Go outside to breathe the fresh air if you don't like the smoke. Smokers have been pushed out of the bus and off the planes and into the elements long enough! It's for 21 and over so be an adult and pick your poison-either join us or go to the other 99% of the restaurants in town where we're NOT welcome and you are.
Urban Outfitters did a GREAT job with the building at Cooper/Central. They removed the "updated" plaster that was on the building when the antique mall occupied the space and brought it back to the original brick exterior. They also exposed inner, wood, walls on the interior making that also look better than it has in years. Urban Outfitters and Chic Fil A are both great examples of how we can move forward and be pro-business while maintaining the integrity of midtown. Maybe there should be a zip code check at any future hearings, protests, etc...If you don't live in midtown then you should keep your opinion, and by that I mean your flattened, treeless (except for those Bradford pairs developers seem to be so fond of), cookie cutter, from a mold, soon to be abandoned, building designs in Bartlett, Cordova, and anywhere else east of Highland. In midtown we'd rather not see our 'hoods get flattened by bulldozers in the name of progress.
Great! The MF should do more stories like this.
Another year or "notties" instead of "hotties". I hope people in other cities don't think this is the best we have to offer. Unless this is like the Miss America Pageant where looks are not suppose to count for that much anymore (yeah, right) then these are totally acceptable. Otherwise, I guess I should start submitting my own suggestions if I ever want to see anything that actually qualifies as "hot".
Even though I'm quite sure this is not the point of your article, but, I recently spent 5 1/2 hours getting to San Diego. Now to your point, right no target. I often find these conferences and symposiums are good for those throwing the event, and not so much for those paying the huge attendance fees to "learn" something. The cost of the dinner and drinks with fellow publishers/editors/writers, etc.. is the only money well spent because, as you said, it was where you learned the most.
I often find these things to be much like books on collectibles telling you the supposed value of something. It's worth whatever the writer of the book tells you it is. The money is selling the book, not collecting and re-selling the items it claims to know the value of. Thanks again for a great piece.
Yea, Bruce! You can make even the most ignorant (those without knowledge) understand.
NOT that it should matter but it appears that 25% of the list is a minority of some sort. I ditto what Bruce says and double ditto Memphisfan83. Can't we EVER do anything in this town that is positive and KEEP it that way? Why must EVERYTHING be about race? Nominate those you think are worthy or shut up.
