I would argue that there are not many vacant buildings along King st.

How many do you think there are?

And BTW, a recent article in the Spec counted as many as 74 restaurants downtown, and I can assure you that they are busy during events.

I know, I go to downtown events and to many of those restaurants.

So I would say your assertions are incorrect.

Honestly, you are missing out on some of the other events you mention, and on the best selection of restaurants this city has to offer.

And of course a WH stadium will make a difference. Any time you draw a quarter of a million people downtown, it can only help. It's ludicrous to suggest that all the quarter million will go straight to the game, and then straight home. That just won't happen with all the downtown has to offer.

Again, you say you go straight to an event and straight home, so you don't know how busy downtown can be during events. I know otherwise, because I'm one of the many that patronizes the downtown. I see it myself. There are times I can't get a seat and must go elsewhere.

So if you're not hanging around downtown as I am, how can you profess to know what's going on there?
