Sunday summary

A new feature on Sunday is a review of the previous week, in case you missed anything. Don't worry, though, if anything super-cool happens on Sunday I'll include it too. This Sunday I'm getting ready for the start of a new semester tomorrow, so it's been a day of mostly work.

Sunday, Jan. 3

Detail of visitor statistics chart

Notes projected on screen

Glass on bar at Velvet Tango Room

An interesting Friday night: Gamelan Galak Tika concert followed by a visit to the pricey, classy Velvet Tango Room. The concert was a bit disappointing, but the VTR lived up to its reputation for great cocktails. More...

Edgewater Hill Blue Bird on building
