west village urban lofts

c. called the west village guys a while back to find out if they were planning to expand and in fact, they are. they’re going to build some “urban lofts” near the existing warehouse condos at 500 N Duke St.

anyway, he got a mail from them today. they’re redesigning the lofts to make them cheaper, and the availability date has been pushed back to late 2004/early 2005. they’re putting together a focus group of potential customers.

i’m just glad to hear that with the economy in shambles, the plans haven’t been scrapped altogether. can’t wait to see the plans, too!

peace, green power & art

Peace meeting, Mon Feb 3, 6:30. i didn’t go, but felt the need to log that this happened.

however, here is something that i have no excuse but to attend. i mean, really. a week’s notice for something i should do anyway, plus a presentation on solar power:

OND potluck, Mon Feb 10, 6:30pm

turns out i had the date quite wrong on the ms. film fest. it’s next weekend. there are workshops early in the day, and then the films start at 8pm. i was set straight on all this by an announcement on xdu!

also, sort of via xdu:

“Blackstrap will be opening for Roxotica at Ringside on this Saturday, Feb.

8th.

This is also the after-party for the Ms. Film Fest. ??Maybe?? Still ain’t

“official” but, oh hell, what else is there to do in downtown Durham.
