    All the avocado talk found me at the grocery and buying a hass just yesterday. The power of food.

    That's the world we live in today. Everything sucks! Pissing and moaning on the internet is now an art form.

    That said, this is definitely an upgrade over the old place.

    I’ve never really watched the Today Show before seeing it in the cafe. I just like to actually hear what I’m staring at on a screen. Since I’m often eating alone at the parks, it was a nice change of pace to have something to watch while enjoying my breakfast. And it was mostly fluff. It was nice. And I’m always working when it’s on normally, so was neat to watch it while out at the park.

    If NBC Sports Grill and Brew can show sports for people to enjoy, I see nothing wrong with a little cafe showing a morning show as well.

    Congratulations Alicia. You’ve now been promoted to basic. Grab a big hat, some booties w/ jeans and head down to Magnolia.

    When the Today Show isn’t airing live, are they just airing Today Show clips? Or are they showing NBC live?

    They should show old episodes of the Today show when it isn't live. By old I mean stuff from back in the 80's-90's. That would be fun.

    They can do the same, outside of the show's regular morning hours, as they do with Fallon. Fallon's highlights are pretty entertaining.

    I imagine they would default to past episodes if this were the case

    I was thinking it would be cool if they did a remix of the best segments of all time, with new introductions filmed to splice them together. IDK if the question of licensing would come up, like with people no longer with the show. Sprinkled in the mix could be segments done in the parks too.

    Also for the live broadcast what do they do for commercial breaks, do they play something else instead?

    They could just run time lapse of Al Roker's weight loss concluding with the clip where he talks about pooping his pants at the White House:

    They seem to play the national feed NBC commercials during the live show. But they do replace the local weather segments with a special one Al Roker did just for Universal.

    "Well, it's thunderstorms all day. Why'd you pick today to go to the parks?" - Al Roker

    Can't get more immersive than that :lmao:

    Careful, they are sucking you in and you will never rope drop again. Too busy watching the show...... and you know if you dont want to eat alone and I'm in the parks I'm happy to join you for a meal. Gonna be a lot more often now but mostly afternoons as my girlfriend is working swing.

    Expect them to celebrate this thing opening like it’s a new ride. I’ve heard lots of confetti is planned, plus obviously the Today Show being there.
