During the informational meeting yesterday, Councilor Brown bragged that the (reissue) of First Fridays at the Pavilion was wildly successful, and over 700 people showed up.

Ah, well, Duh.

Anytime you open a entertainment and arts facility during a time when working families can attend it, it’s gonna be successful. What I cannot figure out is why it took so long to figure this out. Just think of the amount of money we have lost and missed revenue opportunities. Talk about ‘leaking money’. When the city requested a review of the Pavilion about 5 years ago, one of the main recommendations was to open the facility at night. So what do they do, wait 5 years.

I’m glad they are ‘finally’ doing it. But what took so damn long?! Geez!

    It’s almost as if it’s in somebody’s best interest for the pavillion to be a money pit…

  2. One wonders?

    Since it was so successful, you wonder if they will get rid of it . . . again.

  3. The arts are for the upper class. I wish you little people would stay out of our way.

  4. When you mean ‘Upper Class’ are you talking about our governor?

  5. I didn’t say “white-trash”

  6. I like to call it ‘Pierre Trash’

    Smells like stale, cheap beer, old man cologne, and manure.
