The grapevine told me two interesting things today:
1. UBS is staying put! The Hour and quite a few others report that UBS will accept a $20M "forgivable loan" - which I think is code word for a gift - in exchange for sticking around for five years and keeping at least two thousand jobs in the state. I hope that "in the state" means in Stamford proper, but the article doesn't actually say. They'll take in more dough if they bring in more jobs too. Lord only knows what would have happened if UBS had left us at the altar, so I'm glad we'll keep going steady for at least the next little bit.
2. Macy's is getting a facial. My buddy, TK, tells me our downtown Macy's is getting a power wash. She saw it in the works and reported that it was already looking spiffier.
