University Heights - not North Park? Normal Heights - not University Heights? Ole Behe? Excuse me? Does anyone actually know what is where?
As for University and/or Normal Heights, or North Park for that matter, becoming like the Gaslamp, I seriously doubt that is going to happen--in any of those neighborhoods! And I hope it never does. Who wants to pay $36.00 for a "medallion of lasagna"?
People need to realize that the Gaslamp pulls a lot of big bucks from the swanky hotels along the harbor, as well as the fat cat residents that live in the condos down there. People who are accustomed to strolling along the harbor side after dinner are not going to feel the same way about El Cajon Blvd. These are very different breeds of cats living in these neighborhoods and I've never agreed with that movie maxim: "If you build it, they will come." Getting them to come has never been the problem; it's getting them to come back. I wish these guys luck with the new place. In spite of the planned expansion, they've still got some big shoes to fill.
