    I feel like I have been remiss in my duties today because I didn't report on what was happening on the Square at lunch today. But actually, there was nothing happening...Donato's was handing out free pizza, but I missed that and if you were waiting for me to tell you about it so did you. I admit it, I bailed at lunch today and had my haircut at Salon Beck on 4th Street in the old PNC bank building at the corner of 5th and Vine. Great place for a haircut, color and you can get it done on your lunch hour. Prices are reasonable. Michelle cuts my hair and for the first time in a long time, I am happy with the way it looks. It's also the cleanest salon I have ever been in. But if you are looking for something to do this evening, starting at 7, it is World Wide Wednesday. Guest artists are Kinobe & Soul Beat Africa.
