Signs of Spring!

Spring is here! (Okay, kind of.) People are wearing less! (Or at the very least, leaving the black, knee-length, puffy parka at home.) This makes me hopeful, kind of like the season. Out and about on Saturday night, I ran into the ultra-cool Bob and Emily in the Market who were as lovely to talk to as they looked.  A little later in the evening, Michael pranced into the Mercury Lounge in an eye-catching orange plaid cape. He had lots of interesting things to share and well, who doesn’t want to talk to a guy in cape?
