Want to host a Soup Night?

Soup Night is a social event held every other month in a neighborhood home. The host provides the site and agrees to cook one pot of soup. A co-host volunteers to bring a second pot of soup (one soup should be vegetarian). Guests bring salads, bread, dessert or other food and beverages. Soup Night is normally scheduled towards the end of the month, on a Sunday from 6 - 8 pm. However, this September ends on a Friday, so we could also schedule it for the first Sunday in October. The event is…See More

vandalized playground at Dover Beach park- Issue Link: http://bit.ly/qKVJMN

Posted on September 26, 2011 at 9:50am 2 Comments

Hi Folks,

Somebody has been vandalizing the new play area at Dover Beach park. Over the past 4 monts, they have knocked down 3 fence panels from around the play area. Each time I called the city, but all they did was haul away the panels, they never replaced them. The vandals also beat up the trash can and removed its wheels so it won't stand up anymore and trash goes everywhere; I called about this as well but to no avail.  I just posted a report to Seeclickfix about this problem.…

Support Grand Vin

Posted on May 18, 2011 at 10:28am 3 Comments

Hi everybody,

 

Many of you probably know Grand Vin, on the corner of Grand and Quinnipiac Avenues.  It's a gem of store, selling a variety of fine wines, beers and liquor, more like the Wine Thief downtown than the other liquor stores on Grand Ave.  Ben, the owner, is very knowlegable, and committed to the neighborhood.  He had a rough winter, however, due to all the snow wiping out parking, and now the road construction on Quinnipiac continuing the…
