SPRINGHURST – Yesterday a spokesman for Norton Commons™ announced the urban village will join together in hopes of bringing beauty and restoration to the Tinseltown parking lot. The organizers hope to create a pop-up plaza, cornhole board art and Blue Moon™ beer garden. One of the event planners, Clarence White, says the 10,000 square foot parking lot can comfortably hold thousands of people from all over Louisville.
“We really hope people from all over Louisville can make it down to our community event,” said White. “We want everyone down here. People from St. Matthews, Lake Forest, some of Clifton area, people on the Gardiner lane side of Bardstown Rd., the NULU section of downtown, you know a place where most all are completely welcome.”
O’charley’s™ says they will be providing factory farm to table tasty finger foods, and Sonic™ will be serving a bacon tater tot milk shake with a shot of bourbon and fireball mixed inside (for those over 21 only). The evening is planned to kick off at the end of October but organizers say it could be mid November.
“We’re really hoping this event will show everyone that we’re not “weird as you know what”,” said White. “We’re just a bunch of normal people that like to have a good time and enjoy city life in the middle of farmland and shopping malls.
Another Norton Commons™ resident, Richard Peachskin, says all of the money raised at the event will go to help children in Louisville.
“We’re hoping to raise ten to twenty thousand dollars” said Peachskin. “We’re going to pledge some dough to the elementary school in Norton Commons™, and give a little green to the Cub Scouts of Norton Commons™, stuff like that. We’re also going to put some money into helping the homeless. We’re planning on paying real homeless people to walk around Norton Commons™ this Christmas with those little cute gloves on, you know the ones with the fingers half showing? My wife and I have these perfect outfits picked out for them that we bought from a really chic store last time we were in New York. Oh and, if the NC’s fire department allows it, we’re gonna try to put 3 or 4 homeless people standing around those little adorable burning barrels warming their hands. Anyways, I’m gettin’ off track here, its gonna be a great event.
Norton Commons™ Lawyers say they encourage people to spread the word, but they will not tolerate any forms of stickers made to advertise for the event.
