More potpourri from the pol

So a few quick shots and a blurb.

First, did anyone look at the clouds above downtown this evening around 530? They were insane. Here is a really bad attempt to capture the beauty with my camera phone.




Second, tonight was the opening of Soccer Taco on the Square. (Can I get an AMEN?!) I didn't get to eat there yet. My wife had class and threatened me with bodily harm if I ate there before her, so I decided to wait patiently. Here is another bad camera phone photo to commemorate the moment, though.




And finally, tomorrow there is a showing of UT art students (I'm assuming new masters students) down at the 1010 Gallery on gay st. One of those artists is Amy Hand. She is a very talented artist who works in clay and makes some really great looking "interpretations" of our culture. I recommend checking it out. It's from 6-9 tomorrow. Tell her the pol sent you and she'll knock 5% off the sales price of any item.

I had Soccer Taco yesterday and was so thrilled to be there on opening day. I imagine they will be seeing a lot of me.

Hallelujah, Soccer Taco and Amen too.

i'll have to give soccer taco another chance, which i will. my experience today was not excellent. I could feel the tension coming out of the kitchen. the place was packed and i'm not sure they were ready for it. they'll get the hang of it soon, i'm sure.

actually- we had a little conversation in the carpool this morning to work about the clouds. there's something about the east tennessee sky when it thunderstorms. it's almost like the clouds are right on top of you. but yesterday's sky was a really cool texture that completely caught me off guard, too.
