Residents of New BLVD Apartments Will Never Have to Leave, with Torchy's, The Nodding Donkey and World of Beer Downstairs

BLVD
Rachel Stone at the Lakewood Advocate got the scoop on three new retail outlets at BLVD, the new luxury apartment complex at SMU Boulevard and Greenville Avenue that offers, among many of its amenities, valet trash service, a "sparkling pool and sundeck," and 712 square feet of luxury living for just $1,375 a month.

It's worth every dime when you can go down stairs and pull up a seat at The Nodding Donkey, Torchy's or World of Beer. They've all signed leases for ground-level retail space at BLVD, which is scheduled to open May 1.

World of Beer recently opened its first Texas location in Arlington and pours more than 500 beers from around the world. No booze or food, just brew.

Torchy's taco business started out of a trailer in Austin, and this spot will be its 11th in the state.

This will be the second spot for the Nodding Donkey, which has a busy sports bar scene on Thomas Avenue.

Stone reports that the Prescott Realty Group expects the three spots to be open by the end of the year.

World of Beers and anywhere that serves below average food makes the Nodding Donkey irrelevant. but we're missing the point-

SPARKLING POOL

WHAT THE HECK IS THIS? PERRIER? HOW MUCH WILL THAT COST TO FILL? I CAN FEEL THE BUBBLES ALREADY!!!!

DO saved $100k plus laid off most of the staff and hired soccer moms on the cheap. I don't mind a typo once in a while under these circumstances. be glad they are even still here.

With "tits first Texas location" and "qqth in the state," it's obvious the Observer's careful, detailed journalism is still alive and well.

None of this makes sense. I think its Observer party day.

"World of Beer recently opened tits first Texas location in Arlington and pours more than 500 beers from around the world. No booze or food, just brew."

with qqth, I'm guessing 11th since the q is just below the 1. How are the SMU college kids going to afford living at this complex? When I was in college in the 90's, we were struggling to make $600 in rent for a 2br sometimes.

"New campus-area apartments feature Perrier-filled, sparkling pool." Cuban's lasting legacy, amrite?

Instead of lurking and criticizing, you can always create a Disqus profile, that way if the author would like to reach out to you on ways to improve their writing they'll know where to find you.

The DO saved $100k this year by not supporting the Greenville St. Patty's Day Parade. That money obviously didnt go towards hiring experienced writers.

Damn, can't believe I missed that. I love finding hidden tits.

How do they afford to pay $55,000/yr to go to SMU? 

That's how...

Why does the author have to reach out to any of the readers for ways to improve their writing when a fellow writer/editor or spell-check would suffice?

"Lurking" means reading, I guess? If the author needs to reach out for someone to simply look over the article ONCE before hitting "submit" and therefore spotting easy errors like "tits" and "qqth," I'm willing to bet there are plenty of area college students looking for internships.

Everyone makes mistakes; that I understand. But when your job is to write blog articles, re-reading it ONCE is not out of scope for the job. Relax, P1. Norm is on right now.

You stay out of this, Brian.

Hey now. Most of the same writers they've always had, give it a break. I'm sure the Observer writers can make the time to sit in the cubicle next to you at work and criticize you if you need them to. That's after they have a few beers of course.

my sarcasm doesnt exude in my posts the way I wish it would.

Yeah you can. I got drawn offisides with too much time on my hands. I'm going to stay gay though and let it sit there rather than edit it and take it down. I'll take my lumps.

just pointing out the obvious- of course the P1 is defending poor grammar and bloggers.

It's pretty easy actually. I think some people call it multi-tasking.Stories come into my rss feed and I have two big ass screens. Your replies to my comments hit my email and BAM I find myself back here. My short story is simple. A dedicated group of sports fans used to come here daily for the Sportatorium, to feed our thirst for sports on the local level and to share our thoughts. Most of it was nutkicking the columnist in correcting facts, stereotypes, or whatever else he fucked up on that day. The Observer decided to get rid of sports in their blog and print sections, well, at least not pay anyone to do it anymore. We've gravitated to this blog primarily, but you'll also see us in Unfair Park as well. We might see you here one day, and not comment for a week or a month or a year(bad bad sentence construction there). In that sense we see you as a troll or lurker, just popping in to snipe at an opportune time. You look at me as someone that has nothing better to do and that spends all day here, which is not the case. I'm usually pretty hit and run-ny unless a subject piques my interest. I was done with this subject fairly quickly but you keep coming back. Maybe you'll start spending more time here but you probably won't. Thanks for stopping by.

Im out! Good talk P1. Be careful not be drawn offside so easily next time.

You're so right. All this time I've been doing it the British way because, well, it looks better. MLA, AP, and Chicago style will never change methinks.

Glad you caught that. At least you did one thing right today. Judging by your profile of comments, likes and replies you spend quite a bit of time on here. Are you yourself a DO volunteer? How would anyone have this much time to work AND play comment moderator?

Aaaaaand P1 locks it up with an Oxford comma. What is this world coming to?!?!

No such thing as a free lunch. Well, except if you're a part-time writer for DO.

AP style, my friend. The comma goes inside the quotation mark.

Let's all consider my point missed here. TGIF.

Proofreader is one word. Your compensation is likes, replies, or nutkicks. So bring your ego, thick skin, and wear a cup.

TheRealDirtyP1

Really? Is it grammatically correct to use all caps in words?

And by the way, "qqth," should be "qqth",I also think that sentence you used it in is a run on, but grammar wasn't my best subject obviously.

So consider me a "volunteer proof reader" then. I expect to receive no monetary compensation or free lunches.

The authors to this blog aren't full time, some of them are lucky if they get their meals reimbursed. They write to write, but still have deadlines to meet and noone to edit their work. I'll cut them slack, when someone identifies an error whether grammatical or factual, it's usually corrected. This is a "blog", not print. If you want to nitpick a blog, go ahead.

Well, I appreciate that, RealDirtyP1. Your guidance and support through all of this has certainly been a "safe place." I was told multiple times tit was my best typo ever. So, guess it wasn't so bad after all. For the record, you're right, no such a thing as a free lunch here. Nevah. Don't want 'em.

Never be afraid to write about tits Lauren, that's all I ask of you. This is your safe place.

For future reference, your sarcasm would have remained intact had you not explained your college woes.  That made you sound too sincere.
