    Close proximity to Silverglades is a definate plus.

    I'd live downtown, but it seems like you can't find anything thats nice for less than $700-$800 per month. Thats way out of my price range, unfortunately.

    Well I am glad they love it 'cause I went and signed a lease last night at the Renaissance. It was more than I wanted to spend, but I wasn't finding much cheaper. It is going to be so nice to walk to work in 10 minutes.

    I'm getting ready to spend my first night in my new place. I will be sleeping on an air mattress that doesn't hold air very well. It's been a good night so far. Ordered pizza with my girlfriend for dinner since I have nothing in the fridge yet.

    Kudos to you for moving downtown. I'd love to see the area get revitalized, and I think more people living there and taking pride in the area can only help.

    I'm currently renting on the edge of downtown Denver, and we're thinking of buying there in a year or two. The downtown is in better shape than downtown Cincinnati, but could use a few key things like a GROCERY STORE.

The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Yeah, that is my major complaint here. I will be doing all of my grocery shopping up in Oakley since my girlfriend lives up that way. There might be something a little closer, but the Meijer up there is really nice.

    Yeah -- it amazes me that the city is home to the corporate headquarters of a major grocery store chain and they can't find some way to lean on them to put a store downtown.

    There's a Kroger on Vine Street ... between Central Parkway and Liberty Street. So, technically in Over-the-Rhine, I guess.

    If another chain put one in, you can bet Krogers would follow. They have never been led by any other thought than driving their competition into the ground; it probably doesn't make sense to them to open a store for any other reason.
