Westgate a failure?

We were lazy tonight and decided to go to Little Saigon for dinner. Not much to say...it was great, as always.

After dinner, I suggested going to Westgate City Center for an after-dinner walk. Patty commented/complained that there is "nothing there", but I decided to go there anyways.

In my opinion, this place seems like a complete retail failure. I understand it's only partially complete but what's currently there isn't at all interesting. If there isn't a sporting event or concert (at Jobing.com Arena or University of Phoenix Stadium), this place is a ghost town. Except for Yard House, I have no idea how the current restaurants and retail stores are surviving.

- minimal people walking around
- retail stores - pretty much empty
- Coffee Plantation - completely empty
- AMC Theaters - looked dead inside and nobody outside

"Entertainment Destination"? We'll see...
