Arizona Republic:  “It’s not that downtown Phoenix is a ghost town. . . . But few people linger.  The city hopes to change that on Friday. With a bowling alley.”  Here’s my favorite part of the story:

“In Phoenix, city officials and CityScape developers hope the bowl-o-rama will anchor the $900 million project with work lunches, evening corporate events and late nights out for 25- to 45-year-olds.”

What will Phoenix do next to revitalize jump-start downtown Phoenix night life – open a bocce ball facility or a bridge / canasta parlor?

Update:  Pipe dreams for a vibrant commercial downtown Phoenix meet reality – “Two downtown Phoenix restaurants close.”  The now defunct downtown Phoenix restaurants are Downtown Sports Grill near Washington and Second streets and Carmine’s Little Italy.
