The Water Cooler: The Old Marie Callender’s Building on Diamond Blvd.

August 19, 2014 12:00 pm · 117 comments

The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it!

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon!

Today’s question:

If you could choose a business to move into the old Marie Callender’s building on Diamond Blvd. in Concord, what would it be?

Talk about it….

And don’t call me Shirley!

Something with booths like the Peppermill.

104 I am surprised that no one August 20, 2014 at 8:43 AM

has suggested Moby Chicks.

Once off the barge, it would be a wonderful place for local entertainment, good food, strong drink and a good time.

Fentons should go there it is so good. And Texas road house.

@ bigbry 101
I’m going to have to counter that with suggesting a “Peters.” What do ya think, ladies? :)

@60 I totally agree! Chain restaurants BLECH. There’s really nowhere to go in Concord for any fine seafood

Okay people be honest..

Look at your waist line and tell everyone we need another crappy restaurant.
I’d say a jungle gym for adults

I heard the the Pot dispensaries are going to team up with Taco Bell and other fast food places.

@What security
I also heard the Taco Bell chain is going to change their name to
“Dub n’ Grub”.

I’ve never been to a Cracker Barrel that served any kind of alcohol.

I miss Numero Uno Pizzeria & Bob’s Big Boy. Why aren’t there any Bob’s up here??? Or, instead of putting Marie Callendar’s restaurant back, how about jut the pies?? A good bakery is what we need.

There used to be a Big Boy on Treat. I loved their strawberry pie.

A jungle Gym for adults! That’s one of the best ideas I’ve ever heard!! With a line of swinging iron rings please!

115 ChampagneKitty August 20, 2014 at 7:49 PM

Silva…a playground for grownups…something like that was in the news recently…not remembering where I saw it…

116 Silva August 20, 2014 at 8:54 PM

Oh how funny! I do think it’s a great idea. And it should be free.

Joe’s Crab Shack or Olive Garden.
