Archive for the ‘Rosewood Drive’ tag
Like the taco cart downtown, the place is something of a victim to the City of Columbia's zoning zig-zags. Regardless of what you think of the place, they followed the rules in place at the time to open, and ever since then the city has been trying to undo that -- which they finally have done. The place has been in court fighting, but lost their last battle at the end of September.
With the upscaling of the area, I don't see a future for this building, and would not be surprised if the next tenant took it down.
According to their Kickstarter for moving info, they lost their lease here, which suggests that something new will be going in fairly quickly. The place has seen something of a revolving door set of restaurants since long term tenant Keg O'Nails moved out.

Update 11 August 2014 -- Here is the new location:
I like this compact two storey house on Rosewood near Beltline, though it is perhaps a little hard to get in and out of.
It was the onetime home of Stan Smith Realty who have moved to Millwood. It looks like the place is off the market though I saw no signs of activity there yet.
UPDATE 27 September 2014 -- It's now a used textbook shop:
Here's a belated notice that Dano's Pizza has moved from the Publix strip mall at Rosewood Center and down the street a bit into the former Ole Timey Meat Market location at 3008 Rosewood. I still have not eaten there, but they already seemed to be doing a good business at the new location the one time I checked it out.
This is the third, and last, suite in the building at 4732 Devine to feature here. You have to wonder, given that every tenant has either closed or moved, if this building is to be torn down or if some new tenant wants the whole building.
One sign says that the store is relocating, but while I hope the employees were able to move, I think this is really just a call-out to an already existing other store.
I believe I still have a pair of shoes from Payless, though I'm not sure it was this store, that have lasted quite a few years. Of course, I only wear them to weddings and funerals, so there has not been a lot of wear & tear.

Another day, another Blockbuster. I guess it's too late to change their pre-printed banners which continue to say This Location Only..
This particular storefront is on the tail-end of Rosewood, in a little strip which has now had the misfortune to have bet on two outlets for now defunct media formats.
UPDATE 26 November 2013 -- Here are some daylight pix:
UPDATE 14 January 2014:
Say Goodnight Gracie.
Local butcher shop Ole Timey Meat Market has moved their Rosewood Drive location from the former Keg O' Nails building to the former Edens Food Stores / bodyFit / Jaime Scott Fitness building a number of blocks east.
As you can see, there is already ongoing work on the 3008 building, so apparently it will not be vacant long.

This location of Eat More Tees was right across from the fairgrounds at the corner of Rosewood & Assembly. According to their door sign, they have decamped for Atlas Road.
The Rolling Stone was the follow-on operation to End Zone Grill on Rosewood just up from the Fairgrounds.
It got some publicity last year for getting into a spat with representatives of the music magazine of the same name over trademark issues. I guess that was settled, as neither the bar nor the magazine changed its name. I never stopped by, but it looks to have had a nice setup, with an outdoor stage and movie screeen and a bonfire pit. I have to say though, that the tree by the front left of the building is by far my favorite feature.
The place has just reopened as a barbecue operation, The Southern Belle.
