What a high-energy event! I went out tonight to check out Yummy and thought I’d get some quick photos of the Garden Theater’s sign lit up. Little did I know that I made it just in time for the countdown. So many people were packed around the outside of the theater, cheering and counting down. It was really exciting. Someone came by and asked me what was going on and if someone famous was over there! I overheard others saying they are so excited for the theater to be reopening and bringing more attention to the north end of the Short North. What a great night for the Short North Stage and Columbus and I can’t wait to see Follies!

Fantastic crowd gathered for the countdown

    Looks great! I imagine Kramer lives in the apartment behind the sign.

    My friend Bob Sakamano lives there, too: he says it’s so green it feels like he’s living in Shrek’s swamp.
    But seriously, the sign looks great.

    Is green the original color?  Great addition to the neighborhood!
