Updated! Urban News and Linkage – Tropical Depression Edition

Update: one DJ drops out. Rescheduling the Patio Party for next week!

Tomorrow Night at Max’s! Special guest DJ with Biggy and I. There will be (as the flyer says) funk, soul and hip hop on the sidewalk. As always there will be $1 PBR, $2 Drafts and $3 Jagers. You probably missed last week’s guest appearance. You don’t want to miss this week’s guest.

This is a pretty hilarious look at tomorrow’s DJ explosion at Marx’s via The Urban Core.

There will be an art show this Saturday at Three Layers in Springfield. It will feature more fabulous work from SK (show above). There’s supposed to be one or two more artists and free wine and beer. 6pm-9pm. You should go, here’s a map. There’s also word that Three Layers will begin serving lunch soon.

SPAR says, M M’s at 4th and Market is also growing in popularity. I also have a first-hand recommendation from T A to try the breakfast-in-a-cup.

Main Street Construction is on Schedule from SPAR

It is a pleasure to see the progress on Main Street. They are on schedule, and we hope the weather and all other things are on our side for a quick completion. The inconvenience the project is causing business owners is something that we cannot control. As the old, worn out infrastructure is replaced, the top area must be dug up.

This is not long term, but it does cause a temporary inconvenience. SPAR would like to remind everyone to be sure and support our local businesses during this difficult time. Restaurants include A to Z Restaurant at 4th and Main, Chan’s at 5th and Main, Carl’s at 8th and Main, Jerome Brown’s Barbeque and 9th and Main Restaurant at 9th and Main, and Cotton’s at 11th and Main.

In a strange turn of events old media embraces new media in the name of good content. Jacksonville.com is running a series of posts from Metro Jacksonville called 30 Days of Plight.

Have you jumped on the bus lately? Stephen Dare, co-editor of MetroJacksonville.com, made the Jacksonville Transportation Authority his only method of transportation for 30 days.
