    I know a lot of people have 'sectors' in their town. I am one of these people and my fine dining section only has the gilded truffle so i'll make it work some where near that.

    I made some room for it, its an ugly colored building, like *- green, but in my opinion, in the same shape as the mapple store and channel 6 so i planted it there :lol:

    I don't know I kind of like the retro olive green Sixties South Beach look to the building. It'll be fun making it a good part of my town. It might move. It might not but for now it is where it is. I sure hope in the future someone is able to go there.

    Yes, and more motor vehicles! Mine was just finished this a.m., so I'm looking for inspiration here myself. Tlindfors, wow!

    RJK-That's weird, I didn't realize it had been locked. I was in such a frenzy to make room for the Manor and build it that I actually didn't even see the fountain in the menu for quite a while. The only tasks I was doing at that time were Manor related so I would think it is linked with those. I wish I could be more help, I hope you get it unlocked soon.

    Elsie-I am having a blast with this update!!! :D:D:D

    I figured it was the swanky place that celebrities go to so it should be near KrustyLu and Channel 6. I made a little fancy restaurant spot with it and the truffle with a little valet lane in front.

    I'm not special enough to make the pictures show up here yet, so if somebody else could?

    Could anyone tell me the dimensions of the building? I think I saw someone say it was the same as the Krabappel Apartments but I just wanted to make sure!

    It reminded me of this place http://www.franciscancrabrestaurant.com/, which also has celebrity pictures all over, so I put it next to my river and behind the gated neighborhood that I imagine Brockman and Krusty to live in.

    Man, these shots are great. I built that building this morning. I really like it, but it does seem out of place without real apropos decoration. Maybe they will offer palm trees when the snow goes away. It would be pretty weird if we had palm trees growing out of snow. However, after seeing these shots, I realize I need to get to work.

    Excellent! Thanks a lot, just wanted to double check as they didn't look the same in pictures (although that's obviously down to the different building shapes...)
