The Morning Metropolitan

Merriment Clown by M.V. Jantzen.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • In case you missed it, Pope is out at Hardy, Nerenberg will take over both Hyde-Addison and Hardy next year. More on this later.
  • Merriment in Georgetown was a huge success. It was cold but not frigid and the crowds were much bigger this year. While there are still a few kinks, it appears that this tradition will take hold.
  • Georgetown’s getting a Target! Kinda.

  1. It was great to meet you yesterday, finally! Here’s my take on things:

  2. This event is showing real promise. It definitely managed to bring out the crowds. Here are my recommendations:

    Don’t use squad cars to close off the streets – especially not with their lights flashing and engines running. Why not just have bales of hay?

    Don’t hide the performers in a tent. An overhead tarp would be better. Do give them lights.

    Don’t let lines queue perpendicular to the street, blocking the flow.

    The roaming characters (toy soldiers, Rudolph, Frosty) were great.

    The carriage rides were awesome.

    Santa deserves a better throne!

    Paolo’s was the only building lit up; and that’s how they’re lit year-round. Make sure those blocks of Wisconsin have more lights!

    I would separate the Wisconsin event from the Harbour event; they’re simply too far apart. Put them on the same weekend, but different days.

  3. Michael you got some great fotos yesterday! Santa definitely deserves a better throne.
