The local edition of Metromix provided a guided tour through a night in Fountain Square this week, and it hits some good spots that I highly recommend. However, please don’t forget that Arthur’s Music and the comic book store aren’t open at night, so you might want to drop by a little earlier to drop the little ones off for some music lessons and pick up some prime reading material. Or get some lunch, too. Really, it’s not that I don’t want Fountain Square to blossom as a late-night destination of choice – when you sport Peppy’s Grill, it’s your destiny to host those who do, indeed, go on and on ’til the break of dawn. And I love love LOVE being able to walk to music gigs down here. It’s just okay if we see you in the morning, too.
And speaking of that, a lovely neighbor of mine pointed me towards these artist’s renderings of what’s on tap for the Fountain Square area itself – gawd, that’s gorgeous. I can see this becoming a destination for adventurous buskers, and good for them. The only representation so far has been the saxophonist moonlighting as a human sign for the tax place down the road. He sounded good, but the Lady Liberty costume kept getting in the way. Come on back and play for real, sir.
