Thumbs! (5/14/15)

I can see it in your eyes. You know you want my Thumbs!

Remember that these are our new improved color-coded Thumbs! Green and UP! is good. Red and DOWN! is bad. Big Boards are always good. Let’s get one out now…

  • Thumbs UP! to our congressman, Robert Hurt, for coming through Danville and touring small businesses out at the Dan River Business Development Center. What’s that you say? You didn’t know anything about that? That’s because Congressman Hurt and his crack staff are getting a Thumbs DOWN! for not helping out my small business on his small business tour. I had no idea he was making an appearance three miles from my house because his media advance team dropped the ball. That’s why you people didn’t get coverage of it.
  • Thumbs UP! to everybody involved in hosting last week’s Downtown Pub Crawl. Dell’anno’s Pizza Kitchen, Jake’s on Main and the Golden Leaf Bistro all had drink and appetizer specials on Thursday night. If you missed this one, there’s three more to go in the series. Downtown Danville is livening up, people.
  • Even though it’s cheesy to give a Thumb! to a calendar, Thumbs UP! to this coming weekend. If you say that there’s nothing to do in the Southside region this weekend, you’re an idiot. We’ve got Danville’s Festival in the Park (click here for the event schedule), the Danville Museum’s Sutherlin Art & Wine Show, and Round #3 of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship out at VIR (click here for a list of all of the off-track events).
  • Thumbs UP! to Angela Fowler. Holy crap, can she sing! She was the entertainment for Tuesday night’s Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards dinner and she was awesome. It was my first time hearing her sing and it won’t be the last. Of course, an obligatory Thumbs UP! to the chamber as well.

That’s some well-needed Thumbs! Sorry, Showtime Jones. Nothing for you today. Heh.

We’ve got more coming up on SouthsideCentral.

    Thumbs Down on today’s headline about adding one more stop light to the Danville mix. Someone should make a rule that they can’t add one more unless they take out two. There’s no place in the country with more stop lights per capita than Danville, probably. I bet new VDOT surveys would not justify half the stop lights in the city.
