Holy flora! It’s the moment we all live for… the months of anticipation… the detailed planning of each outdoor activity… the hand-sewn personalized towels we make for our friends, coworkers and baristas… (NOTE: I feel like Pawnee has Tevas and they never left) the finishing touches on the photo collage and novelization of last month’s summer highlights… it’s all finally led us here: the day we get our head start on next summer! But, before I go do that, there are a few announcements!
– Do NOT buy sushi from the Blanket Man in Circle Park. He does not have a permit. Tony’s Soosh Barrel is the ONLY permitted sushi vendor, and even with him, I’d – you know what, use your best judgment.
– We do NOT have a sinkhole problem in the Pawnee parks. The parks are totally and completely safe! It’s actually just some weirdo digging holes in the middle of the night and also at peak play times. We’re doing our best to find those responsible.
And that’s all! Now get outside and stay there! But no later than 5 p.m. if you are within the cross streets of Charles and Magnolia. But otherwise, let’s party!
Your Loyal Summer Servant,
Deputy Director, Parks and Recreation
PERMITS DESK ANNOUNCEMENT: MAY 6TH HOURS
by Donna Meagle
Hello. As some of you already know, Cinco de Mayo takes place on a Sunday this year. Meaning on Monday, May 6th, the permits desk will most likely be out of commission until at least noon or TBD when I feel like it. So, plan your permit needs accordingly. Also, of note, the Permits desk is taking a long weekend starting Thursday, June 6th, as the NBA Finals are scheduled to start then, and the Permits desk will be setting up shop in South Beach.
