China. When we talked to them, they were hoping it would be about a month.

Wishing their customers a happy life doesn't exactly instill confidence in their reopening.

Have you talked to them? They wish me a happy life when they know they will see me in a week. It's a translation issue.
