For Today

Best of Enemies Opening Night

At first glance, the premise of Best of Enemies seems like cartoonish fiction intent on making a broad moral point: A Ku Klux Klan leader and a strong black woman becoming friends while on a community committee about desegregating schools in the 1970s? Please. 

But the story of C. P. Ellis and Ann Atwater’s bonding is true and speaks to the power of opening minds. Check out this special screening of a true story that shines a spotlight on recognizing the humanity of one another to work together to change the future.

Best of Enemies, Wed, Mar 25, 7:30pm, Taproot Theatre, 204 N 85th St, $20–$40

Advance Notice for March 30

Parklet and Streatery Application Deadline

Live or own a business in a dense neighborhood? Looking to open up a little space? Try applying for a parklet or a streatery.

A parklet takes a few on-street parking spots and opens them to the public in potentially fun and functional ways. Think a few tables, a little greenery, a pool table. Why not?
And the city's parklet program has been expanded to include street eateries, giving restaurants the opportunity  have outdoor table service in the place of parked cars. 

The deadline to fill out a parklet/streatery application has been extended to Monday, March 30.
