Skeeter Barnes is no more. Not only has the restaurant closed (boo!) but the building has been bulldozed as well. I'm going to miss that place.
But enough mourning. The rumor mill says a Chick-fil-a is going into that spot. Apparently that's super exciting. The whole CFA experience is a bit underwhelming to me, but to each their own. But that's just a rumor anyway, so don't get your hopes up.
Speaking of rumors, maybe they'll put a Costco in there. It's a nice, in-town location that's much easier to get to than the Sam's on 87th. Lincolnites would go nuts for a Costco.
Or maybe a Cheesecake Factory or PF Chang's. I could see either one of those going over well. Lincoln's average BMI would shoot up a full point within a year.
Or heck, as long as we're dreaming, maybe the City Council will end its decades of anti-competitive policies and we'll wind up with a nice 24 screen theater. If there's anything Lincoln needs, it's more places to buy $6 Junior Mints.
It could happen.
