Jax River Jams-Concert Series In April
« on: February 12, 2021, 08:54:43 AM »
Looks like a good attempt by DVI to activate the old Landing site. Also should be a good test run to find out what does/doesn't work on the site and help guide the redesign of the space. Will be interested to see what kind of headliners they are able to get.



"Coming this spring, enjoy a free, four-week concert series on Downtown Jacksonville’s scenic riverfront. National headliners and local and regional openers to be announced. Browse the Small Business & Artist Market, enjoy onsite food trucks and bars with local craft beer and spirits."

"onsite food trucks and bars"..... you mean like the restaurants and bars that were already there before the demolition?  We paid $25M for food trucks and beer tents.

So you are saying that wasn't $25M well spent? /s

Well... the food truck eats are much more palatable than what passed for food at the Landing
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

True story. And the sad part is, the food trucks wouldn't have to even be very good to accomplish that feat!

Just put them along the edge of the Riverwalk - no need to pump them out.  What?  Oh, we stopped doing that years ago? Never mind.

except of course that the Landing regularly hosted food truck rallies

nvm that the Landing also had live music every week - and hosted concert series (often country)

There is something soothing about spreading a blanket on the ground after a solid week of rain.  Thanks Lenny!

Public Waterfront Property.

Highest and Best Use.

Demand.

Inclination.

Without Shad, on the heels of Lot J See Ya! Round One.

As innovative, and limited..... as the Model A Ford..... and perhaps as influential.

If not, many alternatives.....
