TheHardWay: One Week to Go…

We’ve taken possession of 43 Hellems and started cleaning it up in anticipation of our grand opening at 8:00pm Friday 18 July. The countdown is on. Already, some curious onlookers have stopped by to say hello. There seems to be some real interest and excitement in this place. Last week’s blog post, Introducing TheHardWay, was viewed over 4,000 times by more than 3,000 unique visitors to the site. My average blog posts get between 100-150 unique viewers, so the reaction to TheHardWay is both encouraging and overwhelming!

Schedules of events and workshops have been written, revised, scrapped, and re-written. There are a lot of really good people with some really good ideas for this place. So far, this is what is in store… and there are additional events still in the works!
