Try our folding puzzle to learn the missing piece. (Hint: It's lying down on the job.)The BayWalk of our dreams
A Starbucks. A bookstore. A karaoke club.

St. Petersburg Times readers offered all sorts of ideas to help rebrand St. Petersburg's struggling BayWalk complex.

Graphic artist John Corbitt took some of the better ones and put them to paper. Call it BayWalk 2.0.

We offer it up as a whimsical guide for bank Wells Fargo, which will officially take ownership of the downtown entertainment complex this month after a public auction Friday failed to produce any bidders.

Gone are the $9 Muvico movie theater tickets, replaced instead by recession-friendly $5 deals.

Browse the bookshop created in Ann Taylor's vacant shell. Catch some laughs at the comedy club, be a star at the karaoke bar, or visit the high-end Italian restaurant with its own dinner theater.

Savor a drink at the new microbrew pub. On your way out, don't forget to grab a snack at Candy Corner.

But none of this fanciful vision is what readers say BayWalk needs most.
