Harpo goes Vegan (for a week)

February 21, 2011 § Leave a comment

Over at Get Natured, I learned that Oprah and the rest of the Harpo crew are challenging themselves to go Vegan for a week. There are some interesting and useful resources on the website:

It’s simple and straightforward, and of course addresses the myths of eating vegan. Plus, I always love getting new meal ideas, which is why I was checking out Get Natured in the first place. Can’t wait to try her recipe for Breakfast Cookies!

a whole new Wynwood

August 1, 2008 § Leave a comment

This image appeared in the Biscayne Times, in the Community News section, in reference to the plans for the future Wynwood Arts District. What is particularly shady about this project is that apparently the “community” didn’t know about it. When they asked gallery owners, such as Brooke Dorsch, they said they were unaware of the redevelopment plan. So, who did know about the Wynwood Arts District Proposal? And, what will it mean for the future of the area? One of the goals, according to Tony Goldman, a real estate developer is to keep the “artistic aspect” of the community. But, the only mention of how that will be maintained is through the opening of bars and clubs.

The Biscayne Times also featured this nifty map which shows what they consider to be the Wynwood Arts District. Dorsch’s gallery, by the way, isn’t even included in this zone.
