On this date 41 years ago, the Beatles scored their final No. 1 hit, “The Long and Winding Road.’’ Speaking of, Smyrna-Vinings Patch keeps chugging along and will publish article No. 1,000 sometime this week.
Some have generated lots of interest, like this one. And others, not so much, like this example. While certain content has merely just been a roundup of the day’s events, which is what this article consists of.
Tonight, the Smyrna Planning and Zoning Board meeting will take place at City Hall at 6 p.m. Of note is the fact that RaceTrac's rezoning petition for a new Spring Road store has been tabled until July 11.
Up for approval though will be a code amendment to the City’s Zoning Ordinance regarding the creation of a new zoning district that will allow for the redevelopment of existing apartment complexes. A full agenda can be found here.
Also on the government front is the Cobb County School District’s Facilities and Technology Committee is meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Office on Glover Street in Marietta. If the mere mention of SPLOST excites you, this is the meeting for you.
If you’re not so much interested in such governmental matter, then maybe plan a visit to the Vinings Library for “Pint-Size Polka’’ from 6 - 6:45 p.m. Young children of all ages and their parents are invited to join in an original, entertaining and educational musical experience as “Uncle Mike” rolls out the fun with snappy polka tunes that sneakily teach children about the alphabet, occupations, and even a smidgen of other languages.
Funny and educational video segments are interspersed with the interactive show, which features lots of audience participation. Kids can volunteer to wear silly hats, learn to dance the polka, compete in a geography quiz, and get down and goofy with Uncle Mike’s original polka songs.
Meanwhile, it’s food service industry night at Varner’s Restaurant and Tavern, while there’s trivia at both Padriac’s (7:30 p.m.) and Twisted Taco (8). Or shuffle on over to Jocks & Jills and catch the Stanley Cup as the Vancouver Canucks will try to secure their first-ever Cup title with a win at Boston
Oh, and from 5 - 7 p.m., everything is half price at Cowlicks Yogurt & Floats in Vinings. Grab a cool treat and head over to the Smyrna Little League where the 9-year-old District II All-Star Tournament continues this evening with games at 6 and 8 p.m. at Brinkley Field.
