Two Big Events in Brookside This Week

Two big events happening this week in Brookside…

reptileFirst, Reading Reptile is closing it’s doors. This unique, treasured children’s bookstore has been a landmark shop on 63rd St for years.  Even if you didn’t have kids…you just have to walk in that colorful, art filled store after the welcoming storefront window display caught your eye.  Owners Pete Cowdin and Deb Pettid are focusing their time and talents on their newest project, The Rabbit Hole (hard to describe this venture–just click on the link!).  All books in the store are now half off, and they are taking bids on fixtures, furniture, art and everything else until 5pm on Friday March 11, 2016.  You are welcome to come by Saturday March 12 for the closing party from 10am-3pm.  We will all miss Reading Reptile–it was truly a one of a kind, charming and inviting Brookside shop.

Also Saturday–the 36th Annual Brookside St Patrick’s Day Warm Up Parade!  Street traffic will be rerouted from the parade route most of the afternoon:  Wornall from 65th to 63rd; Meyer and 63rd from Wornall to Main; and Brookside Road from Gregory to Meyer.  The parade begins at 2pm and runs for approximately 90 minutes.  I’ll be there…walking with my fellow real estate agents with the Better Homes and Gardens float!  Please be extra cautious driving around Brookside Saturday afternoon–watch for  kids, bikes, foot traffic and avoid the parade area.
