Dress Rehearsal in Town Center

The Howard Hughes Corporation held an event at the former Rouse Company headquarters building in Town Center this morning. Invited guests were given flowers, coffee, popcorn, granola, handmade soap and dog biscuits in return for mingling in front of the building.
It was a dress rehearsal of sorts, presumably for Whole Foods Markets though no one would admit that on the record. Sources informed me that HHC had received a tip that the Whole Foods CEO, John Mackey, was going to do a drive by of the building this morning so they decided to dress the building up in retail form just for him. Apparently the deal to bring Whole Foods to the building is almost done and this tour was one of the final hurdles.
HHC could not have asked for a better day. The sun was shining and it was unseasonably warm.
Since we no longer have a dog, I took my dog biscuits over to the only four legged guest, a Newfoundland named Yogi. Yogi approved.
