Tidbits Tidbits -- Crankypants Edition

Slowest Construction *Ever*: In a world where entire condo villages can go up seemingly overnight, what in the world is taking so *&%^-long with the Fresh Market at 54th and College? I swear, it's the slowest construction project I've *ever* seen.


A Menu from Meridian? I know Dan Dunville, chef at the upcoming Meridian, isn't the biggest self-promoter, and I know they're probably going to do the smart thing and soft launch, but could we at least find out roughly when? I mean, yesterday they were moving new furniture in already. Hoping someone breaks the radio silence soon.

Subway "Closed" for Remodeling: I don't know how these franchise owners do it. They close and say it's for renovations, but with no notice to employees, no new open date, and no visible work ever done. (Maybe they have lease terms that they have to still be "operating" the business in order to save a breakage fee?) Either way, the ghetto-Subway at 21st and Meridian, a quick and easy after-workout lunch stop for me? Closed. For "remodeling".

Perhaps remodeling is a more palatable term than fumigation...

I just spit Diet Coke out my nose. You are most probably right!

braingirl -- the Fresh Market developers have a long way to go before their project is declared Slowest Construction *Ever*. Buggs Temple has set the bar pretty high and they're still an "active player"!

Oh, see, I'd almost blocked Bugg's completely out of my mind.

The Meridian is shooting for the end of month VIP and a soft opening the first week of November.

On the Buggs Temple front, they've passed the the health inspection (without any kitchen equipment in place).
