Crew crunches trailers at bottle exchange

HALIFAX — Demolition crews are tearing into the foam and metal skin of two truck trailers attached to the abandoned Dave’s Bottle Exchange warehouse. It looks like the crews, who started work Wednesday, are leaving the main building up for now.

Anyone know the reason for the work?

A development agreement for this spot was proposed two years ago. Is this the project that is going ahead?

A big birthday party on John Street

HALIFAX — Eight neighbours celebrated a birthday on or close to Saturday, so birthday cake was the natural thing to take over the John Street street party this weekend. Afternoon festivities — including street hockey, live music and zumba dancing — also got a boost from the unexpected drive-by appearance of about 100 naked bicycle riders. Yep, it’s true. How could we make something like that up?

John Street residents got up and danced the zumba at their street party Saturday.

Bubby Adams bought his home on John Street 40 years ago. He did a fine business at the morning yard sale.

Birthday cake and folk music took care of the early afternoon.

Who needs Joel Quenneville? There were plenty of coaches on hand to help aspiring hockey players.

John Street to celebrate ‘good city life’

HALIFAX — Residents on John Street are organizing a street party for Saturday, June 12, that, according to the invitation, will celebrate “the street and the good city life.”

North and Agricola sources confirm that at least two architects and one set of baby twins will be celebrating their birthday at the event, so be prepared to sing the Happy Birthday song again and again.

8-11:30 a.m. — Yard sale
Noon-1:15 p.m. — Potluck lunch and live music
1-3 p.m. — Street games like hockey, hopscotch, hula hooping and soccer
3-7 p.m. — Dance party including zumba

The weather forecast shows a big bright sun with a high of 21 C. But Environment Canada has been known to make mistakes: Rain date is June 19.
