[VIS] Re: [VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

For anyone interested, the steelwork for the transfer floor, Level 11, is starting tomorrow morning. Might be worth keeping an eye out for as it involves some quite ...

Speaking of Westpac, it is amazing how much more of an impression that Adelaidean makes at ground level on Frome Road compared to what Westpac does on King William. It makes sense given that Wetspac doesn't directly front a main road, but even so I didn't expect the difference to feel quite that pr...

Can the AO lovers and haters PLEASE stop bickering with each other. It got boring ages ago. This thread is meant to be about the hotel not whether we like the design of the oval canopy or if we should build another grandstand over the hill. Can we please stick to discussing the hotel? Aren't we doi...

Is there nobody on Sensational Adelaide with even the slightest level of influence on Adelaide City Council or State Government decision making? Not one person? Anyone? If it's you, and you're reading this now... what the fuck is your problem? You have an army of researchers and place-makers at you...

I don't see the complaint about food and drink prices. It's no different to pricing at any other captive venue or event, and it should just be assumed there's some kind of premium on them. Comparisons between other stadiums on who is 10 or 20c cheaper/dearer for a pint and some hot chips is dumb, a...
