Random Shots: Sunflowers in the city


This sunflower is enjoying the good life. It’s growing across the street from the site of phase 2 of the Park Place development in the city center. Come this Sunday (July 15th), it will be hanging out inside someone’s home. That’s when Jones Valley Urban Farm is hosting its First Annual Sunflower Harvest Block Party at the Gardens of Park Place. Click here to view JVUF’s homepage to see additional information about the park and the event.

In case you can’t wait until Sunday to enjoy yourselves, we’ll start listing some events going on throughout the week. Apparently Steak Verhoeven are presenting a 1970s American Film Retrospective at Rojo beginning tonight at 7 p.m. and admission is FREE. Check out some of your favorite films from the 70s (or at least those that you enjoy that you know were made in the 70s). Click here to view a PDF providing some background as to why they’re doing it. In case you don’t want to read all that, here’s the list of movies (and thanks to Arik Sokol for the heads up:
