"Erie rocks harder than any other city!"

By Memorial Day, the Crawford County Convention and Visitors Bureau will have a new Underground Railroad driving tour covering Crawford, Erie, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango and Warren counties.

Sounds like the 13th annual Spring Fever Music Festival went off without a hitch last weekend in Cambridge Springs.

The Meadville Trib is running a really nice series on starting an independent restaurant in NWPA.

The Erie Zoo has four new baby warthogs.

Tired of all those pesky vowels? You say you want to llearn Welsh? Pal, you are in lluck. Erie County library card holders now have the chance to learn another language, including Arabic, Italian, Russian, Swahili and Welsh, online -- for free. All you need is a library card from the Erie County Public Library or any of the other public libraries in Erie County.
For more information, call 451-6911.

Train was in Erie and hauled out every classic rock chestnut available. No word on if they used, "Erie rocks harder than any other city!" or, "You know, we've been all around the world, but Erie girls are the hottest!" or "We just wish we could take you all on tour with us!" But smart money says, "yup."

Non local, but interesting:

Author Neil Gaiman talks to Time Europe about his current list of projects, including writing the screenplay for the film adaptation of Charles Burns' graphic novel, Black Hole. (via largeheartedboy)
