Celebrating Independent Gainesville

This, that, and the Other: We’re Back Edition

We were unexpectedly out for the past week and a half…but happily, as of today, we’re happily back!

(And yes, we really did miss you.)

Thanks to all the well-wishes from so many of you. What a feeling of community we had.

Things coming up this week:

  • Union Street Ca$hMob–“We each do a little, we all do a lot”.
    The slogan sums it up, but let’s back up. What’s a Cash Mob?
    Wikipedia writes that “[a] cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business and all buy items from that business. The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community. They may also serve a secondary purpose in providing social opportunities.”
    Check it out. Hopefully we’ll see you on Wednesday at the Cash Mob and further prove that indiegainesvillians LOVE local,  from soap to honey, from jewelry to dinner.
  • Following the Cash Mob, get your tickets for the Hippodrome’s take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. “Gone are sword-fighting men in tights, replaced by a cityscape of hipsters that could be straight out of the latest video. This fantastical, modern re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic work…”  sounds entertaining!
  • Growing up in indiegainesville, we took fencing, belly dancing, Italian, and flamenco lessons over the summer through Community Education offered through Santa Fe. (At least one of us can fence and flamenco dance with a flare of belly dancing all while asking in Italian whether the train is on time.) But seriously, Community Education offers a wide-range of courses–some for fun, some to help you further your career/polish your professional skills. We think it’s worth browsing through the catalog of courses.
    Unfortunately, while we were “under the weather”, we missed sharing this with you. Classes have started, but it may not be too late to sign up. So hurry, and check out this link. Become friends with Lifelong Learner and stay up to date with new offerings to grow.
  • No news is without biased. As much as everyone tries–well, we’re all human.
    Having said that, we are huge fans of The Fine Print, a free “publication that aims to preserve the art of story telling and community building for the future of journalism.” They need the indiegainesville community’s support to keep doing what they do best–excel in journalism.
    Check out their site and seriously consider offering whatever financial support you can muster for this fine publication that really supports independent, local  businesses. (They also do a darn good job covering local elections.)
  • And don’t forget: Palomino Pool Hall is showing The Big Lebowski in the Backyard tonight at 10 pm. $3 White Russians and Wii Bowling on the projector after the movie ends =  a great way to start  of the week, indiegainesville style.

We love you all!
