Tour de Lakewood

When: Sun., Sept. 12 2010

There's nothing quite like a "vernacular Victorian with arts & crafts elements" or a "southern-inspired cottage situated in a high-garden paradise" to reinforce just exactly how much your own home resembles a trash can. Today's Tour de Lakewood makes for a nice change of pace from this summer's woeful dinner-and-a-movie fare. Just be forewarned: Residential walking tours have the effect of exacerbating certain emotional tides in any relationship. This likely stems from the fact that everything with estrogen really does love flowers and everything with testosterone (as the result of some peculiar primordial mishap) secretly or unconsciously honors gardening above all things. Weird dynamics emerge. But it just might be the balm your turbulent romance is needing. Fifteen buckaroos for a charming afternoon (1-6 p.m.) with six of Lakewood's finest. Tickets can be purchased at the Beck Center, Rozi's Wine House, Local Girl Gallery, Geiger's Clothing & Sports, and the Lakewood Historical Society. — Allard
