The playground near us had it’s grand opening today – and Joe cut the ribbon!
Thanks to the many people – including many of you reading this – who rallied around Joe (and Lia!), all new equipment was installed this week. Team Joe raised more than $2,000, and over the past few months Joe has become the face of the project. Fittingly, the city’s Parks & Rec department gave him the honor of officially opening the place.

A big final thanks to every member of Team Joe! The playground was bumping tonight, so your support has already been well worth it. You’re all invited to join Joe on the swings. Thanks!
Joe learned through the grapevine that he’s mutual fans with a member of the band Motion City Soundtrack. Yes, you read that right. And yes, that’s kind of a big deal.
He got to meet incredi-bassist Matthew Taylor over pizza the other night. Things got electric. No deals were signed or anything, but you could tell both of these guys came away from the session greater than they went in.
If you found this post through anything Motion City Soundtrack, welcome!
Joe is legendary along the East Coast. He’s got dozens of views on YouTube, and at five is already a favorite for prom king. He knows good music, and isn’t afraid to tell you your fly’s down. Think the Dos Equis guy with a side of Bill Brasky. Throw in a little Justin Timberlake (Sexy Back, not ramen hair). Shrink that and put glasses on it. Bam! You got Joe.
