    Much anticipated and greatly desired. I thought they had started the renovations already, though. It’s supposed to be ready by October and pretty extensive.

    Any word on the Golden Buddha restaurant at street level? Isn’t it closed? Do they ever plan on replacing it with something else? How about a Fox and Hound restaurant? I know it’s a chain but it would probably do well there.

    Mike, Chains are not all bad. Your comment seems apologetic for even suggesting it. If it is good, let have it.

    Caleb, you don’t get out to Philips much, huh?. The picture you have isn’t of Phillips Arena, but its parking deck across the street next to the Glen Hotel. The photo is also pre-tornado as that whole facade is now gone. And you tried contacting them? It’s a place inside the building that’s only open during games. It’s a glorified concession stand. That’s like calling Phillips Arena and asking to speak with the hot dog stand. I give you credit for at least not mentioning the Thrashers at least.

      hi harry — thanks for bringing that to our attention. and you’re right, never been to be honest. not a sports person as previously discussed. i’ll find a new photo. as for your “glorified” concession stand bit, that’s a pretty big investment and well worth the mention.

      best regards,
