Seriously, what kind of a dick do you have to be to down-vote the above comments?
Ria was an immense talent and truly one of a kind. She had great vision to convert that boarded-up liquor store on the corner into such an inviting space back in 2000, thus paving the way for all the other successful businesses that followed on Memorial Drive.
I hope the Bluebird remains open to carry on her formidable legacy.
All these stipulations re: limits on nearby competition make me wonder...did the Braves organization play an active role in suppressing commerce in the surrounding area? I've always thought the blight on Georgia Avenue east of the stadium was due primarily to property owner John Elder's obstinacy (see the great article linked below), but this makes me wonder if there was something else to it. And remember that KYC/Taco Bell directly across the street that suddenly disappeared a few years ago? It's one thing for a business to bail on a building, but it's another thing entirely when the building is completely razed -- thus reducing the likelihood of another Braves-competing restaurant setting up shop there.

@yep Apparently not people with shitty taste in music like you.
Isn't 2.7 acres kind of small for a development like this? Especially one with a big football field as its centerpiece (I'm assuming the field won't be 1:1 scale, but still...). Does anyone have a link to a site plan?
I'm relieved to see this mom 'n' pop fondue store, and not yet another Fondue Depot.
The last page of that RFI outlines almost the exact same streetcar route I've been hoping for. Make it happen, Atlanta!
