Earth Day Toodle 2012


Native Foods Staff Member at Work

If you ever get a hankering to learn to improve your climbing skills, ride in and around the southeast areas in Wisconsin. That will make a vast improvement in your cardiovascular and muscular efficiency in no time flat. Just remember to give your butt a day or two to recover before trying it again.

We rode today despite my butt soreness and that turned out to be a good thing. It was windy but the sun was out and everyone seemed happy to be celebrating the Earth Day activities that were going on all around the city and suburbs.

I brought in prints from last week’s cooking demonstration and gave them to the staff that had been told they were coming. And then I proceeded to continue documenting the friendly wait staff in the cafe as they went cheerfully about their duties.

When we left we took Wolcott south just to see what differences lay between it and Wood Street. There is a surprising difference in neighborhoods as you travel one block or two east or west of a given street heading north or south. That is why I love riding in the city. You can never run out of things to photograph or people to meet.

Wicker Park itself is a beehive of Bohemian activity and you can see every fashion trend to mankind pass by as you sit outdoors and dine. I just love it! And while the denizens are sometimes shaggy they all seem to love their dogs and cats. And that simply cannot be bad. Besides if you love tiny records, and vintage bicycles you are sure to be delighted living or visiting this area. Come and enjoy the food at Native Foods Cafe.
