Here we are again; the weekend. We’ve been a little preoccupied with life, so we’re a tad behind in recent happenings in the ‘hood. Feel free to share any news and/or events that may fit into this post. Otherwise, enjoy the weekend and what tidbits we do have.
– Another weekend, another blank marquee at the Bobwhite. There was a time when the theater was to bring the community together and spur a little growth in our local economy. Well, I’d say we can accomplish those things without the Bobwhite, but it’s a bummer it hasn’t lived up to expectations.
– You still have a couple hours to make it over to Mt. Tabor for the occupation of reservoir #6, which is in response to the city’s decision to cover or close (or replace) open-air reservoirs. Bring your tents…and maybe a gas mask, I suppose. Occupation begins at 5pm.
– As noted earlier, the Foster-Powell Community Garden will be having four work parties over the next month and a half. For some, a community garden may not mean much. But if you dig a little, you’ll see there’s great community interaction and activism going on, and the hard work by those involved benefits the neighborhood a ton. Even the Oregonian has taken notice: check out this article. Kudos to Vicki Wilson for bringing her vision to reality, and plugging away for two years to make it happen.
– More carts on Foster. Pastries and pizzas, respectively. Yes, that’s two; not a combo. Plane Pastries for the sweet; Square Cheese Pizza for the savory. Check ’em out.
– Multi-family garage sale on SE Francis, between 60th and 62nd (I know, that makes 61st…it just happens to disappear on this street).
– And finally, get a cheap meal and help Bar Carlo advertise in the Mercury. It’s a win-win.
