I met with Julia Akin, co-owner of Friscos, to get an update on when and where Frisco’s is moving. She said they have until May of 2008 to move out. Friscos and the adjoining car lot will be replaced with a Walgreens. They are in search for a new location. They certainly want to stay in the neighborhood preferably on Burnet Rd but they have not found the right site yet. I suggested the recently vacated restaurant across the street where Dry Dock was. She said she has  already been approached by the Knights about it, owners of Allandale Village, but she’s not interested; not enough parking and its  location back in the corner doesn’t provide the street visibility they’re looking for. She promised to keep us posted. Wherever they move they’d like to bring their customers with them.
