Yes, There Was a Dancing Kidney Bean in Front of City Hall Today
Shawn P. Williams
Sure, you could build elaborate shade structures and host impromptu lunch parties to enliven the City Hall plaza, or you could just invite a giant, dancing kidney bean. Shawn Williams, Mayor Mike Rawlings' social media guru, was kind enough to pass along a couple of pics of said kidney bean, ahem Billy the Kidney. There were no action shots -- for that you should check out Morning News photog G.J. McCarthy's excellent pic -- but they are pictures of a giant kidney bean. At City Hall. Mingling with your elected leaders.
And what is this guy volunteering for exactly?
I really hope this girl remembers to wash her hands. Like ASAP.
