I know there are five days remaining in April, but May has five events I'm looking forward to:
Sunday, May 4
Main Street Mile (8:30a). I just signed up, so if you see me doing wind sprints under the cover of darkness from Stockhouse to Profenno's, don't mistake it for another Neal Dow Pub Crawl. It's too warm for one of those.
Tuesday, May 6
500 Westbrook LLC will present its proposed Stroudwater Place to the Westbrook Planning Board. The meeting is at 7p and--like most happening events in Westbrook--will occur in Room 114 at the Westbrook High School.
Thurday, May 8
To most people, this Thursday will be just another day before Friday. But for those in the know, May 8 marks the release of the first webisode of PROJECT: AYNA-V, only the most exciting thing to happen to Westbrook since the mill stopped stinking. Put simply, Ahura Zakhuur Diliiza (a Don's Lunch 'Big One' to the person who can pronounce what I just typed) is the most important creative, er, economist in Westbrook. Take that, Caren-Marie Michel!
Saturday, May 10
Annual cleanup of Riverbank Park, 8:45a. Be there, so those who litter don't have to be. Seriously, do show up.
Friday, May 23
Fourth Friday Art Walk (5-8p). Good art, good food, and good music. Definitely the most exciting thing that'll happen to Westbrook since PROJECT: AYNA-V's release on the Internets.
