LOVE THE NEW SITE! WE ARE PROUD TO HAVE HELPED YOU AND DOWNTOWN WACO BRING IT TO LIFE. SO EXCITED about everything going on downtown and appreciate the work you and everyone is doing.
Would your group bE intrested in the DownTown Neighborhood ASSOCIATION?
I’ve meant to attend meetings but always had a schedule conflict.
You captured not only the history but the emotion and nostalgia!
Can we bring a cooler?
A small grocery store.
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.
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.
Kinda like Hey sugar?
A trader joes!
The Art Center of Waco
I think something like bankston’s would do really well downtown!
AN oriental grocery store.
An organic grocery store. A vegan/vegetarian restaurant. A bookstore/coffee shop.
Your in for a treat Joey and Tami are wonderful people and there last business was a huge sucess ,a great asset to waco for sure
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?
Thank you so much for featuring us! We are so excited for the future of 7twelve and look forward to being a hub for waco culture and art!
Yay milo all day !!!!

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!!!!
[…] Shane Turner, partial owner of Union Hall, describes the food hall concept as the brick-and-mortar version of an open-air European market, according to the Downtown Waco blog. […]
IT has to be close, Barnetts whiskey wall might Have the largest selection in texas.
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.
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.
Hecho In Waco and also the pie peddlers have out door patio areas as well.
Added them! Thank you for helping us out!
Pinewood coffee house and their new sister establishment, pinewood public house (beer and wine) have a great courtyard with tables and a big oak tree for shade in between the two establishments.
We love Pinewood! However, they are not downtown and this is a list of downtown spots. Thanks though!
Alpha Omega has a large outd Seating area. Great food and gReat pricing as well.
Got it added. Thank you!
