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.
