In Topic: 2018 Forum Meetings - Last Friday of Month at 11:45 AM

Yesterday, 06:47 PM

I couldn't organize a photography tour on a weekend, so the next Forum Meeting will be this Friday at lunch at Benito's.  If you are new, please hang around and ask.  If you are one of the regulars, please let Arturo, or someone at Benito's know the Fort Worth Forum is meeting.  I will try to call him ahead of time to make sure he gets the strangers seated with us.

In Topic: Main Street Arts Festival

I believe the Main Street Arts Festival website posts the times the artist's booths are open and I believe the site said they would be shutting them down at 6:00 PM, while the festival continues on for another couple of hours.  I do realize that this was posted before the event and did not take into consideration the storm delay on Saturday.

On Thursday and Friday, I worked late, and on Saturday, I actually felt a little cheated by the weather.  I went during a break in the rain in the afternoon, and I found out shortly after I arrived that severe weather was moving in.  So, I finished walking the other direction on the street and then I hightailed it for home.  I had let the dogs out because they had been in all morning due to the rain, so they were both neurotic in anticipation of the storm when I got home.  I was gone less than 1.5 hours total.  This is including driving both directions, parking, and walking to Main Street.  I did not return on Sunday.

Austin and I have talked with the architect.  From what I understand the lighting will only be across the top of the building.  The building is still wired for edge lighting around all of the cantilevers as shown in the early renderings.  Everything but the top was not installed to save some money.

I had thought about going down at dusk to take some photos with just the logo illuminated, but since that is not the final lighting scheme, I have decided to wait until all of the lights are turned on.  That is supposed to happen on the grand opening night.
