Joan’s On Third

Six months into the pandemic, it is still so shocking to look at pre-coronavirus pictures of what life used to be like and how even small life rituals, such as eating inside a busy Joan’s on Third every weekend, was something I didn’t realize would soon be drastically changed.

The show revolves around building massive flower structures, not your everyday flower arrangements, but true structures … More The Big Flower Fight
