Dream Green – Lollapalooza 2009

Surely the music is impressive, but another impressive factor I discovered is the concerted efforts by the producers of Lollapalooza to make the Festival as ecologically responsible as possible. All generators used throughout the park are run on a biodiesel mix, solar energy is used to power select site enhancements. High-efficiency lighting is used wheneverContinue reading “Dream Green – Lollapalooza 2009”

Flying The Friendly Skys

Lots of the same stores that we have in San Antonio, but bigger, like Borders,Barnes & Noble and the Target on Roosevelt is two stories…. HUGE. We bought a broom andContinue reading “My Kind Of Town”
