I believe the piano player in question was one Russell Jones. Both he and the venerable Bob Stover played at the L&N Hotel as well as in the piano loft at Copper Cellar.

Thanks for the correction, guys. I couldn't remember, exactly, and asked around. Not an easy thing to research.

Written on Treble Clef Removal Highlights Void in Art Policy :

Yes and no. I live on the 100 Block as well, and so far as I know, there is no "design" for a park. In fact, I remember that the area was specifically excluded from the original public input session regarding the streetscape project.

Yes, the road is being removed. But the city promised an additional input session for what would go there. So far as I'm aware, that hasn't happened yet.

Written on Pimping Out Downtown:

It's reassuring to hear that the MSDA also sees a need for formal policies. The Office of Special Events likewise suggested these are being developed. But there is no evidence to suggest that any public process is being conducted to do so yet. I'm afraid I'll still be hearing this when the next, inevitable, SNAFU occurs. It's passed due.

Written on The One-Year Plan to End Panhandling:

Yeah, the sample script was silly. But I have a friend who actually uses it and I find it amusing.
