You can come out and enjoy a themed dinner at The Bistro in a university setting, with additional dining choices available in The Marketplace, which is adjacent."
The Daily Times put out an article yesterday that has created quit the stir.
You see Folks, there was an initial agreement between the City and SU referencing the Commons Restaurant. The deal was, only people associated with SU, Alumni, employees, students, etc. were to be allowed to dine in this TAX FREE environment.
The key problem here is that SU made a promise it refuses to keep. The big question is, will the Mayor have the stones to not only make them accountable, will he make them stop such marketing tactics and shut them down to the public. A deal is a deal and this is why my hat is tipped to Tim, Terry & Debbie for stoping the old Fire Station 16 deal.
The Comons agreed they would NOT compete against local restaurants and they should be held to such. As all of you are aware, this is an extremely difficult economy and MANY restaurants have been forced to close their doors in the past two years and it could get even worse.
The loss of ANY business is not only critical to the restaurant owners, it's critical to the local economy. If you keep closing down locally owned restaurants it means NO tax revenue. If SU continues to compete and put other businesses out of business, THEY, (SU) PAY NO TAXES! Their overhead for employees is NOTHING like what other tax paying restaurants are paying and the trickle down effect is more costly than most would understand.
