I love the S&B in OKC! I think it would do very well in Midtown or Downtown Tulsa.

Looks like Full Moon isn't opening back up.  They said initially that they were renovating, but I read this morning that they are auctioning off all their equipment.  The pianos were fun and the outdoor patio was neat, but the food was bad and the beer selection was lean.  "World famous" tortilla soup?  More like Pace picante sauce and milk.  It was terrible.  The brunch was about all that was worth eating there.  And the limited beer selection just wasn't keeping up with the times. 

I learned recently that Cherry Street has some of the highest rent in Tulsa so I can't imagine it'll be vacant for too long.  Hopefully something neat and innovative opens up.  Would prefer something local but if its a chain hopefully it's something unique and urban and not a Jimmy Johns or something lame.  The patio alone should have people interested.

Auctioning off the equipment is not necessarily incompatible with a renovation.  (FWIW, their website still says it's "temporarily closed for construction")

Based on pics from the auction site, better to start over with the equipment.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Yes, new construction approaches $40/sq ft triple net in the Cherry Street corridor.

Full Moon is a corner lot.  Is the lot large enough for a QT?

Is there anything keeping QT/Kum & Go from building there?

Lot size would be a problem. Also it doesn't have the traffic count a gas station wants. Finally, why pay a premium for foot traffic when that's not what you are designed for?

I thought of it...my mind said "That would suck" and I posted.

What you said makes sense.  I guess it could be a CVS or cell phone/mattress store.

California Nails & T-Mobile was what I was hoping for.

Anyone eat at D'Vina yet?

We walked in around 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon and there was a band setting up outside.

We wandered around the interior of the place for a minute or two looking for employees.  The wife got weirded out and we decided to leave.

The band said "thanks for coming folks" and we walked down to Kilkennys.

There will be a meeting about 15th Street Rehabilitation between Peoria and Lewis (aka, Cherry Street) next Monday, November 21, 6:00 pm, at Christ the King Church.  There also will be a discussion of multi-modal street plans and public transportation.  Cherry Street could be a real jewel if done correctly.  The sidewalks on Cherry Street proper (Peoria to Utica) are wonky and disconnected based on how it developed over time.  Now that it is without question a major attraction, it needs proper streetscaping with wide sidewalks, trees, and protected cross walks.  A bike lane would be awesome too.  We need a good showing of people to say that they walk and bike consistently in that area to convince them to get it right.  Please consider attending.
