Crown Heights This Week: Presidents, Pretzels, and Motion Pictures

Just a smattering of happenings in our neck of the woods this week (in addition to missing the longer, rambling, reflective posts, I'm also really going to miss postings on days like today, when Crown Heights appears to be a stage for all the world).

- President Obama will visit the neighborhood this Friday to celebrate the achievements of students at Pathways Technology Early College High School. The school was cited in the president's State of the Union address as a model for educational innovation earlier this year.

- Pelzer's Pretzels has earned a nod from the Brooklyn Paper as "the best thing we ate this week."

- The Crown Heights Film Festival is underway this week, with screenings nightly. Complete listings and information are available at their website.

- I couldn't find a synonym for leave that began with a "p," so they didn't make the alliterative subject line (botanists, feel free to correct me here), but the folks over at the Roger That Garden Project are collecting leaves. Complete info on the flyer below.
