Shh. Don’t tell J she was right. I went down to the Speedway on the corner of Cedar and Long Boulevard today to get a frozen Coke. As I was pulling out, I noticed a big , orange coming soon sign in the window of the old Frank’s Press Box South. The place has been empty for as long we’ve been in Lansing, but this fall, J kept trying to tell me there was a lot of cars parked around the empty building. I kept telling her it was over flow from the Holiday Inn (now Causeway Bay Hotel), but she kept saying someone was working on the building.
She was right. I drove up for a closer look after seeing the sign and there was definitely some movement inside. I don’t have any other details other than the place is going to be called “The Venue.” We drive by there pretty much everyday, so when I notice the coming soon sign has been replaced by a grand opening sign, we’ll check it out and see what’s up.
