Cick and print picture of fair lady.
Sooo. I know it doesn't count to just say go over to Urban Jacksonville and read about what to do this weekend. Yes its cheating but there are so many good blogs now. My personal favorite for daily content is probably JaxCal. Solid.
So here is a few random thoughtses:
1. Hillary should stay in because everywhere she goes she is making sure people know where their polling places are, when to leave work, what to do with the kids, and they are definitely registered and ready. Go Hilz. Thanks for playing.
2. I threw a jam on the river every saturday from Memorial Day to Halloween on no budget.
But it had bikes and produce and bboys. It wasn't bad. It didn't cost much. It was on the water. A public part of the mighty mighty St. Johns called the riverwalk. Sometimes it was tropical stormy, sometimes dead and hot, sometimes green monstery, and sometimes scary packed (FL/GA especialy). I think if you are going to throw a jam it should be cheap, inclusive, and try to directly benefit stakeholders and retailers (especially if they pay for it). Total cost? Less than $2k per. I got WJCT and Folio to double the ad buy as sponsors but had to go through a complicated process to not have to spend my $20k on every single media. Including sworn tesitimony. Because, you know, the city really watches these things.
3. I am really enjoying my job. Sorry if I haven't called you or emailed you. Text is better. But tell me who you are. Big job update when things slow down. Everything else is still on. If you need an update about the grocery (its coming I swear) check this site often. It will open before the publix in san marco. Or the courthouse. Or the shipyards. But maybe not 3rd and Main.
Go with it.
4. Don't forget June 4th Art Walk. Its the biggest in the South.
Also, don't forget August 16th you must be in Springfield.
