Welcome home?

Dan's out of town, so it's just me, Todd, holding down the apocalypse here. I've started a proposal for admission to Bloomfield Garfield Corp. in their Penn Ave. Arts building giveaway, which isn't really a giveaway but more like a sweepstakes for the best redevelopment idea. The winner gets the privilege of buying the building or going back home. The walk-through is next Thursday, Sept. 18. Sara's coming with me, and so is our friend Michael from the Big Idea, the radical bookstore where Dan and I both volunteer; it might relocate to Penn Ave. if this looks promising. Everyone deserves a new home.
But what's home when you're on poster tour, or stuck working at Whole Foods?
Maybe we just need to go home to Pap's and take a break.
This space is directly across the street from Spak Bros., the new, vegan-friendly pizza shack in Garfield. I really like the owners there, but I'm not impressed with their vegan fare, mainly because it's made me sick the two times I've eaten it. So maybe we'll be living across from Spak Bros. with a subscription to Adrian's in Bloomfield. I think it's worth the walk, especially if I don't get sick from it.
More updates soon...
