Fountain Square and downtown have been going strength to strength lately and Mynt Martini is no exception. The newest bars keep upping the ante and last week a bunch of us put forth the proposition, has downtown hit a saturation point for new bars?
I THINK NOT
Not when they're minting new ones like this, wild open, comfy and some crazy drinks.
The excitement starts just walking up.
We're twittering away, and who do we see on twittering away at the bar? tstewart2, how crazy is that? But before she can duck out a back door we spot her and drag her back in.
My one complaint may be the lack of manly drinks, the martinis were all fruity, might fall back to beer, who knows.
I got nothing, what ever it was, I was staying out of it?
It was early and quiet, I don't expect them to have much free time standing around once everyone finds out about this cool little place.
And its all steps away from the lady in the fountain, it can't get any better than that.
Which gets me thinking, remember a few years ago, the CAVE* men calling the Fountain Square renovations a boondoggle? It would never bring anyone downtown they said, it was impracticable, unusable, once the newness wore off it would be barren? And now the square is fully built out with hours long waits to get on the ice rink.
Time and time again we see how people sitting out in Anderson Twnshp know nothing about the city or how people consume it.
