I like it. They are one of the few places with a pleasant outdoor patio. They could put a sound barrier up on the RR12 side, but other than that I enjoy the occasional cup of coffee or a beer there.

For what it's worth, the campus master plan doesn't show that... It shows a number of parking garages going in in some of the current lots. I speculate it's to make up for the loss of parking that...

LMC,
Attracting the film industry is great. Paying people as extras is great. How many people can make a career out of it here? That's the difference. It is not going to stabilize and develop...

Zen lessons are fine, but if you want to be a lunch place near campus, you should be reasonably fast. I don't know that that is why they shut down. They were in business for many years, so there...
