Hard Times: An Artistic Expression of…


If anyone actually went to this and could reassure me that this was not a bunch of upper class professors, with middle to upper class attendees (I can assume this because those in poverty probably do not attend art shows at the Pablo-which itself replaced a homeless hangout near the river-that parody their situation), being 'moved' by the plight of the lower classes, and then going home feeling good that they do not count themselves among the unfortunate. I hope the performers and organizers did not kid themselves this is in any way creating awareness or compassion - only alienating and insulting a very large segment of EC's population. Sorry, poverty is not an art form.

Eau Claire Voters Would Decide If Possible…

oh honeeeeeey, do not fret about the details - everyone knows we cant have anything nice in this town due to drunks and vandalism! This is no doubt why Menard's Tennis center is a square featureless warehouse box - GOOD PLANNING! The miles long parking lots are about all this town can handle. Glass=breakage, trees= to be snapped. Better to just not spend the $ the first time around.
also, finding it hard not to comment on the barely visible computer generated, half-assed foliage instantly jumping out as pubic hair to you...has your therapist ever held one of those little card with inkblots on them in front of your face during a session? (Dont actually answer)

Viva Bon Mexico


Can't really say this is proof he 'sold out' since he was from the beginning. I'm sure this news still broke a few naive hipster hearts.

Is Eau Claire the “best small town” in…


Omg so according to this we're cool because Chance the Rapper may have barely come within city limits at some time in the past for one show? Could we not come up with something else?

Gregg Sale: no place should be compared to Peoria, or pretty much anywhere else in IL, thanks.

Teeber: "if" there's a drug problem? Like Chance the Rapper, you probably dont live here either then. Oh, but if you do, you might wanna lock your doors, as JoeT is right. Or dont, i really dont care.

JoeT: you are right.

Eau Claire's Creative Example


I like Placemaking Chicago's description:"Placemaking is a people-centered approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Put simply, it involves looking at, listening to, and asking questions of the people who live, work and play in a particular space, to discover needs and aspirations. This information is then used to create a common vision for that place. The vision can evolve quickly into an implementation strategy, beginning with small-scale, do-able improvements that can immediately bring benefits to public spaces and the people who use them." Note the emphasis on the needs of the people who use the space already. In other words, lets ensure our "placemaking" is not gentrification under a cuter name.

Stacked Animals: Plushie Totem Pole…

well the totem isn't sticking onto any private property and presumably wont require messy removal + if it is dedicated by the Chippewa State trail he must've gotten permission. So, not really a apt comparison to graffiti bandit.

Menard’s Gift Will Build New Tennis…


replied to: Wow. Are those plans finalized? I'm no…

yeaahhhh, looks like they're going for that creepy warehouse vibe. Next to natural woodsiness of Carson. Artistic juxtaposition?


Reviewed: Green Mill Restaurant & Bar

The food itself tasted decent - the large veggie pizza was quite good. However, 2 out of the 3 dining experiences were overall poor, due to our orders being FORGOTTEN by the server! Both times my small group sat for an hour + before having any food placed before us, and then just got a free dessert offered as consolation. Once might happen, but twice - especially when the restaurant itself was not busy - is too much.
