I asked, you answered — a lot.

Last Friday I wrote about five businesses I've visited in other cities that I'd like to see find a home here in Evansville. Feel free to peruse through them when you have a minute.

Figuring there were more than a few I may have missed, I put the question out there for you to answer on our Facebook page. The answers ranged from more restaurants to specific department stores, to a bar or two, and of course it wouldn't be Facebook if there wasn't one dissenter who chimed in to poo-poo the whole concept. But hey, everyone's entitled to their opinion, this is 'Merica after all, right? U-S-A! U-S-A!

Here's what some of you had to say:

  • Ashley Mabrey - IKEA, Trader Joe's, Cheesecake factory
  • Kim Schaefer DeHart - Howl at the Moon!!!!!
  • Chastidy Mayes - ...TCBY, used 2 be my whip, lol!!
