Less than two weeks remain until the annual Exchange Club of Lake Highlands Fourth of July Parade — have you decorated your float yet? Also on this week's podcast, we discuss what goes — and more puzzling, what stays — at Lake Highlands Plaza in the process of turning aging retail buildings into residential homes. Plus, we wonder aloud: Is it fair for the city to spend tax dollars to benefit new projects over existing shopping centers?

Last week Advocate columnist Ellen Raff posed the question, “What do we do here for fun?” We explore that further in this week’s Lake Highlands podcast — there’s the theater, the aquarium, the shooting range (really) and shopping, to name a few.
Our favorite indoor activity, summer or anytime, might be eating, so we also chat about this month’s cover story, “Out of the Restaurant Rut” (if you believe the Lake Highlands area lacks restaurants, think again), and the eateries we can’t live without.

The topic of this week's Lake Highlands podcast is even more on Tom Thumb and Sprouts, which never have been confirmed as the grocers looking to open at the Town Center, even though they are being widely speculated as doing so in real estate circles. We discuss whether the Skillman-Royal Tom Thumb might close regardless of what happens at the Town Center, the ghosts of Tom Thumbs past at Forest-Abrams, and why we can be thankful that Prescott didn't get this project off the ground before the economic downturn.

We've got ourselves a mayoral runoff, and today on the podcast we debate whether money mattered in last weekend's election — and whether it will matter in the upcoming runoff.
