An interesting dinner in Fort Wayne

We went to "The Trolley Bar" with one of Karena's clients tonight.

Five couples from a variety of backgrounds went.

The food was good and so was the company...

Eventually someone (not me by the way) brought up Harrison Square. Guess what, all ten of us agreed on Harrison Square...

Imagine that...

Hey Mike

I to had an interesting dinner in Fort Wayne. Durnell's on south Broadway (Way more interesting than the Trolley Bar BTW)

Three couples and the subject of Harrison Square came up. (Not by me I might mention)


And guess what
Four supported the project
and two opposed the project.

Imagine That.

Pass the salt.
Thank You very much
:)

Gee, and I thought you two would stop bickering once the vote was taken!

Dan and Scott:

I have never been to Drunells. I may try it out...

I should have also added that all of the couples were older then Karena and I. I should also add that all of from either the edges of Fort Wayne or from the County.

We are not bickering Scott, just a friendly conversation...

Looking for something downtown said...

I work with 14 people, the age range is 31 to 45, and all of us agree that Harrison Square is a must. These are all professionals, if that makes any difference. I ate at home last night. I find that unless one has reservations for dinner, there is almost always a wait on Friday and Saturday nights. I think we need more restaurants. Fort Wayne sure does like to eat out.

I have no doubt that there are entire groups who support the project...

Durnell's has a killer pork tenderloin if I remember correctly...

LFSDT,

What line of work are these professionals in? Was this an anonynous survey, or would have the 11th through 14th people polled been influenced by the first 10.

I agree that we could use more restaurants downtown. Hey, whatever happened to that place called the Palace?

Durnell's has fantastic food, they do not take credit cards. One time, someone in our group did not have cash, and the bartender said that he could just come back and pay some other time.

I do not recall if Harrison Square came up.

Robert,
The professionals I speak of are in the financial industry. And no, none of the people were influenced into their decision. This was a friendly conversation, and we'd all like to see downtown come to life again. Although I'm not really for a baseball stadium, per se, I'm all for a multi-use sports facility. I think it would be great to see restaurants, bars, shopping areas, etc. brought downtown. An outdoor music arena would be great too.
