Plans filed for restaurant/retail on South Iowa site once proposed for Olive Garden

If you aren't familiar with the Olive Garden, it's a magical Tuscan mirage where people gather to plunge face-first into troughs full of chicken Alfredo and participate in an eternal breadstick and salad parade.

Duo has plan to convert Teller's into gastropub with heavy emphasis on craft beers; Papa Murphy's opens with special event for Boys and Girls Club today

The term gastropub, a portmanteau of gastronomy and pub, originated in the United Kingdom in the late 20th century. I like them if they are done well. I like Free State but Schlafly in St Louis is even better imho.

Chutney's Indian restaurant set to open on Monday; burrito madness in downtown Lawrence

OK yeah there was New York Burrito and Chipotle for a while, Q'Doba and Chipotle for a while and now this but I think Freebirds stands a better chance, they have a lot of different options even though most people here seem to have written it off. Different size and style of tortilla, options other than just burritos, etc. Their branding is stupid but I stopped holding that against places once Fuzzy's opened.

Lawrence veggie burger company to move into new production plant near 23rd and Haskell

Sad that the classiest and best smelling business at 19th and Haskell is no more, if you would've been able to buy veggie burgers retail next to a liquor store that would have been the ultimate Lawrence strip mall.

Rumor mill running wild about possible changes at Lawrence Athletic Club

Seriously, it's not funny, I'm not offended, just not laughing at them, ever. I come here to read about new businesses in town, don't need the "take my wife, please" humor.
