Keyport International Food and Music Festival Day 1

June 28, 2008

My plan was to go to Espresso Joe’s in Keyport for lunch today.  I got in the car and headed over to Keyport.  When I turned onto Front Street, I saw that it was blocked off and, much to my pleasure, a street fair was going on.  I love street fairs!  So I found a parking spot on a side street, and walked up Main Street.

Lining both sides of the streets, vendors of all kinds were selling their wares… clothes, jewelry, accessories, candles, specialty items, and more.  Then I saw signs that said 1st Annual Keyport International Food and Music Festival.  Wow! I had NO idea this was taking place, yet something was drawing me to Keyport today.  I love happy surprises! Read the rest of this entry ?

Introducing Bayshore Friends!

February 22, 2008

I swear I’m always coming up with some “pet project”. Usually it’s out of boredom and aimlessness. But this time – with Bayshore Friends – I have truly do have a purpose: to connect people in the Bayshore area. Locals meeting locals to socialize and, hopefully, make new friends. Sound groovy, huh?

I started working on a website for this. But then I thought to myself — why not just use a social networking site? I thought about creating a MySpace profile (which I may still do anyway), but it doesn’t have all the functionality and interactivity I’d like. Then I thought about Meetup.com. But they charge you $75 every 6 months JUST for the privilege. Screw that.

So I did some searching and I think I found something that’ll work – at least for now: http://bayshorefriends.ning.com/

While this does not have the “meetup” function I want, it does offer some interactivity. I figure “converge” online first, then do meetups in the future – depending on the interest. Meetups may include: restaurants, coffee shops, book stores, cocktails, house parties, game nights, outdoor activities, or whatever else people want to do.

So, what are you waiting for, become a BF today! :)
