Tonight I rode past at 10:15 and found dozens of people there. The furniture is set up like a cocktail lounge. Someone's truck was blasting Benny Goodman, and several couples were swing dancing. A good time in the twilight!

[Jay from Parks, are you on here? Let's turn the lights on and sell someone a permit, make it official. I'll talk to the folk society, see if they want to move their swing dances DT.]

And a couple weeks ago I caught these kids at their audition:

Really cool to have this public space that's there and available and utilized in this manner.

I wonder what it would take for somebody like me to be able to officially use that space... if it's feasible maybe I could secure it towards the end of summer or early next year.. :shrug:

Oh wow, thank you greatly for the link... that will probably help me greatly in getting my name out there, and has also opened me up to a few more ideas of what I can do with my performances...
