a lot of people want it gone cause Louis Bar knowingly allows fireworks to go by their customers off on their property every evening (even as late as 1 am)
There are 15 Restaurants and Nightlife destinations in Benson. Of those, only three are dedicated to only alcohol. The rest have live music, poetry, performances and dance and or are mostly dedicated to food. And no, Benson does not need a parking lot.

I agree. All more parking lots would do is to further entrench car culture. The city should be doing everything it can to encourage people to make better choices. Cars are simply destructive to the urban landscape. They work well in rural areas and in suburbs to an extent, but not in urban areas.

There is just something great about getting somewhere by foot or bicycle that a car simply can't provide. Not to mention the great sense of belonging and an overall connection to the neighborhood.

They have prepared lunch food, but if you say so.

There will be two breweries opening in the next year that will serve food as well.

bucky's is coming to old louis market



btw:

this is over-saturation in benson area


there already a bucky's at 72nd (across from the empty lot that was supposed to be a CVS)

and a sinclair's across the street from where bucky's will be


and a gas station at 52nd and radial hwy (near Benson High)

and yes, I am allowed to use over-saturation word.



if it okay for councilman pete festersen to use that word (even out of context), than I can use that word also.



btw:


why cant benson area have a dollar tree or grocery store. not everyone who lives in benson is a bar hopper or drunk. many people are low-income singles or raise a family in benson


benson needs more business diversity. we need a grocery store and a dollar store in benson area
