Whiskey Business has a competitor with seemingly much more traffic at 11th and Elgin.

I haven't been in there in a long time, but that place was more Mad Dog 20-20 Business than Whisky Business.

I'll admit to using Modern Spirits more in the last six months than Whiskey Business even though I drive within a block of Whiskey Business to get to Modern Spirits.  Or, I'll make a pass and if there is no parking along 1st St, I head to Modern Spirit.

I haven't been in there for a while.  Are they (Modern Spirits) still planning on taking the space next to them for a beer room expansion?

Thatís the one near the overpass.  Became a bike shop and frequent vandalism target.  Itís been vacant now something like two years.  Still seems to be a sketchy location for any business.

Yeah, that was it. I really wish someone would buy up Gunboat Park and restore all those apartment buildings. It could be really great area.

That area is ripe for gentrification and you could put a bodega in the old liquor store location.  With the proximity to the CBD, that makes so much sense.

There's been some crossfit stuff going on in that building from time to time over the last year or so.  Gunboat Park would be a perfect redevelopment project with really neat old apartments to fix up. 

I also have been going to Modern Spirits instead of Whisky Business, mainly because it's easier on my way out of downtown.  Whisky Business really needs more residents downtown to be successful.  Say, a bunch of young people living above them, but that's just crazy talk.

I know of three different groups that have tried to do something with Gunboat Park.  The biggest issue is getting enough of the property that you can do something meaningful.  Having the industrial buildings on the north side make it harder.

Do you know if the Priceís have any interest in selling their buildings?  Some of the industrial/warehouse could be great loft projects.

From Facebook.  Looks like they'll fight on.  I'll try to support them better.

So inventory goes with the business.  So it wouldn't make sense to sell and then buy more inventory.
