Bark & Wine: Art for the Animals

I've been a slug lately, but am planning on attending the opening reception for "Bark & Wine: Art for the Animals" this Friday. Can't miss it, some of my favorite things will be there: groovy and colorful art by pet-loving artists, music and wine, all for ten bucks. The Animal Shelter Foundation, Inc. is the benefactor.

Since I don't have any fur-children of my own, I gonna have to see if there's an image of one I need for my pad. The exhibit will be available for FREE viewing June 29 - October 1, 2007 at the Animal Service Center.

More info can be found on the Tally Government Web site:

Laugh Often and Much: The Tallahassee Comedy Zone is Almost Here!

Over the past month or so, I've noticed storage units outside the Chinese-looking building which will house the Tallahassee Comedy Zone. I've seen people go in and out and there's even a porta-potty in the parking lot today.

I was sooooo happy to get this comment today. The Tallahassee Comedy Zone is opening next week, July 7. So add one more cool thing to do in the Capital City. Have to say, next would have been my ninth wedding anniversary, so going somewhere for a few laughs would be a great diversion.

I hope they have improv and hope they'll be offering improv classes. I'm sharing a secret, on my life's to-do list, being on stage doing comedy is one of them. We'll see if it happens in Tallahassee...

Anyway, check out the site, looks like they're giving away tickets during the grand open.

Spam I Am Not (and I Like Blueberries)

June's been a wild month and I can't wait for it to be over. Vacation out West rocked. (Photos are still being uploaded) but searching for "other opportunities" has drained me. Anyway, I went to make this post but Blogger had this blog locked as a potential spam blog! Long story short, Blogger has now verified this is NOT a spam blog so I can go on my merry way to posting...

And what do I have to say? Well, it's blueberry season so ya better get pickin! One of the first things I did when I moved to Tallahassee two years ago was go blueberry picking. Somehow I missed blueberry season last year and was determined not to miss it this year. So, off I went this morning to Beare's Berries in Havana (7858 Havana Highway, Havana, FL 32333, Tel: 850 539-5346).

Was told the bushes had been picked over but to reach high in the bigger bushes. About an hour later, I left with four pounds of luscious little berries and a few spiders in my hair (yuck!). If you head over to Beare's Berries, call to make sure they have berries, bring some bug spray if you can't tolerate bugs, sunscreen and water.

Not sure what I'll be doing with them but read on that this Tuesday, June 26, there's a blueberry wine making workshop at New Leaf Market. Begins at 7:30. Don't think I have enough blueberries to make wine but should be interesting.

Since it's been a while, enjoy a recent article I wrote called, "Guide to Trashy Tallahassee: Three Must-See Attractions."
