2/22 • OMG, Oscar weekend is upon us, and Metro will be attending the Spokane AIDS Network Oscar gala at Northern Quest Casino AND raising a glass (or several) at Heather Hanley’s private Oscar bash at her so-swank pad above Concept :: Home. We’re also planning to drop in on the Earth & People Sustainability Forum at the Community Building, 35 W. Main, from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday. This brainstorming event brings together regional leaders, the heads of several prominent national organizations, and every-day so-and-sos like us to envision and articulate economic and cultural recovery projects that could benefit communities in our region and across the country. Help sketch out the potential for innovative programs worthy of government and private funding—infrastructure, education, energy, transportation, affordable housing, agriculture, health & food security, green jobs, vocational retraining and the arts, among others. Also, at some point this weekend we’re going to stop and smell the flowers at Manito Park’s Gaiser Conservatory, where city gardeners have been busy and are now featuring colorful and fragrant displays of spring plants, bulbs and flowers – just what we need to chase away the winter blues.
