'Preciate the plug, Ben, but two much-more worthy events are being run by my gal, owner of the Road Less Traveled:

*Tomorrow, during first Saturday, her store, REI, and a lot of other great organizations will have an eco-friendly fashion show at the 2nd Street Promenade. Events all day, show starts at 7pm

*Sunday, The Road Less Traveled and Harvey's will hold Patchwork, an indie arts-and-crafts fair, at The Road Less Traveled (corner of Main and Buffalo) and the Harvey's headquarters (corner of Broadway and Buffalo).
