No TexMex in JAX? Might have to rethink this move.

More pop concerts (i.e. Natasha Bedingfield, Nelly Furtado, Lady GaGa, Avril Lavigne, Gwen Stefani/No Doubt) - would be nice, instead of having to drive to Orlando or Tampa, or Miami
A "red light district"
Long John Silvers, though we used to have them in Jacksonville (they still have them elsewhere in Florida and Georgia, and even in smaller cities like Gainesville, but not in J-ville ... come on!)
There used to be two Long John Silver's on the westside, but they closed. I guess no one was eating there? I like Captain D's better (baked/grilled options) and there's still one of those on 103rd, so I'm happy.

I'm with ya on the concerts and definitely Orange Julius! Love that.

The two Long John Silvers on the Westside were on Blanding Blvd. before 103rd, and Normandy before Lane Ave. There was also one on San Jose Blvd. in Mandarin and even one in Arlington.

Another thing I wanted to add...
Portuguese places to eat, and maybe Scandinavian if we don't have any already (we have Mexican-not counting Taco Bell, Indian, Thai, Cuban, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese(?), Middle Eastern).

Also agree on the Tex-Mex idea (we used to have a Tex-Mex restaurant or two many years ago).

Borders Books. Books a million is not even close. How about a pro football team-lol. How about a safe downtown? Ok, nuff griping. I love it here and keep finding new places after just moving here a few months ago. Mayport was cool, Singleton's looks like something off of Bizarre foods or Diners, Driveins and DIVES, but it was outstanding food. The sheepshead sandwich was outstanding. The clam chowder actually had clams in it. The onion strings from the appetizer menu was a half a dozen servings worth and they had several hot sauces to choose from. The waitress looked like she was about to keel over, but she kept our drinks cool.--I just keep finding new places and things.

This is the first city I've ever lived in that doesn't have a news radio station. I definitely miss that.

Unfortunately most people here are not all that curious about what's going on outside of their little world, by that I mean local issues, local politics, family, local weather, sports, church. You could be in your car all day and not be aware that a martian landed somewhere outside of Fl, not until you get home and see it on CNN or Fox. So unless you subscribe to satellite radio you are in the dark. But I too wish we had an all news radio station but it aint gonna happen in NEFL
