  • Lopez Andrew says:

    you could put all the restaurants and bars you want downtown. The cities lost focus our focus. Eight years ago it was to put 30 to 40,000 residents in the downtown area. The idea of moving student housing to thE west side of I-35 has failed.
    It it’s all about MC Square. High rents, soring taxes, minimal pedestrian growth. Is a faIlure wAitingto happen.
    Plus it’s not magnolias responsibility to build our downtown.

    A grocery store like a new york bodega that has a deli and/ or a lunch counter with pizza, sandwiches, salads and soUps.

  • Candace Minshew says:

    I think based on growth of downtown it would support a beautiful old fashioned soda fountain and candy shop like La Confectionary on The Strand in galveston.

  • Doug Cofer says:

    Chris – interesting perspective and thoughts. Thanks for contributing them. i’d like your thoughts on the role cost to build plays in the lack of structures built today that will be iconic in the future. in other words, i perceive that structures today are designed and built with total cost to build squarely in the forefront. to me, this naturally leads to a lack of iconic new structures. do you agree/disagree?

  • Rebekah Hagman says:

  • Dolma williams says:

    information on space available. i would like to open a small tibetan restaurants.

  • Nan Ellis says:

    Where is the parking!!!

  • Patrick Meleton says:

    THis sounds remarkable. I am envisioning many unique gelato flavors, chewy pretzels, flavorful gyro’s, fondue, chocolate dipped strawberries, gourmet street tacos with goat cheese….and on and on.

    Crossing my fingers that the folks here will stick to high end quality over quantity.
    And that we will see excellent, interesting, experimental or exotic flavors, and artisan products instead of industrial volume canned food we have grown to be tired of around here. Rooting for this to be all it can be!!!

    And folks…we must support it if they do!!!!

    I was excited for this event, but went AND the staff had no idea what I was talking about. I think the venue is incorrect as the staff said they would never have byob.

    • Wendy Gragg says:

      We’re so sorry! Apparently, there’s a Brazos Theatre event at the Waco Winery downtown next Saturday but somehow the information got crossed and we thought Improv Against Humanity was in that space. We apologize profusely. We had been looking forward to it as well.
