The Quarry is owned by the same people who own Stilllife downtown.

All of the Upper Deck waitresses were waiting for the Mellow Mushroom to open to bolt across. Kinda sucks UD is leaving. That place can't catch a break. Hopefully Bonefish will do better.


Also, they're actually moving dirt for the VA clinic, so that is fun.

Any idea what kind of road construction is going on 10th St? The middle three lanes are blocked. Looks like it could be either a road resurfacing or maybe (cross fingers) building a medium.

No, it's not a median, although there may up being one. They're connecting Farmville Blvd to W. 10th St.

This is an excellent project. Before I moved here I used to have a travel trailer at Twin Lakes over in Chicowinity. To get there I would come in on 264 and then turn right on 11, left on Dickinson, and then right on 10th St. For people that don't know their way around it was very awkward, especially though that mess at Dickinson and 10th. This will clean the whole thing up and make it significantly easier to negotiate that route.

It would have been much easier to stay on the 264 outer loop and just take a left onto 33 at Hastings Ford.

Just saying. It's called a bypass for a reason.

anyone heard anything about the new La Ribera..i read on another board that this person went to eat & they do not serve alcohol there. Unless the food is real good, that's going to be an issue for them most likely.

Surprising, considering how much $ they spent to fix the place up...if that's true.

A Mexican restaurant with no margaritas? If true, I doubt they'll last.

It's going to be a bar/club and it's supposed to open this weekend. Somehow I can't see it celebrating a one year anniversary next year.

The Quarry (former Boli's 5th St. Pizzeria) has paper cover their windows during its much needed renovation, but the paper is peeling, revealing glimpses of what's happening inside. Walking by, I could see brick has been laid around the posts surrounding the bar, and simple, yet nice individual lights hanging across the length of the bar. It looks as if there's much more work to be done, and I'll bet it has cost quite a lot. I miss going to Boli's, but it's good to see an investor going in full-scale on a new project.

The former Downtown Athletic Club (next to the Armadillo) is now some sort of combination barbershop/pool hall. The pool table looked kind of cheap and small. I'm not real optimistic about the longevity of this place.

Greenville Fire & Rescue Officials Seeking Seventh Station

Fire Chief seeks a new station, possibly on Firetower Rd.
It may be romantic to have a fire station next to an actual firetower (not that's where he wants it), but Firetower Rd. has a median and would be hard to navigate the shortest route possible. The part of Firetower that doesn't have a median (near Carmike) is thick in traffic and is in Bells Fork, which is served by the fire station on Red Banks and Charles. Perhaps Evans St. between Firetower and Greenville Blvd. would be better. Personally, seeing how much of that end of Firetower has Winterville addresses, I'd say a seventh Greenville fire station should not be given a priority right now. Maybe re-addressing the idea in five years, with a better economy, would be better.

The Quarry is going to be another Pizza & Italian rest., we know the family of the cook who will be working there. Convection ovens, not brick.
