    Drove past today and saw some furniture coming in and out of the building, but no signage or other obvious updates.

    Hey, guess which thread with dozens of posts in the past week was not included in the weekly CU e-mail blast?

    This one!

    Anyone remember this article from Columbus Business First?

    http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/blog/2014/08/betty-s-by-osu-open-24-7-liz-lessner-keeping-open.html

    It is less than three months old. Are plans for a 24/7 Betty’s more or less likely than the sale and re-opening of the Jury Room?

    Strange that when I brought this Jury Room thread up with friends the first thing they asked was, “So, do you suppose Walker’s editing it for content already?”

    Coming to agreement on some of the people, events, and ideas at hand could be a starting place. Liz has usually been outspoken at best and blunt at worst. The CU has usually moderated the fine line between news, a positive tone, and trolls-be-trolling. The Jury Room is in transition after struggling financially for at least 6 months, if not 2 years. Employees are the heart and soul of any business, and paying them is probably second only to rent in priority of expenses.

    It seems from the outside that 2014 is a major turning point for Liz Lessner. The fact that this turning point is happening to someone who has long held the spotlight means that many people have been moved to comment. Hard to say if it is for good or ill, and how it will impact CFL long-term.

    There has been a decline in many of the CFL restaurants since Liz moved from being an Operator to an Owner. It seems like the CFL restaurants that have a strong, day-to-day presence from additional partners (Surly Girl, Tip Top) have faired better than those that do not. Dirty Franks must be the safest bet long-term because the menu should have the lowest food-cost of any place (hot dogs, buns, nacho cheese, beverages).
