I'm about a week behind in posting, but here are some highly useful tips:
1) Final reminder: Fraoch Heather Ale maker Bruce Williams (whose brewery also produces some terrific session ales) will be at Max's Taphouse tonight.
2) A building on South Broadway at Eastern Boulevard has collapsed, according to some news reports. This is thoroughly screwing up traffic on Eastern Avenue and South Broadway. If you are coming down for Bruce tonight, seek alternate routes. (I often head east on Pratt and turn south on one-way-southbound Wolfe.)
UPDATE: Emergency demolition underway, the former auto supply building at the southwest corner of Broadway and Eastern.
