    Wallabys?

    Sorry if there is already a thread about this but I just didn't have time to look for one. But has anyone else heard that wallabys is going to be moving to Somerset in north Ames and opening a rooftop bar? Someone told me this over the weekend and I have no idea if there is any truth to it or not so I thought I would check with all of you.

    Had not heard that. It would be a good move, imho. That place could use a change of scenery. That whole area over in West Ames is in a pretty sorry state, and they could use a new building. Might even do better in the Sommerset area.

    Interesting. I always liked Wallaby's, but it's not like that converted Happy Chef location is anything special.

    This. They could definitely do with a better bar area and more space.

    Yea, it's pretty sad over there the last time I was in Ames. Has the development out further west basically killed the older stretch on Lincoln Way?

    Yeah, and for a business that has the potential to make a lot of dough off of the lunch crowd, there are not a lot of big employers over there now that McFarland Clinic moved so many employees to another location. Sommerset is growing, is in a more affluent area, and probably has just as many, if not more, (judging by the crowds at El Azteca) people in the lunch crowd.

    I also heard of plans to relocate to Somerset, but it was just mentioned in passing, no concrete source.

    This would be a good move for Wallabys. There current location is a dump.

    Don't know about the rooftop bar part, but they are deffinatly moving to North Ames. Went in last week after the game and was talking to the owner.

    Re: Wallabys?

    This would certainly be interesting. First I've heard of it and not sure where they would be located in Somerset as there really isn't much commercial-zoned land left up there.

    I heard they might be moving north, but nothing more specific. Possibly a new location in North Grand Mall area.

    Must be moving closer to Gilbert so Fred doesn't have to drive so far when he wants to get dinner there.

    Re: Wallabys?

    That would be a good move for them. I always liked it when I went, but the location was kind of drab and just not where you would expect a place like that.

    Put them out in Summerset and you easily have one of the top places in town.
