Americana is a gain for downtown Regarding the letter titled “The wrong kind of winter congestion” (Mailbag, Tuesday) I am so sick and tired of the Americana at Brand being bashed at every opportunity. No one will get any facts straight before opening their mouth or before writing a letter. I frequent the Americana every chance I get and use the valet service, and if you validate, it’s free. I spent $3.50 at a coffee shop in the Americana, was there about an hour and a half, walked to Nordstrom, bought a watch and returned to my car, and it cost me a $2 tip. My friend, on the other hand, self-parked and validated, and again parking was free.
