Art Car 2019
Please note: this is a temporary page to update you about the Art Car parade. Don't use the contact me button unless you want to hire me to work on your research grants! I might not see those emails in time.
It looks like it will be wet on Saturday. To borrow a phrase from Cat Allen (a hiding-in-plain-sight Forrest Yoga expert in Houston) my rain philosophy is the same as her definition of compassion. That is, "accepting what is, within your zone of tolerance."
I'm not going to erect the tent while AlertHouston is telling me to shelter in place, but I will trek down to Allen Parkway in my rain boots and eat empañadas in a drizzle. That's my zone of tolerance. If yours is different - you do you! We hope to see you Saturday, but if you can't make it, we'll catch you next time.
Parking + Child transport
We will walk from our house on Columbus Street.
If you're driving in and have 2 adults, a reasonable plan might be for one adult to drop the kids and other adult north of Dallas around Stanford, park farther away and walk back.
If I was driving in as one adult, I would try for parking between Montrose and Taft, between W. Gray and Dallas. I would transport my assistants with a combination of stroller, wagon, and carrier.
Here's the route map.
If you'd like to tell your GPS something about where to go, put in 2500 Allen Parkway, 77019.
