Five Things to Know Today: Thursday, May 12
Essential daily information at a glance.
1. Not one, but two Whole Foods events today. A group of neighbors plans a visioning forum about other ways to use 415 Centre St., former home of the Hi-Lo, than the 20-year lease to Whole Foods Market that the property owner has signed. 7-9 pm at the Kennedy School. (Note: Organizers say they are not Whose Foods, the anti-gentrification group, but an ad-hoc group of JP neighbors.)
3. You might have seen the documentary Olmsted and America's Parks in rotation on PBS. Go a step further and see the documentary at the Arboretum, followed by a panel discussion with park advocates featured in the film. Also at 7 p.m. Choices, choices!
4. Meanwhile, what's billed as the oldest glee club in the South, from Georgia Tech, sings at St. John's tonight. When? 7 p.m., of course. It's a double-header of music at the church, as that will be followed by pianists James Hurley and Brian Friedland at 8:30 p.m.
