Downtown is coming of age.

One of the things limiting acceptance of Downtown Dallas as a place of residence is the lack of infrastructure. If you still have to jump in the car or grab a taxi to, say, buy a book, you may as well live in the 'burbs.

Well, things are certainly moving in the right direction, finally. CVS just opened a street level pharmacy on Main Street. One previously had to go underground and the tunnels closed at 6 pm daily and completely on weekends. Not very convenient for residents, and originally designed to accommodate the tens of thousands of commuters to Downtown jobs.

Also on Main, Jason's Deli is due to open in about a week. Let's hope they decide to stay open after dark and on weekends. Enchilada's moved up from the tunnels a month or so ago and are doing a booming business on Elm Street.

The most exciting news, though, is the announcement that Barnes and Noble will be opening a store in the old Kül location on Main.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
