What About Long Time Businesses on South Lamar?

Some of the businesses that were overlooked on your "map" have been in place for a long time. Some of these small businesses have struggled through development, rising rents, and greedy landlords to stay viable on South Lamar. Those of us that are in this category might resent your reviews and spotlights of the "new and cutesy" instead of the mainstays. How about a feature that talks about the real struggles that have gone on in the last 3-5 years on this road?

And you forgot SoLa?

Coral Smith's fashion boutique, SoLa, has been a fixture on South Lamar at the Mary St. split for over a decade and even gave the neighborhood its nickname--which has been co-opted by several other businesses in the area. The omission of SoLa from your map of South Lamar is made even more bizarre by the gaping, empty space between Olivia's and Corner Bar where her shop could/should have appeared. What gives?

Allison Barnwell should look a bit more closely into her history, because the Westgate Mall was there well before Central Market, and well before the 90s. While it might be distasteful, there are those of us that have lived here before 1995.

You Left Pluckers Off????

Very Disheartening. Pluckers opened on South Lamar in 2007, getting rid of a tired Black Eyed Pea ... They were one of the first of the new generation and are probably the busiest restaurant on the entire street. A couple UT guys gone good and you leave them off your exhaustive map. Disrespectful, sorry.
