ETA: exactly as much? of course not. but there would be a lot of opposition. look how much how the nightclubs have fared. it's also interesting to think about how much an evening at the proposed multistory nightclub would ahve cost.
Sure, but the nightclubs are a different (but related) issue, aren't they?
I think people would be pissed off at a Cheesecake Factory, but they wouldn't be outraged. Do you think the Pintchik family would refuse to rent to them? (Also, see my post above about how much difference moving any of these places a few blocks north would make.)
also missing from the discussion - can you guys really picture women wearing something as short and tight as a hooters uniform at any other business within walking distance? low cut shirts and tight jeans are pretty different from those shorts.
Wilfrid kinda made that point above. You're absolutely right.
