This is a great overview of downtown redevelopment. I appreciate all the work that was done by the many people mentioned here. I enjoyed downtown to a degree in the 80's and 90's, coming to shows at the Bijou, Tennessee and Ella Guru's, especially. The Spaghetti Warehouse was a fun place to take our young daughter and to meet other friends and there were a good many kid-friendly events in the World's Fair Park and on Market Square even during the lean years. Pow Wows and International festivals come to mind. Around 1990 our daughter took acting lessons downtown and an art class in the Candy Factory. In the last ten years it became the place my wife and I, along with friends, would always wind up when we wanted to go to an interesting place. Finally, it just made sense to move there and we've loved it for the last year and a half. I can never say enough to thank the people who made all that possible. Anyone interested in reading about the kinds of things that happen downtown these days, you might want to check out my blog devoted specifically to that at http://www.stuckinsideofknoxville.blo.... In the meantime, maybe it's time for some of you to consider joining the rest of us downtown. It really is a great place to live - thanks to so many who took the risks for years.
