    Cory, the DQ/Orange Julius is going to be between The Limited and a candy store on the 3rd floor. Not too far from the food court. Signs are now up on the site and it looks like they are working hard to renovate the space.
  • Whatever happened...
    While having nothing to do with this, does anybody know what happened to the baseball fields planned for the old Twin-Aire drive-in site? Thanks.
  • "Cannolis?"
    Forgive me for questioning the authenticity of the Cannoli Queen, but it seems the owners should know that cannoli is the plural form of those tasty sweets, not "cannolis."
    • More Circle Center
      The Verizon kiosk in Circle Center is closing April 28. There is no downtown replacement store planned at this time according to counter help.
    • Thank you
      Thanks Jon! Anyone else see any "coming soon" signs at local malls?
    • Autozone
      Autozone doe's not have a greenwood location the one on 31 is a mile north of county line road in Indianapolis. The shopping center is called Greenwood Commons but is not in Greenwood.
      • Greenwood
        The existing Greenwood AutoZone is on U.S. 31 South, just south of Smith Valley Road. You can see exactly where by using their store locator or searching for AutoZone and Greenwood, IN on Google.
      • Boogie Burger
        Boogie Burger is moving from its location in the heart of Broad Ripple to a spot beside Khoury's on the East side of Broad Ripple.
      • Carmel Question
        Are both new establishments in Carmel going in at 110 W. Main?
      • Time To Make the Donuts...
        Does anybody know what is happening with the Dunkin Donuts that burned down on Rangeline Road in Carmel? The other shops have been coming back to life but there hasn't been any movement on the DD location. Any more definitive word on how that fire started and took hold?
      • Cannoli Queen is the Real Deal
        Hey "Not Italian",

        No need to question the authenticity - Lisa (Gogliettino-Palumbo)Snow knows her way around the kitchen. I've been to their home for dinner and it was wonderful.

        Cannoli Queen catered Dan Snow's retirement party and it was clear that Lisa knows how to take her cooking on the road.

        One of the things that I like about their business model is that they are including "heat and serve" take-out family meals that can be picked-up on the way home from work.

        It's high quality food that you can feel good about serving when you don't have time to cook.
      • More frozen yoghurt
        and look for Orange Leaf self-serve frozen yoghurt to open additional locations around central Indiana --first store opened in December 2010 is located on 146th Street in Carmel --new locations to the NW; West and South.......soon
      • AUTOZONE
      • Potbelly
        Potbelly is on schedule to open on May 3rd in the old Quizno's location on the circle.
      • Scotty's - Columbus
        Huh. I suggested to Scotty via Twitter that Columbus would be a good market more than a year ago. He wrote back, suggesting that it was too small of a market and that they were looking to expand into markets like Chicago.

        Glad to hear he apparently rethought his business model. Restaurants like Scotty's are a dime a dozen in Chicago. It'll be a hit in Columbus... if they don't bring their downtown Indy prices with them.
      • V's Barbershop
        Seems like that would be a better fit downtown......I'm hoping they open one!
      • Scotty's Columbus
        He doesn't own it. Apparently, it's another deal like Scotty's Lakehouse which he doesn't own. Someone else is opening it and paying him a small management fee to use his name and menu. Sad that someone would pay him to open a generic, gimmicky place like that instead of opening a place focused on quality and service.
