Do good, get a tan, and score free donuts ... ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

It is sorta late notice for this, but if you are looking for something to do tomorrow, consider coming out to Waterloo Road from 12-4 PM to do a little art and yard work. The first installation in the is taking place, on the exterior of Shoparooni, and they need some helping hands for the painting. If you don't dig that idea, you can a plant some flowers generously donated by the Holden Arboretum, fill empty storefront windows with funky decals, or just wrap otherwise unappealing shit in brightly colored saran wrap. Seriously. Plus, you can score some allegedly awesomely delicious donuts gratis at Music Saves.

All you cool folks out there interested in helping out should check in at either Shoparooni or Arts Collinwood to get pointed in the direction where you can help out.

And if you are interested, below is the mock-up of the first mural. To help put it in context, the wall it will be painted upon is located mere feet from where infamous Cleveland gangster Danny Greene was almost assassinated by a car bomb.

You should check out the Case Western Reserve University Used Book Sale this weekend too. It's awesome! It's being held from Saturday, May 21, through Tuesday, May 24, in Case’s Adelbert Gym, 2128 Adelbert Road. The book sale is free and open to the public, except for a pre-sale between 10 a.m. and noon on opening day where admission is $20. I never miss it and then treat myself to lunch at Little Italy.
