The Wonder Fair art gallery has moved from its basement digs below the Casbah Market to new digs above the Casbah, at 803 1/2 Massachusetts in Lawrence. They're not quite moved in yet. Much like taking when you get your first apartment, but before you move in the couches, they're having a party tonight.
Starting at 7:00 p.m., you'll be able to check out the new space before they move in all the artwork. In addition, you can see performances from the California Craisins, Fourth of July, and the Team Bear Club All-Stars featuring Greg Enemy and Morris Mars.
It's $3 at the door, and runs until 11:00 p.m., meaning you can pop across the street and around the corner to catch most of Turnt Up at the Taproom when you're done. You can thank me for planning your awesome Friday night later.

Kansas Secretary of State candidate Kris Kobach scored a victory earlier this month in Arizona with the passing of what's been called a "landmark" law that gives Arizona police the power to arrest anyone they believe to be immigrants (with "reasonable suspicion," of course) who cannot show proof of citizenship during the course of a law enforcement action, such as a traffic stop. Kobach helped write the law, and he's basking in the media spotlight, including an op-ed in the New York Times.
Time called the bill "the toughest anti-illegal-immigrant measure in a generation." Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill into law a week ago.
"There are some things that states can do and some that states can't do,
but this law threads the needle perfectly," Kobach told Time.

The JP Wine Bar downtown is still open, but the end of its Leawood branch isn't surprising to at least one former employee (he asked to remain nameless) who told me a month ago that he expected the Leawood restaurant to close soon: "It's leached all the money out of the company," he said.

In the meantime, the chairs, tables and bar inside the Leawood storefront are just waiting for a new owner to come in and turn it into something different.

This statement is posted on the club's Web site: "At this time the ownership announces that The Black Flag Club will not be open for business. We thank you for your support."
Tonight was supposed to be the debut of the Black Flag Club, an under-21 nightclub that's been the center of a lot of arguing this week due to owner Charles Juba's ties to the white power movement. But the club will remain closed for now because it hasn't met city codes.
During an Odessa Board of Alderman meeting last night, Juba tried to defend himself against a mob of angry people who didn't want a neo-Nazi running a club for their kids. They got their way for now.

It's not hard to find an unused school building in Kansas City. Yet the fight for possession of one empty schoolhouse reached the Missouri Court of Appeals.
The court recently ruled in favor of the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council, which wants to turn the old Horace Mann School near 39th and Garfield into senior housing. Upholding the decision of Jackson County Judge Justine Del Muro, the Court of Appeals said a city agency failed to act in good faith with the neighborhood group.
