phil a delphia lets hope 4th and tavern isnt going anywhere soon as it is the best bar in greenville that plays live music and is upscale especially compared to some of the other clubs. I do agree that many different places could pop up in the next few years to take over that are not now.

It was just an example, one that I chose specifically because of its ample adjacent parking. You and a lot of other people can consider 4th St. Tavern the best bar in town, but Boli's went from being voted best pizza several years in a row to being shut down - and as a regular there I can tell you the product did not change. Business can be fickle, they come and go. I wish 4th St. no demise at all. Businesses = jobs = larger tax base.

fair enough. Another thing we need IMO and something I would like to do one day if I made the money is to make a true ECU restaurant/bar downtown. We have a pretty good assortment of bars and restaruants downtown and around greenville but none are really ECU themed. Itd be a place that could cater to the family and older crowd, as well as college kids. Basically like carolina ale house but painted purple and gold and would be downtown. Also itd have live music and stuff on the weekends.

If my store turns out to be profitable within the first 2-3 years, I'll be glad to partner up with you on opening a ECU themed restaurant as long as the police presence downtown increases and crime decreases.

Definitely a dream for me right now but once I get settled with a job here in the next few months I will see how I will do financially. Hopefully the evans street streetscape improvements get going as I would love to put the restauarant where the thai place is or across the street at the community arts building thing.

Well, we have the Pirates Den and A.J. McMurphy's briefly converted to Pirates Pub. The difference in being a pirate themed bar and being ECU Pirate is trademark and licensing issues. They'd have to share the wealth with the university. Not likely to happen.

A large portion of the Minges parking lot is fenced off. I'm assuming the new basketball facility construction will begin soon.

I was uptown earlier today and I'm beginning to identify why it isn't up to par with most city centers. Our Uptown area has too many stand-alone buildings and not enough in-fill development; as I stated a few days ago we cannot be afraid to demolish buildings that are deemed insignificant so within 25 years I expect a decent of those buildings to be demolished. The amount of green space is pathetic if you exclude Town Commons which is mediocre anyways. I promise if I were mayor/city planner of Greenville uptown would be desirable within the next 10 years, we need more private/public partnerships.

But in other development news, I believe a new apartment complex is going to be built on Hooker Road where I believe a old Frat House is. This is the location:

Nice! I like that sign, didn't the university medical sign use to be there?
