Walkabout Wednesday…with a challenge!
I am fortunate to live in a neighborhood that has been allowed to keep it’s mixed-use zoning. (Where the rest of the city, with a few exceptions, isn’t “walkable” as far as being able to walk to schools, restaurants, etc.)
So nearly every Tuesday, DL and I walk down to Diamondback Grill—about 2 blocks. Tuesday is trivia night, and I pretty much always win, which gets us a $10 coupon to use toward a future visit.
Along the way, we pass the two condos we rent to college students, as well as other condos that I love.
This little cutie with the seafoam green door is one of my favorites. It’s owned by an older lady who has been able to keep her beautiful garden, despite the fact that the neighborhood association doesn’t want anyone to maintain a garden.
(If you could see her gorgeous gardens in person, you could see why this directive is total bull$hit.)
We also pass my gym, but I try not to go in.
Yesterday when we went to Diamondback, the guy in charge of trivia, John, was on vacation. So the manager asked me if I would like to provide trivia on the nights when John isn’t there! He gave us a coupon anyway, because he knows I usually win, so it’s a safe bet that I would have won yesterday,too.
Is your neighborhood walkable?
