I guess I'm mostly just hating on its branding. The menu looks pretty good so I'll probably at least give it a chance. I'm just worried that the branding and marketing for this place will just attract a bunch of Johnny Manziel types.

Interesting that no one cares if you don't want a bunch of "Johnny manziel types" (ie. Bro's, frat boys, partiers) but if someone says I don't want all those low class bums on public square everyone explodes and says you need to be more 'tolerant', 'accepting' or "this is a city stay in the burbs if you dont like it".

I can totally see why someone wouldn't want manziel types all over but if were gonna be PC lets not be hypocritical.

One group is bothering the public, the other group isn't bothering the public...

Oh? and which is which?

Not sure when these went up but I noticed last night that there are new LED streetlights up and down Prospect. Much better than the ugly old ones. At least from E 9th to the casino. Not sure how much farther they extend.

Not 100% sure but I think there are cameras inside/under the new lights.

Those look great. Add it to the list of streetlight types downtown. Haha seriously it just makes me crazy. They were using a specific style of light on new areas of E. Ninth like the 9, County HQ, Schofield, etc. that match all the lights in the median of E. 12th. The lights are rounded and are an off white color. In the last week theyve been replacing some old lights around 1717 and the Amtrust building and are using a totally different style!  Really?

Here is an excerpt from last year about the smart grid lights the city is installing:
"the fixture's "adaptive" smart photocell technology to gather other information, such as:

- Measure snow fall per hour on any street.
- Detect the number of people walking in a neighborhood or vehicles passing through.
- Detect smoke or other pollutants on a street.
- Hear and report the sound of gunfire"

Does anyone know why they've cut down a decent amount of trees downtown? Is it a security issue for the RNC? They've left the trees up on the streets that have more natural light and are wider and they've essentially cut down the trees on streets that are more narrow and get less sunlight?

I THINK I read somewhere that they had a plan to replace lots of sick or dead trees downtown before the RNC

Yeah, I think it might be related to the recently adopted Cleveland Tree Plan.

From a friend who is a resident- Prospect Place Apartments will soon be giving their residents 60-day notices to move out, unless they are interested in purchasing their units, as they plan to convert their apartments into condominiums. My friend's 1bed/1bath will be offered in the 180k/190k range. Seems like a good sign for establishing more condos downtown, though I think the landlords are just not qualified enough to handle an apartment building (that's their only one) and want it off their hands.

My building (Water St) is undergoing the same process. I own mine already, so it's not a huge deal, but I know that some of the rental units are not being renewed once an existing lease is up. They are renovating them and selling.

The "Moxie" property at 811 Prospect will be called "811 Kitchen*Bar*Lounge" it appears (as that's the DBA in their just-filed liquor license application). Not personally a fan of unimaginative "street number" restaurant names, though I guess they serve a directional/locational purpose.

This morning the Wild Eagle blade sign was removed, and (what looks like) a temporary ground LED sign replaced it.

Odd.

This is from a couple days ago, before they took down the main sign this morning. Just when I thought this place couldn't get any tackier looking...

The neon sign on the roof of the Q is lit up tonight. Can't tell if they are still testing it or not as I am not high enough. But I can see it from my 6th floor window. Just in time for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals tomorrow!
