A group of us went there for lunch a little while back & none of us were disappointed. As a matter of fact, everyone is the group said we needed to come back & try something different.

I hope the Zoo president & board members read this feed. First, not ALL zoo members received the letter saying "they have listened to their members and..." NO!!!! You have not. You have already taken over the Greensward. The spot where children would play soccer, young adults play frisbee football, families would picnic, people would walk their dogs, etc. The ZOO has continuously blocked this portion of the Greensward every single day since the city said it is your property BUT the ZOO said they only use that part for approximately 60 days out of the year. Hey zoo!!! You have blocked it for more than 60 days. If this was so true, why don't you leave it open on the days you KNOW you don't need it. Second, NOW the ZOO wants to take over the running & walking area? This is a place where there is active pedestrian traffic. So, let's not make this convenient for those that live around the ZOO & use the park. NO!! Let's make it convenient for only those that want to visit the zoo. Third, the city gave the ZOO a lane off North Parkway to use for parking. I thought it was a dumb idea to begin with, but whatever... the city was trying to help. Only one problem. Only people that use this for parking are city employees working on a sidewalk or lines, etc. So, let's get back to what would resolved this issue once & for all. A good compromise for everyone. BUILD a GARAGE!!! Every other zoo in America has one. Need funds for it? Well, what did you do with the funds you accumulated from those you allowed to park on the Greensward all these years? HEY here is another idea... Freaking redraw the parking lot & you will have additional parking. Look two GREAT options that would make the ZOO & Memphians happy. ZOO you say you want compromise, well do just that. You have to GIVE not just TAKE.
If the trees were planted three years ago & didn't cause an issue, then why on earth would anyone decide to dig them up?
Also, the park takes care of the property. I don't see any zoo employees picking up trash or cutting the grass. Yet, I do see the zoo taking the money for it. If you want a compromise, then do exactly that. Reimburse the OPC a portion of the parking money to help with the upkeep.
What you did was ethically wrong & believe in your heart you know it. Do what is right for the community & not what is right just for the zoo.
I am addicted to this show.
Don't we have bigger fish to fry in this city than to worry about a dead man that is not doing anyone any harm right now? If you don't like the statue, go to another park. We have several nice ones.
Made my first visit there this weekend. The beet salad & trout were excellent. Can't wait to go back for the sprouts & pork shank.
I have a mix feeling. Several articles complimented the meatballs & came highly recommended. Let's just say, they weren't anything to write home about. I prefer my meatballs to be a bit firmer & not fall apart when you cut into them. But, this is just my taste. We have angle hair pasta & thought it was tasty. Will definitely be going back to try another dish.
