Take your bike to Parade the Circle this Saturday,

and save time, money, and the polar ice shelves by avoiding the crazy
car-parking nightmare:

The Ohio City Bicycle Co-op is presenting free, secure, bicycle
parking from 10 AM to 7 PM in front of the Cleveland Institute of Art
(at the intersection of East Blvd. and Wade Oval), right on the parade

We offer riding information, free mechanical safety checks, recycled
bike art and a shady place to congregate, as well.

Co-op members (current OR prospective!) are urged to reply to this
email if you would like to receive shop credit for volunteering to
assist with the parking duties: no experience necessary, we'll train
you on the spot -- just let us know in your reply what two-hour period
you would like to help out for, and show up (on your bike, we hope!)!

Those wishing to join a group ride to Parade from the co-op will want
to join the social ride, leaving PROMPTLY at 10:30. More on that at:

Happy cycling!

I'm pleased to invite you to another in our series of open houses at The Inner Circle. This Friday, June 22, we will open the restaurant with an expanded food service, being planned by Hot Sauce Williams' Greg Williams and The Inner Circle's Edwin James - I'll post details shortly. But the big news we'll be discussing at The Inner Circle this Friday is literally the "news", as we are about to launch a print newspaper for East Cleveland - 4-color, 24 page - 20,000 free copies (advertiser supported) to be distributed door-to-door and made available all over East Cleveland, University Circle and in the area, and of course on-line. You are invited to help write and produce it!

Sometimes a sliver of an image, a hint of fragrance, a word or a small gesture has the power to transcend time and space where intimate collections of buried imagination are stored.

Such is the work in Storage Space (Jun 22-Aug 3, 2007), the artists invest the art with pathways to real or imagined histories.

Yes, we will have a happy hour at the Inner Circle today, starting around 4 until 7 or so - with Edwin mixing in some tropical tunes to cool the day. Please stop by if you have time and learn the latest developments with Star Neighborhood Development, the Inner Circle, and in the neighborhood... we may have our WiFi hot sopt up by then, if I can figure everything out.. Hopefully, we'll have closed on our house by then, too, and we may welcome you to come by and check it out and offer renovation advice... we'll have an open-house whether we close or not - if you are thinking of moving any time soon you should check this out.

My wife and I are big fans of NEO artist Gina DeSantis - I started buying her functional ceramic pieces when she first showed at Buzz (we love her rice bowls designed with chopsticks in mind). When Buzz closed, we hunted Gina down to continue buying her work. So, when she announced Level Three Gallery it was such good news... be sure to check Level Three Gallery and Gina's work (above) out at their upcoming show, described below...

I received this today from the Ohio City Bicycle Co-op:

I'm doing an unprecedented thing for me, and sending this to everyone I
email (Sorry if you consider this "spam") because I think it's
important that folks get together on this -- especially after reading Al
Gore's Op-Ed in the New York Times:

Some of you are not in Cleveland, but look at this invitation anyway,
please, and if you're not, I think you can find an event near you by
clicking on the "find an event" at the top, by "event central"...
I feel strongly that we can all learn something from this kind of
event, so here's the boilerplate from Live Earth, and if I don't see you
(with your bicycle, I hope !) at Great Lakes Brewery on Saturday, I hope
you will attend an event near you if you can:

You've been invited to attend Audubon Party for the Planet. Go to to RSVP.

I hope you'll do something fun and meaningful for the planet this
Saturday -- if not by attending a Live Earth party, then by riding your bike
