Tommy’s Downtown Tavern is the toehold Pigtown needs

Tommy’s Downtown Tavern is the toehold Pigtown needs

A while ago I had heard through the grapevine (probably via @casey18cc and @carolott, who live within eyeshot) that Tommy’s Downtown Tavern (839 W Cross St, Pigtown) was for sale and was reminded again by reading it over on southbmore.com that Tom Fox is trying to sell the property to the “right person,” someone who would foster the relationships he’s built with his surrounding community over the past three years and continue to nurture them … Read entire article »

Help fund the running of the pigs, get cool stuff

Help fund the running of the pigs, get cool stuff

The annual Pigtown Festival is upon us on October 19th and what would the Pigtown Festival be without the iconic Running of the Pigs (aka “The Squeekness”)? Adorable little sue-WEEthearts trotting along a makeshift racecourse covered in hay, delighting and DAZZLING children of all ages. Or something like that. At any rate with 12 days left Pigtown Mainstreet is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise the $2000 needed to cover the cost of the race … Read entire article »

Longing for Leadership

Longing for Leadership

Hello CTB Family, It’s your friendly, neighborhood, self-appointed Bishop here.  Today I would like to speak with you about one of my passions. No, this is not going to be a rant about great coffee, or why I hate cats, or my latest book.  I want to talk with you about leadership. You may not know this about your CTB Bishop (that’s me), but I am a leadership junkie.  I read every leadership book I can get my … Read entire article »
