    I'd like to see a "Wheelhouse": a great, cheap breakfast place with a lunch buffet. Homemade family food. Too much to ask for?

    Mexican would be perfect! Or Italian. I'll miss Messina's Italian dishes.

    It doesn't matter what with the price of rent in this space, nothing will last.

    Before they closed, I must have eaten at the Wheelhouse every week or two. Ate at Whiskey Bravo exactly twice.

    Right now, Salty Sue's is the only place near here with good food and good prices. Me and the wife had lunch there for under twenty bucks. I spent forty bucks on drinks just waiting to be seated at the Acme Ice House.

    Wine World's "The Craft Bar"...or something similar.

    We need somewhere to watch football where you don't have to show up early to get a seat to watch your game.

    I talked to Joe. He's flattered, but sadly...well, I'll leave it at that!
