1. Public hearing tonight on the proposed SMU parking district. Meeting kicks off at 5, at UP City Hall. For more information about the district, go here.
2. In other City Hall news, tonight the UP City Council will debate….well not much more actually. The only other item on the main agenda is a vote on proposed changes to the city’s ordinance on column and gate heights. I imagine this will elicit the same sort of fervor and debate as the Legacy Hillcrest project.
3. As I mentioned last week, there’s a blood drive coming up. Here are the details, from the omnipresent Steve Mace:
Highland Park Town Hall 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
University Park City Hall 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
University Park’s Peek Service Center (4420 Worcoloa St.) 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
University Park City Hall 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
4. News came late last week that mixologist/genius/mustachioed man Jason Kosmas is taking his talents to Highland Park Village, at the soon-to-be-completed Marquee Club. On the same night, I tried his New Fang (rye, bitters, equal amounts magic/sass/big ice cubes) at his old place, Neighborhood Services Tavern. In response, a letter:
If you need any help testing new drinks at the Marquee Club, let me know.
