One day early last week, I stopped at madhatter muffler down town to get a Lil work done. I hadn't been in there in 20 years. Left my truck, walked down to aeillos pizza for lunch and walked back. Had a great experience.
I needed to meet a guy for a casual business meeting the next day. He suggested cool beans coffee. Never been before, Had a good experience there too.... I grew up going to the YMCA in the late 70's down town was on the way down. I delivered pizzas in the late 80's early 90's, down town was kinda scary....
so there is improvement out there', people might not see it because your there every day. We still have a long way to go to improve our area. But there is some happening. Good luck Tired, have a good weekend
