Just had breakfast at Heritage on a whim on Wednesday and it was so good! Love what the inside looks like and of course the omelet was top notch!

Hope they design the rooms for easy conversion to condos, as I'm not sure more non-casino hotel rooms are needed, or condos that are too small either.

Demo Kitchen? Does that mean I get play with big boy toys? I have neither the room or money for Hobart but I'd love to test drive it.

Topic: Ice Rink Downtown to be Relocated

The new location would work out well as I believe that the Aces ballpark has a lot to offer. However making the rink smaller would definitely be a mistake. The current size does well for the amount of people during the busy time. During that time experienced skaters like me would have a lot less space to skate. Looking forward to another awesome year of ice skating

Topic: The Bridge opens soon, puts in real windows

Went to the soft opening last night. Place looks great inside and the food was amazing. No surprise, as the Chef used to be at 775 Gastropub and they had the best food in town. This place is going do really well with their local ingredients and Chefs ability to create amazing dishes.

Topic: Kings Inn Facelift Planned
Posted by: BC Dave - 10/19/2014 6:50:48 AM
The poor old King's Inn hasn't been open since sometime in the mid 1980s. I believe there were several attempts, in the 90s and beyond, to open it again as a hotel casino or as apartments. (And, of course, nothing happened). I used to walk by it on my way to the Sands. You could just make out rows of dusty old slot machines. Then came the broken windows, the boarding up and the ugly paint. It's sad that this place, where people once had fun, has sat vacant and neglected for so long. Good luck to those who plan to revitalize it. I sure hope it works out this time. I'll believe when I see it.

Doesn't look like much of an upgrade over the existing facade. It still has that cheesy, greasy, 80's diner feel to it. most likely another failed venture

Thanks for the update!

I recall one of the biggest reasons the Mapes was razed was because of compromised concrete which made the property too expensive to renovate. Sad because it was a gorgeous building and the location would have been great for high end urban flats.

This is certainly good news, indeed! I just can't help but wonder how this was made possible for such an, up until now, unattractive and oddly located building, yet no such positive outcome could have, or was accepted, to have saved the Mapes Hotel.

Too bad they didn't replace the door/entry way. Funky domed thing over it looks bad. If they were going to update it I wish they'd update the whole front facade. Another failed business at this location coming? I hope not but it still looks poor from the outside IMHO.
