    If you have something important to tell a friend, take them to the listening shells and have an intimate long distance discussion via sculpture.

    Parking is always a bear. If you can parallel park, head directly north a couple of blocks...there is usually street parking just a short walk away.

    The Sunday Farmers' Market's great. Open until 4:00 p.m., but arriving earlier, say, at noon (not as hot outside!) is good to do.
