A Sunflower at Emerson and Bloor

The community garden next to the Emerson exit of Lansdowne station is all but dead now. For a while it had some very pretty sun flowers brightening the area.

More faces from last Friday's night out

There were two Jennifers at last Friday's night out. Jennifer and Vic (see below) have come out for DIG IN events in the past. Vic, who has his own website, was one of the cyclists who rode around promoting Bloor NIGHTLIGHT last September. You can see some of Vic's Bloor NIGHTLIGHT pictures here. Vic also took pictures of last year's July 5 Bloor Splash Party.

DIG IN night out on Bloor

Jennifer and Doug

Last Friday a small group from DIG IN met at the recently-opened Kung Po Chicken at 1196 Bloor St. W (on the north side of Bloor between Brock and Pauline) for a meal and some friendly conversation. Afterwards we went over to Stella's at St. Clarens and Bloor for drinks and more talk. Jennifer and Doug, who are in the picture, were two of the people who joined us.

There are some problems on Bloor between and Lansdowne and Dufferin. DIG IN believes one way to address those problems is to encourage positive activities on the strip. Some of those activities are big events like the Splash Party and Bloor NIGHTLIGHT as well as this year's BIG on Bloor festival. (Mark your calendars for June 21). Other activities are simple things like supporting local businesses by using their services. Last year, some DIG IN members started going as a group to the various restaurants on the street. We are doing the same this year. Anyone is welcome to join us.

Over the next few days we will be posting more pictures from Friday's event.
