re: US News 20-21 Best Places to Live in the US - remax_joe
The Portland/SanFran/Seattle rankings were likely done way ahead of ANTIFA. Today they'd clearly rank a lot lower. Quick glance and it showed Baton Rouge having one of the lowest quality of life rankings in the top 150. That is just sad. Seems like with technology now, there is an arms race t...

re: downtown baton rouge resturant scene - remax_joe
[quote]Perkins Rowe needs to fill those Kona Grill and Lava Cantina vacancies. California Pizza Kitchen isn’t doing well at a national level. If that CPK shuts down, then that court area in the middle would look really vacant. [/quote] Yes very good point. I saw CPK filed bankruptcy but wonde...

re: Are you thinking of leaving Louisiana for good? - remax_joe
We've been thinking of leaving in 2021. When we look at other places like Florida, Charleston, Nashville all of them have pros and cons. What doesn't make sense about BR is that you put up with sooooo much of the bad, but there is very little good. Weak economy, bad schools, bad politics, cra...

BR Mayor's Race continues to be a shite show - remax_joe
Also, given the amount of griping and complaining Jordan Piazza has done this whole time, I wonder if he will be leaving Baton Rouge if/when he doesn't get elected? [link=(https://www.businessreport.com/politics/baton-rouge-mayors-race-poll-carter-watson-tied-for-2nd-behind-broome)]LINK[/link]...

Galatoire’s BR - remax_joe
Looks like construction to retro fit this space into retail is about underway. Once complete, Lululemon will be moving in and vacating their smaller space across the parking lot. I’m sure the finished product will look great. ...

Siegen Lane Panhandling - remax_joe
Another example of lack of leadership (or competence) in this town. Getting really sick of this place. Successful business owners are now tasked with forming committees to address the city's problems (instead of people responsible for this stuff). [link=(https://www.businessreport.com/newslet...

re: White Star Market - Government Street - remax_joe
[quote]Three of the major tenants\vendors were leaving when their leases were up this summer. When Covid hit, my understanding is the owner of White Star, used it to break the lease with the developer, because those tenants had not been replaced.[/quote] You seem to be very close to the situation...

re: White Star Market - Government Street - remax_joe
[quote]Agreed. I can't for the life of me get what all the complaining is about with this project. Government street looks about 1000x nicer than it ever has.[/quote] A lot of people in BR are resistant to change, which is a main reason why BR continues to be one of the least attractive cities in...

re: White Star Market - Government Street - remax_joe
Red Stick social seemed like a really interesting concept with an awful location and horrendous execution. I agree Government St will see further closures, as will likely all areas of Baton Rouge. As for White Star vendors, the ones that put out a good product that I went to seemed to have p...

re: You sticking around BR for this shite? - remax_joe
I don’t think people are concerned about the winds it’s the amount of rainfall and flooding of streets this week that’s likely the issue. Plus, any time you can get out of BR seems like a wise idea. ...
