What this town needs is a _________!





The other day my fiancée Erika says: "I truly wish we had a Baja Fresh restaurant here". Apparently the place is a great natural food chain that caters to fresh salad and lite fare lovers like her. I also used tohav a friend who would constantly tell me that “we need a Carrabba’s here in NEPA”! I’ve never been in one but the food in the commercials always looks good, but so do the wings in a Hooter’s ad, and they suck!

Everyone wants different things in their town. We all go through times when we hate our city and want new fun things.  I remember when the ground breaking took place for the Olive Garden and Red Lobster, what an amazing amount of hype surrounded that for me and my then circle of friends… and now years later I don’t think I’ve dined at either one more than 5 times.

How about when the developers of Montage Mt. or Sno Cove came into town? I couldn’t wait to have a concert venue here in NEPA, or a waterpark, yet I still will travel to Madison Square Garden in NYC just as easily as drive to Moosic to see a show, and have never even dipped my toe into the Lazy River once!

So I open up the topic to you now… and ask: "What Does This Town Need?"

I say a beachfantasy yes, but that’s what I want.

We are a mid-size city and we need lots of suggestions of things that the bigger cities around us have but we don’t. Let’s make a city wide wish list. Okay...GO!
