In Topic: Rainbow Club Incident

That's too bad.

 

I've seen a lot of work done on the proposed Lipscomb building (It's right across the street from our office), but most everything was on the Twilight side. I don't think anything has been done to the old building.

On a side note, it looks like Club Reflection, right across from the Rainbow Lounge building, is possibly expanding and renovating. They were working on the openings in a CMU wall facing Jennings this morning.

 

CMU?  What does that stand for?


In Topic: Project Sundance

I'm willing to bet that any signage that Sundance puts up with the Nissan name will be very discrete and subtle.  There also may be very few things that show the Nissan name.  The DDRB hears all cases regarding signage, so I'm sure that if there are signs that will be placed, it will go before the DDRB in a public hearing where anyone, including member of this forum may express their opinions.

 

I think that is an interesting bet; though the proof will be in the "pudding".  However, why would Nissan ink an marketing agreement if it does not want its brand displayed often and prominently?

 

 

So they can park a truck on the square with some advertising signage.  I have to admit that it caught my attention the first time I saw it.

So ban all parking lots.  :glare:

 

 Nothing so radical as that :wacko:; just don't run roads through them.

 

 

I know this post has been sitting here a while, but I really don't see an inherent problem.  When Farrington Field is being used for a game or event I would fully expect cops present to direct traffic if needed.  Have you ever been to an event at American Airlines Center?  All public parking is across the street and cops direct traffic on game days.


In Topic: New Title Sponsor for Colonial

Good news for Colonial. And looks like XTO and American Airlines will help. https://t.co/7NRRpidcej

 

From the article:  "On Wednesday night, club officials met with the board to apprise it of where things stand." 

 

Just think:  A professional writer wrote that, and a professional editor edited that.


In Topic: New Isis to be Refurbished??

01 December 2017 - 03:34 PM

 

Good news, but this theater seriously needs to drop the unfortunate name.

I want to say no and point out that Isis was a thing long before... You know who.

But there are a lot of very ignorant people in this sta...er, world, and it may wind up changing anyway because of it.

 

 

I'm not so sure the name should stay.  The swastika was an ancient symbol of good luck but it's taboo to use it anymore.  Will memories of the Islamic State linger?  Perhaps.
