Milwaukee has been changing things up a bit but I seem to recall at one point it looked like we were driving right underneath downtown buildings.




Try driving eastbound on the George Washington bridge in NYC sometime.... I-95.  Ride in a big truck to make it even more exciting!   There are scrapes in the concrete over the roadway where trucks have bounced up and hit the 'floor' of the buildings it goes under.

You put any of those scrapes there?

Same, love your unique store and have been impressed by the new developments along 11th.  Still a few gaps here and there but quickly becoming a destination district.

To paraphrase Schultz;

I know nothing!


May have - only went through a handful of times and it would always bounce the truck hard at that transition point into the tunnel.

Has anyone heard what is going in the old Next Level on 1st St? They've really opened up the layout on the inside.

They are making progress on the new top level of the Brut Hotel at 18th & Boulder.  This will be a rooftop bar/restaurant and event space with a great skyline view

Not related to any specific development, but if you want an indicator of how the north end of downtown is doing/has changed, drive on 244 and look at the number of new buildings in the foreground that rise about the highway. It's a very different view from even 5-6 years ago. Super exciting. I would take a picture, but I'm always driving and I'm not trying to die.

Glacier Dessert Bar has closed suddenly. This comes as a shock to me. It always seemed popular, and the cheesecake was amazing. This is a big blow, IMO. We need more unique and non-alcohol centered places like this around downtown. Hopefully they can come back someday when things have settled down with ingredient prices.

Lassalle's New Orleans Deli also closed down. They were on the rocks for awhile though. It's unfortunate that they scrimped by so long and almost made it to the "end" of the pandemic only for this to happen.

Lasalle's was a shock to me, especially the abruptness to it. Glacier does not given they have a way more accessible location in Utica Square and also one out south. They also own Emerald Gallery downtown, they just likely have too many locations and given the one they picked to close it was likely that the Utica Square store just had too many of the same customers and there was no need for the additional location downtown.

Fingers crossed we can get a good new Indian food restaurant in downtown/midtown, we are definitely lacking in that area and I think a decent place would do really well.

I am excited about the rooftop bar/restaurant planned for the Brut Hotel.  That building has one of the better skyline views from that angle, and it's close to my house.   Grin

It's sad that Lassalle's is closed.  I only get downtown a few times a year.  When I did, I got something at Lassalle's.

I wonder if they would consider opening in another location?  They were really popular.  I'd love to see them in the 18th & Boston area or maybe in one of the recently-vacated spots on Cherry Street.

I think a lot of places have just been hanging on hoping to make the end of the pandemic and now that we are in another Covid wave places are giving up. Could get ugly.

That could be, some of their govt assistance might be running out too.
