Today is the big day.  The grand opening of Jimi Hendrix Park in Seattle's Central District.  I had the pleasure of sitting down with Janie Hendrix Friday afternoon to give us the final word on the park project.  Thank you Rockaholics for your help building Jimi Hendrix Park!  Details on this afternoon's festivities are below.  We'll see you there!
