Sonic Rising

It was a parking lot five weeks ago.  Ground-breaking was October 23rd.  The foundation is in place, and the walls of the new Sonic are now going up.

According to their rep, it takes 75-90 days to build a Sonic.  Figure in an additional ten or fifteen working days for bad weather, and our best guess is that we'll be able to try a local limeade sometime between Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day.

UU Note:  For those who aren't into fast food, remember Uptown's newest restaurant, Loving Heart Vegan Cafe.  And there's also the always lovely, always reliable Urban Vegan.  Diversity, even in your dining options.


  1. It's too bad that they can't put a small police station on the southeast corner of Wilson and Sheridan...

  2. I hope that everyone here gives the owners and managers of this Sonic a fair go though. Who knows, maybe they will have a heavy hand, e good about picking up the garbage that their litterbug customers drop, and provide a real value to the community. I think many people have seen the Sonic ads on TV, and now having the option of going to one may mean a lot of people coming, albeit probably driving, into Uptown.
