Not a bad locale, actually. The Eastlink building should act as a bit of a buffer from the busy intersection of Spring Garden and South park.

I'm assuming they are going with picnic tables because of the temporary nature of the site - I'm sure it will be developed before long.

Sure will be an improvement over what's there now - nothing.

The second largest East Side Mario's location in Canada opened yesterday next to THE KEG with front row seats to the Nova Centre.

Ugh. I hate seeing trash like this in a prime downtown location.

I wonder if they will be chasing the ambulance-chaser's lawsuit along with Lil MacPherson and Attica against Nova Centre?

I think it would be hard to do that if they're opening DURING the disruption. Isn't the premise of the lawsuit that the construction activity has impacted existing businesses by reducing traffic and sales by measurable amounts? I'd think it would be hard for East Side Mario's to measure a decline from nothing.

My point exactly, I guess you missed my sarcasm. Opening the second-largest ESM location in the country a stone's throw away from the site in question would tend to deflate the claims made by the plaintiffs.

That space doesn't seem to be all that prime, as most businesses there have not lasted very long.

Fair enough point.

Still, east side dogfood emporium seems better suited to malls and business parks than a downtown.

This should work well with the upgrades happening on Argyle St. now:

Trailer Park Boys add landmark Halifax eatery, bars to growing business empire
The Canadian Press

Quote:
Along with Gary Howsam, producer of the hit television show, and Halifax bar owner Brad Hartlin, the Trailer Park Boys have bought up the Halifax landmark Economy Shoe Shop Cafe and Bar from local businessman Victor Syperek.

In the same deal, the business partners also acquired the former Seahorse Tavern space, a live-music venue located below the Shoe Shop, and brokered the joint ownership of the Toothy Moose cabaret upstairs, previously co-owned by Smith (Bubbles) and Hartlin.

Could be the beginning of the end for that group of bars. Hartlin is not a good operator, and Smith & co. are not likely to be anything other than absentee shareholders.

Hard to say. The Moose was always a popular hangout, hell, whatever sits in that stretch is going to boom with college kids. If they hang on until after the Argyle streetscaping and Nova Centre opening, it could become a going concern.

Regardless of opinions on their business prowess, their plan seems like a good one, though. Switching the Toothy Moose area from a bar for kids who just reached drinking age to a more upscale lounge will be more in keeping with the new vibe of the street, IMHO.

Time will tell if it's a success or not.
