LGO Reportedly Pulls Out of CityScape

The Arizona Republic is reporting this morning that LGO Public House has pulled out of the CityScape project in downtown Phoenix

Are you surprised?

According to Howie Seftel, LGO is claiming "ventilation" problems in the space they were to occupy. 

In any case, we bet the folks who run La Grande Orange are breathing easy today. Disaster averted? Could be. Let's admit it: The corner of 40th Street and Campbell was a little easier to revive than the center of our non-city.
