PI Update

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in the low 80's today so what better place to spend some time than Pleasure Island. Crowds were pretty brisk in both directions as they wandered through looking for something to do.

What luck! I got to attend the 6:30pm edition of Celebrate Tonight. DJ Lon on the ground had a really difficult time getting participants to....participate. He kind of forced the girls (pictured above left) to do the Electric Slide. As the next song began and Lon looked away, they fled! A few volunteers did come forward (pictured above right) for a combo Cupid Shuffle/Twist song. A few people stood around to watch but for this show most people kept walking.

Over on the West Side the new Ridemakerz store opened last week. It's a place for mostly boys to admire real race cars and then make one of their own, customized to their liking. Girls have had Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique so now boys have something. The store is located in the lower level of what used to be the Virgin Megastore. The store is temporary although it could stay open indefinitely if business is good and no one else wants the space. Appears to be a winner!

The graphics on the side of DQ have been there for years. They re-painted it a year or two ago, so it's not as faded now.

Must have overlooked it for years! Thanx.
