Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
Celebrate Cholesterol Day here. Subway 6" BMT on Italian Herbs and Cheese bread, pepperjack cheese, toasted with lettuce, tomato, green peppers, jalapenos & spicy mustard. Bag of Lay's original potato chips & a large Coke to wash it all down. Tomorrow it's back to a cup of yogurt & an apple. I allow myself one unhealthy lunch/week, more if someone else is buying.
A local website designer decided to pull together a free outdoor potluck. I heard about it on the multi-station NPR outlet last night, tracked it down on Facebook. (Posted a query, had a reply within 30 seconds.)
The co-hosts provided turkey and sides. A catering place: tableware. Situated out front of a coffee place, who stocked the pots. And someone brought nametags so that we could more easily interact with our new friends.
In my neon don't-hit-me bike jacket, both the aforementioned NPR station and the local one tracked me down. And the local citizen journalism outlet did a video interview. Slow news day; all the TV stations and a couple of students from the broadcasting classes showed up.
Along with all the yummy chow, a huge pile of bagged food donation sprouted next to the bike rack. (Guessing that my distinctive ride will appear in some of the shots.)
