Ode to Springfield and cool people

Alright friends, its time to name-names and get to know each other. Last night I went to 1984, a cool downtown arcade where you can play amazing 80's video games. (I would highly suggest making your way down there if you haven't). The reason I was at 1984 on a Tuesday night was b/c a very cool Ozarkian Darren King was in town and decided to get all his friends together. Darren is the drummer for the band Mute Math (good music peeps) and is in the middle of some heavy blowin' up the indie/cool kid music scene. Recently MM has been on David Letterman, TRL, and has been at some pretty amazing music festivals such as Bonnarroo and Virgin.

Anyway, so I went downtown to say hi to my hubby and I's friend Darren and started realizing something as the night progressed: We have some pretty freakin' cool people living in Springfield. Not to name names (but to name names--ha!) I got to talking to Jaime Layne from the recently broken up band The Social, Jeff Smith who has a kick-a recording studio, Some guy named Roger who works for NPR in St Louis, Darren's amazing mom (she does intercessory prayer just like Winnie), Nate (the NEW host of the SKinny Improv--clap clap), Jeremy Larson, and several other fun peeps I am starting to get to know.

All of this rambling is to say that there were probably 40 other people in and out who do great things for Springfield and it made me proud to be from here. With all the talk of friends moving it makes you wonder if you want to stick around the place you grew up---but there is a lot going on in Springfield, a lot to be happy about. Culture is finally starting to thrive here, and I feel lucky to know and continue to meet many of the people who make that happen.

Shout outs to other Ozarkians I know well who make this such a great place to be: Jeff J., the Swinks, the Dockerys, Kesha and Charlie, Mary Helen and Dave, the Infamous Todd Williams, Nora Cox, the Todds, The Kitchens, Skinny Improv awesome people, Leah Hamilton, and all the many students I know through KLASS.

Favorite Springfield places (I'll throw this in b/c its on the topic): Greenways trails, Mudhouse and Mudlounge, Electric Newsstand, Marshalls, Target, Discovery Center, Galloway Station, the Nature Center, Phelps Grove Park, Imos pizza, Tea Bar and bites, MSU, Drury, Evangel, the Moxie, South Ave. Pizza, and Andys.
