Downtown Rocks!

July 8th, 2006

At least Thursday night around 7pm it did.  I thought it might be fun to check something I could actually walk to so I went to see a highschool metal band at the downtown common.

I got there and as I walked by the entrance of the park one of these guys slurred asked me why I was wearing pajamas (I wasn’t, I swear!) and then 5 minutes later this guy stumbled up to me mumbling about something and then made a point to tell me “white women suck”.  Oh downtown!
There were tables set up to enter raffles and whatnot. Starbucks gave away free treats and I got a recycle sticker.  The band was ok, I’m not 18 and I don’t listen to metal, not that I was expecting Gordon Lightfoot but my ears could only handle so much and didn’t stay for the whole concert. 
These guys had a good time performing and it was such nice night out, I was happy for the band to be playing for people and for downtown to have something going on at the common.  I’ll try to go next week to see whoever is playing. ????? ???? ??????? ??? ????  
On the way home I saw a Friendly’s cup on the ground.  Friendly’s has been closed for 6 months! ??? ?????? ??????? 2023 ???? Where did this surface from? I guess it could have been thrown out of a car coming from Temple Street. black jack   Just a sad reminder of how Friendly’s has forsaken downtown : (


  1. It is sad that I live so close to downtown that I could walk down there, but in general, there is no reason for me to… no place to eat, no place to shop. Sometimes it is kind of scary to be walking by myself to get downtown.

  2. I know, I feel exactly the same way. I really wish I had a reason to go downtown more. I hope the improved Arcade building brings some stores/services I can use.
