Yesterday was fun! Midtown was hopping with hundreds and hundreds of people strolling up and down Virginia Street from Junkee's to Polyester's Costume Boutique. Every business had a little party going, from the Met Life folks on the corner of Holcomb and Roberts to all the new businesses located in Bernie Carter's renovation project at 701 South Virginia Street. Some businesses had djs, some had live bands, my fave two were the Mighty Surf Lords playing at Met Life, and Mojo Green who played at Polyester's Costume Boutique before the fashion show.
