The South Monroe Street entrance to downtown Tallahassee now includes murals that grace the supports of the railway bridge over the roadway. Local officials say it’s the start of a makeover for what has long been an unimpressive approach to the State Capitol.

The murals are part of the “Street Art Tallahassee” project hosted by COCA, the Council of Culture and the Arts headed by Audra Pittman.

One of the world’s most famous cats was in Havana, Florida this weekend. “Lil’ Bub”, owned by Mike Bridavsky of Bloomington, Indiana, was making a personal appearance to raise money for the Tallahassee chapter of It’s Meow or Never for Ferals.

So much is going on in Florida’s Capital City it’s hard to keep up. The Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce got an overview of some of the more significant happenings during Tuesday morning’s (5/10/16) breakfast meeting.

After more than 40 years of having just one store in Tallahassee, the New Leaf Market Co-op has added a second location in the rapidly growing Northeast suburbs.
