Cheers to the new restaurants! Maxx's is great and look forward to larosas. That parking of 300+ sounds rather complex. It sounds doubtful with all the logistics ahead. That plan I heard has been off/on for a number of years perhaps decades because of the nu Numerous issues and costs involved. Good luck!
