Top 10 possible uses for the Rio Nido Inn

Now that the Rio Nido Inn has been shut down & boarded up, & the sales price is dropping daily, we can start speculating on all the exciting possibilities for this unique & historic site:
  1. Rio Nido House of Horrors: A year-round roadside attraction
  2. Ecologically sustainable termite farm
  3. Utopian experiment in communal living for drug addicts & ex-convicts (oh, wait, that's been done)
  4. Future site of the world-famous Methamphetamine Museum
  5. Rio Nido Home Owners Association Country Club with spa, fine dining, & valet parking
  6. RRROC-funded Rio Nido Community Grow-Op/Friendly Neighborhood Dispensary
  7. Sanctuary for feral cats and off-leash pit bulls
  8. Tattoo/"Massage" parlor (oh wait, we already have one by the Hacienda Bridge)
  9. Coffee shop (we'll need stimulants now that we've lost our biggest meth lab)
  10. Skateboard park
But seriously, what would YOU propose for the site of the Rio Nido Inn now that it's going, going, gone! Please use the COMMENTS link to post your suggestions! You're also welcome to post suggestions for my previous top-10 list, see You know you're a river rat when ...

I look forward to hearing from you!

All the folks in Rio Nido seem to be sick from drinking too much kool aid. This all seems to be a joke about the Inn and the fate of it all. Grow up people~Best thing to do is doze it down and open a zoo. The Inn sticks out like a sore thumb and no one is doing anything with this property. Looks dumpy just as when Friedman owned it. Worse in fact. DO SOMETHING SOON !!
