    The facade was removed piece by piece and numbered like legos. Its all wrapped up and sitting back in the abandonded area west of the tracks, west of Betty’s bar, behind Hunington Stadium I think.

    I bought a really nice shiny stainless steel vintage cake carrier at Goodwill for $3 that I am gonna give to my sister since she likes making cakes.

    You’re assuming that these potlucks include invitations to those who really need the food. To me it sounds like they’re just potlucks by freegans for freegans.

    The WP freegan event is publicly announced with a poster in the window facing E. 5th Ave proclaiming free food.

    Freegans are a tiny group. I doubt that they are pushing poor people out of the way as they dive. Given their philosophy, I would guess they frequent the dumpsters in the higher income areas where the food would be landfilled without doubt if they didn’t snag it.

    Yeah the Food not Bombs folks are poor too. And that notion that Freegans take food from “those who really need it” is totally ridiculous. They used to do Food not Bombs at the Main Library, but moved to spore I think once they got a brick and mortar building.

    Matthew wrote Freegans would love Trader Joes. That place fills the dumpster up often with overstock sometimes unexpired food. (I have an inside source)

    That’s been known for years! Thanks though!

    Coremodels wrote That looks AWESOME to me, but I’m a big fan of sloppy breakfasts covered in sausage gravy.

    BTW, is it just me, or did this guy on the blog look like a 12 year old version of CDS Sherman?!?

    Word. It does. About 3 weeks ago I saw an East Asian version of Sherman.

    Does anybody notice that Mac and Jim Sweeney look alike?

    Also, Greenman is a costume in itself whether or not one is familiar with the show.

    Tigertree wrote I think they are putting in a strip mall of drive-through stores there.

    I assume you’re joking?

    I’ve done some fairly extensive searching, but haven’t found any details at all on this.

    I would prefer a central business district consisting solely of vending machine retail. Maybe that creep who build robo-girlfriends can design it.

    Old Cadillac dealership that existed until Steve Germain moved the operation to that monstrousity Benz/Cadillac dealership at Easton.

    No clue what’s going on after the demo?

    enzo wrote It just opened on Monday. It is directly across the street from Metro—

    8 E. Long St. is an address of the big building…maybe they are a tenant. I do beleive it is a bakery of sorts.

    That’s the Atlas Building.

    I’ve been watching some episodes of this on Hulu and I really like it. Its so realistic for a TV show and mirrors contemporary life.

    I was wondering if the set up was due to poor sales over the tour and am sad to hear about the 300 tickets given away at the door to try to fill the stadium. But score! to those who got in free!

    I think she may have only given us 15 of the tickets. I don’t think she gave out the rest. I don’t know. Its not my gig.

    There is a bicycle shop(s) named Roll:, but not Rolls, and I doubt they would open a shop downtown next to B1.

    Why didn’t you investigate further?
