That's it for the Sarasota trip during Thanksgiving. It really makes me appreciate the whole experience on days like this when we have a storm like today.

B-Lo near the TOP!!!

I was shock to see that Buffalo is #16 on this list of fastest recovering cities and where I currently hanging out is currently #93.



I guess it was a blessing that we didn't base our economy on building condos to provide jobs to non union unskilled labor, real estate whores aka "Flippers" and douchebag loan officers. :-D

Strange

I was walking back from the establishment on the corner after watching the Bills Game and it occured to me and my Dad.
I don't think I have been passed by so many Mercedes in 5-7 minutes. That's something you don't experience everday even in Williamsville I suppose.

Anyway I'm having a great time hearing my parent's friend conversation with my parents wondering if her ex beach bum boyfriend who blew through a cool milllion literally [ he had some speciality business] and skiped town to Fort Myers [ to persue a dream of being a stand up comedian] $500 check is going to clear the bank. I guess boys don't ever grow up even when they approach 60.

This rarely happens

Hialeah Park for the first time since May 2001.

Usually when a racetrack shutters it usually is followed by it being torn down and condos or a shopping center being put in its place.

I'm just glad that it had a pretty descent first day back in that time warp way. Yea, outside of Derby day and other special events at places like Saratoga where women like to doll up in those hats, it's mostly a dying game at the track itself. With online betting and speciality channels that bring simulcasting to your living room there is little need to to go the track or OTB unless you want to hang with a few buddies.

The thing is that that place is just too special to let it rot. With the formula that they are going to implement with poker and slots it will be a winner. Last night I went to a dog track and was shocked to see the little action that was at the track. Then I went upstairs to the new poker room and saw 20 tables going which is pretty much on par with what the Seneca Niagara Casino does on a Saturday night. So with a house "drop" or revenue of about 25k that would be more than any "takeout" or revenue from running a dog track alone.

So what I'm saying is Hialeah could not come back on its own as a horse track, but with poker and slots they're going to keep the old time game alive and do quite well. I just have to get myself down to Miami one of these days to see it for myself. It's not often that you can go somewhere and experience the 1970's all over again at some level.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
