    An expanded La Brea and an Earl on either end of Downtown Disney? (resisting obvious groaner) Somewhat different markets, but La Brea can’t be too enthused about this.

    What is the latest on the opening? We’re heading down for the Destination D event next week and I’m assuming the Earl is open?
