3:04 guy is trolling. This is EXACTLY what the Grove needs. I live in the Grove, walk around the Grove, play with my kid in parks throughout the Grove, run and workout in the Grove, shop in the Grove, etc...I will definitely be out spending money on Friday listening to music and eating/drinking throughout the village.

No need to wake up troll, keep sleeping, the clubs aren't open yet.

That was a fun night. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and did anyone else notice that the crowds were out, but well-behaved, friendly, and spending money in every bar and restaurant in the grove.
