IHOP on university?

Postby Ashley » Fri Oct 29, 2010 1:53 pm

Anyone know when the IHOP on University Ave is supposed to open? I can see in the windows that the tables are all set up and there's a "hiring" sign but I haven't seen any "grand opening" signs or anything.

Getting a little antsy for your rooty tooty fresh n fruity? Really they're putting an IHOP in on the U? I remember puking outside the old one back in the day.

It must be going in where the old Starbucks was a little west of Tex Tubbs on University. I drove by earlier in the week and noticed they put a blue roof on that building. I didn't know what was going in there but thought maybe it was going to be a Culver's.

Oh no, not another IHOP on U...maybe since this one is far enough away from all the drunks on foot it won't end up being Thunderdome with pancakes.

All the cops working downtown fucking cheered when the one at U/Bassett closed for good. That place was a colossal goat rodeo after midnight.

Would be nice though to have a sit down late night eatery that isn't tacos. No offense Taco. Milwaukee's Ma Fischers comes to mind.

There was an IHOP near my high school in Nashville, and with friends I whiled away many pleasant, idle 1980s hours there with endless coffee and chat over the syrup caddies. What a pleasant memory. There was an elderly waitress who always said in a thick Music City accent, kid you not, "What can I get you my honey my baby my child?"

They still build NEW iHOP's? I thought they were going the way of the pterodactyl. There are a lot of iHOP-shaped buildings that are now car washes or golf club stores or whatever.

It's like if Chrysler announced they were going to make a new 2012 AMC Pacer.

Not a bad idea actually

If I'm correct in my earlier post, it's not a new construction but a renovation of an existing structure.

The car that looked like the bottom half of a vacuum cleaner. How soon we forget these triumphs of American engineering.

And a perfect match for the blue pointy IHOP roof image.

Thank you Walter, for giving me a clear mental image of what that place was like at night, and for adding a new lexeme to my lexicon.

I was an occasional goat rodeo participant back in the early 80's. Never went there sober or at "normal" hours.
