I say non-update because he didn't have much to say -- there's nothing new to report, ET is still working on it everyday, and they hope to be able to tell something soon.
UPDATE: I should have mentioned the tax break that ET's received in November, but I haven't heard much from them about that. Ed Bruske of the Slow Cook spoke to Hood in mid-December, and he sounded much more optimistic then. Maybe something has changed since that interview. Here's the interview with Bruske:
"We're making progress. We're working with the developer," Hood said. "We've had this recessionary change, and there's a reluctance on the part of the developer to make any change in the economic structure of the rent... There’s a really good chance we will work it out."
Any issues with getting financing? "We’ve made progress there."
