Never having been to a public budget hearing and feeling righteous indignation over the proposal to zero out all funding for Community Based Organizations in an effort to save money by literally taking food out of people's mouths Short Order made its way to the Government Center (111 NW 1st Street) for yesterday's public budget hearing.
Public outrage voiced itself in the form of signs, shirts, chants, and a que of community members who spoke on public record for two minutes each, and in some cases more, from 5 p.m. clear through til after midnight.
All that civic duty made us hungry. Short Order ate a dinner of two croquetas de jamon, an empanada de pollo, 4 sugar cookies, and a 16 0z. coffee from Bottega Express. The cookies were really good, everything else was just sustenance. Here are some pictures...
