The Olive Blockbuster Is Done, So Now What?
It's no news that video stores are a dying breed. They have quickly joined record stores as a niche market collector sorta place. But isn't there still SOME room for the places even with the downloading and vending?
Nope. Not when the Olive Avenue Blockbuster, in the heart of the Tower District, is closing. Game over, man. Game over.
Moving on from that. Now there is going to be a prime PRIME Tower District spot open. That Blockbuster building is large enough for a club or a big restaurant or some kind of retail we're not thinking of.
Maybe a new music venue called "The Fresnan"? The most awesome local music venue ever. Where the stage is just the right size. The sound is perfect. The bathrooms are big and magically stay clean. The bands are not douchebags and the singers can actually sing. Fans buy merch and stand in front of the stage. The beer is never taped-out. It's all-ages and Chief Dyer is, like, totally cool with that. Yes. YES!
Wait. Maybe somebody can finally open up "Fresno's"!
Or we could just let Dusty Buns park there.
