So, I'm still wondering....

If the new museum is to attract all these people why hasn't a savvy restaurant owner snatched up either of the vacant ICONs, the River Station or Old Chicago spaces?  Seems like one would have a lot of potential customers.  Hmmmm...maybe the museum's hours aren't conducive to restaurant business?  Or the customers (kids on field trips) aren't their clientle?  There isn't a skywalk to the restaurant which is deemed a necessity for success in another downtown venture?  Or maybe a savvy restaurant owner doesn't believe the projected numbers.

Yea, Kevin, this museum may be the boondoggle that tops 'em all. I've noticed, unless I've missed it, that there hasn't been a lot of post-grand opening coverage. We're going to be paying for this one for a loooong time.
