Keeping Cool in Tally

The hot, humid days of a Tallahassee summer are here. This summer marks my second anniversary living and working in Florida's Capital City. It's been an interesting ride, to say the least.

Getting caught up on things, last week's Bark & Wine seemed to be a success. I "heard" the Animal Service Center was anticipating around 50 people and from what I saw, there were well more than that. The wine tasting byKillearn Liquors & Fine Wine was fun, the wines had either animals names or animals on the labels, to fit with the event's theme. Wines like Porcupine Ridge Sauv Blanc from South Africa and Arrogant Frog Chardonnay from France were served.

Although it was hard to reach the catered food provided by Saucy, it was probably some of the best catered food I've tasted in a while (and I mean outside of Tallahassee, too). Most of the ditties were vegan and I can't remember a single thing, other than it was really tasty.

The artwork ranged from colorful and abstract to classical. Many great pieces are on display (and for sale) now through Oct. 1, 2007.

I received an email from someone asking me about my blueberry picking adventure two year s and if I'd remembered where I went. I replied and discovered this weekend Publix has five containers of blueberries for $10. I'm all for manual labor to pick my own stuff but when it's easier to pick it up in the grocery store than off a spider-infested bush, I'm going with the grocery store!

I see that the Comedy Zone Tallahassee is now open, has anyone been yet?

Sharing a few things brought to my attention lately which I think are pretty cool: If you're the total recluse (or just don't feel like leaving the house for an evening), order a meal from area favorites like Po' Boys and Bella Bella and have it delivered to your door. Pretty cool.

Are you a creative living in Tallahassee? The Council on Culture & Arts is asking all the creative-types to fill out this survey ( as part of the Artspace Project to study the needs of the cultural and creative community.

Oh! And those paintings posted around the Lake Ella area, I think I MAY be a step closer in figuring out where they're from (still clueless about why). When I was at Railroad Square a couple of weeks ago, one was posted there, maybe it's a trail leading to Railroad Square? But what's the connection?

And if you're trying to save a few bucks here and there, here's my latest article about free things to do in Tallahassee.
