May 5, 2014 – Planning a Social South Bend Weekend

Hi South Bend!

Here is a run down of my favorite events this weekend! May 9th – 11th, 2014

60+ bands, 15 stages, the South By South Bend music festival (year 2) starts Thursday.  Visit and check out the bands, the scheduled performances, and enjoy four days of amazing music for $25 (includes t-shirt).  I’ll be at the Phineas Gauge show on Friday night at Suite 11 (inside the Emporium Restaurant building).

It’s a cocktail party, at the JACC / Club Naomi (8pm – ?) to raise money for Down Syndrome Research.  The facebook event is here: I’ll stop in for a while to visit with friends before heading to downtown for the rest of the evening.

There you have it.  I’m excited for South Bend and the urban renaissance we are helping to make.  Together we will make South Bend Great! [/alert]

I hope to see you out this weekend and if I do, please say Hello!
