This sunflower is enjoying the good life. It’s growing across the street from the site of phase 2 of the Park Place development in the city center. Come this Sunday (July 15th), it will be hanging out inside someone’s home. That’s when Jones Valley Urban Farm is hosting its First Annual Sunflower Harvest Block Party at the Gardens of Park Place.

In case you can’t wait until Sunday to enjoy yourselves, we’ll start listing some events going on throughout the week. Apparently Steak Verhoeven are presenting a 1970s American Film Retrospective at Rojo beginning tonight at 7 p.m. and admission is FREE.
