    The new pedestrian tunnel under Trinity opens up some interesting possibilities. The dirt lots over there are, at least in my view, an almost tragic under-utilization of prime acreage. That whole area just makes a ton of sense to hold street-facing businesses with parking decks behind or underneath.

    Historically the issue is you don't want hordes of people crossing Trinity, but the tunnel takes that concern away. And with townhomes eliminating some of the old lots nearby, now is the ideal time to think about adding density. Throw some businesses in front or above the decks, and boom.

    I think Centennial Authority would be pretty nimble. They're basically a development board by nature, and some of the key figures there have probably been thinking about this for 20 years.

    NC State's been dabbling in property development over on Centennial Campus for the past few years, putting up a lot of residential and scientific buildings through outside parties. They have a whole office of real estate now, which I would assume is the group that would represent the University in these plans.

    Not quite as sure about how the state government figures in. The lots I mentioned above are Fairgrounds property and that gets into a whole different set of rules. There are already some light-commercial elements on the Fairgrounds, but what we're talking about would be a whole different animal. I suspect the state government will be the straggler in these conversations.

    Part of the challenge with all of this is lining up the various governing bodies... there are a lot of chefs in the kitchen.

    Just put up a tower of parking decks at Cardinal Gibbons and have everyone walk over. That’ll really open up the possibilities!

    I've had MOD. It's fine. I've never met or heard of a single person that would consider it their favorite anything.

    I've never heard of MOD before seeing this thread. Sounds like I'm not missing much but the logo doesnt even look slightly familiar to me

    Mod is good. Same as Blaze. It’s .... fine. I’ve never had bad pizza, it’s all the same to me anyway.

    this is obviously Mod-funded.

    One state got it right. One state needs to be given to Canada.

    I like Blaze and I've never heard of Mod.

    Granted, the main reason I like Blaze is I can get the toppings I want without "contaminating" the rest of the pizza for the family.

    Also, CT and Popeyes??

    Have never heard of MOD pizza before. Looks disappointing.

    That’s exactly what Mod does. It’s the Subway of pizza. Pick and choose what you want.

    The Twitter thread is hilarious. Everybody dunking on mod pizza, and wondering how Tim Hortons can be the most popular fast food chain in Alaska when there are no Tim Hortons in Alaska, and wondering how In n Out can be the most popular in Nebraska when there is no In n Out in Nebraska.

    They got it right for Cackalack, though.

    Yes, unlike the rest of the pizza places where they don’t let you pick your toppings.

    I think Pizza Nazi joint with very strict but delicious recipes would be success.

    "I make my pizza for living. You turn my pizza into shit. And you presume tell me what topping I put in my pizza? Leave my shop now."

    Wasnt there also a Seinfeld where Kramer and Newman wanted to open a pizza place that let you top your own pie?

    And they say that the show was about nothing. They were one pneumatic disease short of accurately depicting our life in 2020.

    I actually prefer MOD over most other pizza places. Its not super greasy, which tends to be a problem with most other places, and combining it with GrubHub or Doordash, its the best pizza delivery around here for us.

    I mean there's basically some higher end Neapolitan places that are like that, and can't say I blame them, they do legit excellent stuff.

    There's a place like that in Atlanta (Antico, very highly regarded), and honestly it just pisses me off more. How hard would it be to take the technique and quality that you're putting into your broccoli rabe, mushroom, calabrian chili, whatever pizza and just make me a damn good pepperoni one?

    Anyway, self centered post time but f*** it. This is f***ing Raleigh. We need to get a quality tap room if not a satellite brewery in there when/if this is built up and developed.

    If only there was a preexisting relationship around which such a venture could be anchored. Perhaps to brew something on site for use in the stadiums?
