Rock the Shops!

Well, the Fair on the Square went well-- busy in the morning, but for some reason the crowd slowed down once the temperature started climbing past 85. I can't imagine why. I spent a good chunk of the afternoon holding a cup of iced tea to my forehead and wishing some clouds would float by to give us a break for a little while.

My next show will be the July 11th Fair of the Arts (at the Bloomington farmer's market, 8am-1pm).

In the meantime, there's a very exciting event happening this Friday, June 26th. First of all, the B Line Trail is finally opening! (That's Bloomington's rails to trails project through the middle of town that's been in the works for years now). Hurrah! And the same day, from 5-10 pm, a serious shopping and music event in downtown Bloomington-- Rock the Shops! It's a benefit to try to inject some financial and moral support into the shops that make up the heart of downtown. There's a looonnngg list of musicians and writers who are giving a free concert/readings to lure folks downtown (Carrie Newcomer, Krista Detor, Monika Herzig, and many, many more). Most of the shops on the square will have special deals and festivities of various sorts going on. The music will be centered at the Wandering Turtle, but if you come, be sure to take a thorough mosey around the square. Hope to see you there!
