July 31

So. For starters, EV Grieve reader Grant sent this photo along knowing that, perhaps, this tree might not be eligible because a) It's artificial and on Greene Street at Waverly Place (maybe beyond EV Grieve's boundaries?) ... and b) well, there is no b. Regardless, there is the Sunday Times for verification.

It's not up to us to decide these things. So we sent the information to Gruber MacDougal, spokesperson for the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring and Summer (ICTTSS). Unfortunately, he is at the Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa in Thailand for an elephant polo tournament and unavailable for comment.

I don't think an artificial tree should be allowed, but above and beyond that, I can't believe that Gruber MacDougal passed up the BMW Guggenheim Lab fiesta. I would've thought he'd have been a keynote speaker there!

Actually, Gruber will be speaking at the Lab. He is all about Urban Think Tanking. Stay tuned for details!

@EV Grieve: I can't wait for this! I hope you post a transcript of his speech!
