It is Friday, it is dreary, Midtown has experienced nearly all seasons in the past two weeks, and it is now on the verge of transforming into a 387-acre ice block (no, we will not be playing with conversions or math today). So, you probably have time to catch up on some things if you aren’t strolling the neighborhood embracing…
Featuring: inefficient flowcharts B is for beer, burgers, brunch and of course, bibles (we can’t forget Church Row). Midtown is coming along in terms of beverage-serving location options, and beer runs in plentiful streams.
One of the most surprising things to me in Midtown is how many people are active outside. Whether it’s jogging down an alley or biking up Robinson. But we’re not nearly close enough to where we should be as a district regarding fitness. At least I know I’m not…
That’s where Barre3 comes in offering a new way to stay fit.
Midtown is drawing in a lot of interesting characters and residents these days. Photographers. Stylists. Artists. Chefs. Self-made business folks. Humanitarians. Creatives of all varieties. And now, mayoral hopefuls.
City councilman Dr. Ed Shadid has made Midtown his new campaign headquarters home. He’s right in the middle of the flourishing H&8th stretch of our district, and he’s equipped with a ping pong table (seriously, he has some killer ping pong skills).

Amid the hum of blow dryers, clatter of hairstyling tools and faint cooing of Stephen Malkmus singing Pavement’s “Shady Lane”, Emily Frosaker walks with calm and collective authority through the sunlight-drenched shop situated at 1212 N. Walker, or suite 101 of the sleek “1212” building.
Dry/Shop is open, and Midtown just got a bit hipper.
On the corner of Park Place and Hudson Ave a new addition to Midtown is on the way. Its different than your typical development and is significant in a way you might not expect. Midtown Mutts is a dog park concept conceived by Midtown Renaissance. Pet owners in Midtown are clearly excited, but we’ll tell you why even non-pet owners…
Let me first begin by saying I grew up playing SimCity 2000.
I was able to achieve first hand experience as an urban planner of a city that was usually riddled with abandoned buildings,traffic problems, and the occasional tornado. Sound familiar?
But the thing I failed at most was public transportation and getting my Sims to actually use it.
Midtown residents will take to the streets this Saturday in a fight against trash. There is growing malcontent over litter in the neighborhood and tensions are rising. Careless litterers create the mess and the abandoned buildings of negligent property owners sustain it.
