Tomorrow is the South Pasadena Arts Crawl. Joane Muro has a mobile-making workshop going on at the The Battery between 3 and 9pm. I've been told I cannot dance until I make one.

Okay, so, one last push to the end here. We're shy of the minimum 250 votes needed to be considered for the grant we applied for through Chase bank. It's a nuisance, I know, but if you've voted already, maybe you could tell a friend, hmmm?
All we want to do is make the store better, which includes adding a real stage, building the shelves up towards the ceiling, making our storage more functional, and hire a few more employees to accommodate all the changes, yay. Not much to ask, right?
