Rolanda - info about how the money was raised was included in the first several stories written about the venue; I wasn't trying to write a 'report' or a news story so much as a feature offering a look at the new theater a month deep into its opening. Capitol Theatre is a nonprofit venture owned by the City of Clearwater and operated by Ruth Eckerd Hall Foundation (also a nonprofit); fundraisers, grants and patron donations are typically the methods employed to raise capital for nonprofits. The City purchased the building; REH raised the funds, managed the renovation and is operating the venue.
Didn't Elvis cop the majority of his music from other (not famous, African American) blues artists? So, what does that say about Elvis?
Coastline was also held in West Palm Beach, on the following day (Sun., Nov. 10).
Awesome news! Finally ate there for the first time, took my mom and she loved it! Everyone at Casita was so dang friendly, good to know this place isn't going away...
I love how you touch on the Once Upon a Time love triangle (didn't Mulan used to be in love with Aurora's man?). I thought it was pretty funny also, in the episode, how they made Mulan a tad more masculine than usual and Sleeping Beauty way way feminine.
