It's a slow moving September, which is a good thing
I hear that Snow Days is no more and that is a shame since that was one thing that set us apart from other areas. That was always fun. Grovetoberfest and the Pumpkin Patch are coming up this month and next month, but it almost looks as if the Grove has sworn off events, but not really because the last big even was the Great Grove Bed Race which was earlier this month.
Usually September flies by, but for some reason, this month has stalled, which, I think is a good thing, because who wants their life to fly by? It's hard to believe that the Bed Race was this month, it feels like it was so long ago and we still have a week to go in this month! Love it. Slow September.
I'm off to the gym and then to Buena Vista Deli in Midtown, to meet some friends for breakfast. I've been branching out of the Grove a lot lately, to enjoy other things. I was at Roaster n' Toasters, across from Dadeland, yesterday, which is next to the old Borders Books, which will become Trader Joe's soon.
When I brought up Trader Joe's the other day, I wasn't trying to put down the Pinecrest location meaning that the Grove was better. I just know that for years, there were serious talks with Traders Joe's about coming to the Grove. I was asked to not say anything by those involved in the talks and I just don't understand how that ball was dropped on that. That's all. We never seem to close the deal around here when it comes to things like that, but the good news is that once the door is open in the county, who knows where Trader Joe's could end up next. Oh, and the Grove location was possibly part of the big project in Village West where the Publix may or may not go, so either way, there was no way Joe's was going to end up there anytime soon since the ground has not even been broken yet in that area.
