This is one of my favorite weekends in Lake Worth — the annual Street Painting Festival. We made it up there Sunday, and as usual, the crowd was huge and the art was amazing! One artist was creating a piece that when viewed through a lens set up nearby, the sidewalk art looked 3-D. I am such a fan of the street painting festival, mainly because I lack any significant amount of artsy-ness in my bones, so I’m just in awe of what these artists do.

Here are a couple from the festival, but check out more on my Flickr photostream.

Just thought I’d share a few pictures of my hood these days. I stumbled across another LW’er blog — Lake Worth every minute — and it’s a great showcase of the local faces and places, and it inspired me to post some of my pics. 🙂

It’s always easy to point out the bad in a place, yet hard to remember to look at all the good! I know Lake Worth has so much character and community, and I’m glad it’s my first residence as a homeowner. I love biking downtown for a super cold beer at Little Munich, heading over the bridge for a day at the beach or taking a run through the neighborhoods and seeing so many homes with character.

The house across the street has been empty since the day we moved in. I can’t totally complain, though. The bank-owned property gets groomed every now and then, and I’ve been able to score an extra garbage can to lug out the 10,000 lbs of leaves that collect in my backyard.

The property hasn’t ‘officially’ been up for sale very long, but now it’s going up on the chopping block: a public home auction.

Is this good for my home’s value?

I’m going to cross my fingers, look to the stars and say, “Yes!”

I’m hoping someone scoops it up for a deal — I checked around online and saw ‘starting bids’ of $17K-19K — then fixes it up and moves in. Or, at least, that someone fixes it up and rents it out to awesome people.

When I saw the sign with the dates of a few pre-auction open houses first, I got excited. I really just want a chance to check out the inside of the casa. And I’m interested in seeing how a home auction works. I mean, is a fast-talking host going to stand on a soap box in front of a bunch of cash-heavy investors and homebuyer hopefuls? I didn’t catch anyone over there last Saturday, so I’m hoping I’m around for the next one.

Oh crap … if there’s a next one … I just checked Auction.com, and the property listing says “Bid Pending Confirmation.”

What’s that mean!? Is a sale pending!? I’ll keep you posted!

I finally made it to Yama, the Korean BBQ restaurant in downtown Lake Worth. I’ve always wanted to check this place out, but I’ve just been hesitant as if I’d thought the entire menu would just be in Korean. Or that everything on the menu would be served with eyeballs. Or the waitstaff would know I was a banana — yellow on the outside, white on the inside. 😉

Anywho, I managed to hold out until I could go with some pros. By pros, I mean someone who eats anything — or at least tries anything — and someone who actually lived in South Korea for a year. I figured if they couldn’t help me find something I would eat, nobody could.

But, success! I loved it! Between the six of us at the table, I was able to try a bite of most everything. (I confess, I couldn’t bring myself to try the fishcake.) For starters, we had the seafood pancake, which I thought was actually awesome — minus the seafood part. Yama had a vegetable pancake on the menu as well, and I definitely want to try that next time. Next up, the mains: on the grill we had beef bulgogi (or bulgoki) and spicy pork. And then, of course, all the food flair including kimchi. I can’t believe I tried it. I thought it was incredibly flavorful, but the spice and the pickle-y notes were a bit … uh, too much for me. And then I ordered a beef dumpling soup, which was super good! Oh, and let’s not forget the sake and beer washing it all down!

All in all, definitely worth a second visit!
