Re: “'Cars 3' Promotional Event Headed to Public Square

Next time someone decided to block Public Square in this manner they might want to post signs to re-route normal pedestrian traffic. Why wasn't this off to one side or the other so that the cross walk was not impacted.

Re: “What Led to Councilman Brian Cummins' Last-Minute Flip-Flop on the Q Deal?

Everyone has these high expectations of Council and then are surprised when they're not met. Look at these guys and look at their backgrounds. Do you really think any individuals on council have the ability to put together or negotiate a complex arena financing package? Hell, it doesn't even have to be that complex. Let's be perfectly honest here. There are 17 councilmen and a number of them are clearly not that bright. They routinely do not understand the intricacies of what they do and propose, and clearly don't spend either the time or the effort to change that. Why would this be any different? It's not totally their fault. You don't have be an expert at everything, but know when you're out of your league and get some professionals in there to work on your behalf and on behalf of the taxpayers. Just because my neighbor is a nice guy and maybe has a law degree doesn't mean I'm bringing by '72 Mustang to his house for an engine swap. Hire professionals when it's important! I wouldn't let any of these guys negotiate a $50 loan to my brother, much less be the point people on an $88M investment.

Re: “Best Mexican Restaurant/Margarita

Well deserved! Most restaurants don't last anywhere near as long as Momocho and they are still bringing it home. Kudos!

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

You're trying to be sarcastic, but I would agree with you seriously. Why stop at 22 stories? Stop at whatever story you want if you own the place. And make the units 150sf if you want. It's your job to determine if there's a market for what you're building. Again, it's on the corner of Detroit and W28th. That's not a neighborhood. It's a main thoroughfare. It's not like he's dropping it on the corner of W44th and Whitman among single family homes. And by the way, it's a block or two from a number of other multistory highrise residential buildings so I don't see what the big deal is.

As for parking, what's required is defined by City code, not arbitrarily set by the developer.

Re: “Best Local Author/Writer

Congratulations, Connie. You are without doubt the BEST. And you and Sherrod are indeed the best power couple in the country.

BTW, I won this Scene award in 2014. They threw a fun party on West 25th Street for that one.

Love and admiration, as always,

I hope this one works out. It's such a cool little building. Glad to hear he gutted the space. It needed an update.

Re: “Best Coffee/Coffeehouse

Zero respect for Rising Star since I saw counter staff drinking on the job at Arcade coffee shop on St. Party's Day. And they sent 1 of the guys on a beer run. I don't want these people making my coffee now.

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

It's all about the the scale, dammit. A Chicago-style apartment building? At least a dozen teensy units (at maybe $1500 a month each) units per floor? No BFD...but why should the greedheads stop at a mere eleven stories and 163 units? Why not 22 stories and 326 units? Or 44 stories and 652 units? Or 88 stories and 1304 units?

Who cares about the parking for such a monstrosity? Millennials don't want to drive or own cars anymore. doncha know. They're doing it in Brooklyn (erecting massive1,000-unit towers), and all the slick magazines say Cleveland is the next Brooklyn, so why the hell not?

On a (rare) clear day, they could see forever...or at least to Sandusky.

Re: “What Led to Councilman Brian Cummins' Last-Minute Flip-Flop on the Q Deal?

This is a good illustration of the argument I have heard in favor of at-large reps, in those cities which have them.

i.e., at least some of council is then independent from "we'll hold your ward services hostage" threats.

Re: “What Led to Councilman Brian Cummins' Last-Minute Flip-Flop on the Q Deal?

Let's be completely honest: it's a re-election year for Cummins. His terrible (and mathematically bogus) explanations for joining forces with the other 11 ring hollow. He needs campaign contributions and he doesn't need a vindictive backlash by making political enemies. He sold out. Again. Just like he sold out when he voted last year to increase the cap for campaign contributions to council members. Only three council members voted against it. Cummins wasn't one of those three. The same shady game he's been operating for the last several years. What happened to this guy?
