On the days I head to the library on lunch I cut through the Veterans' Memorial Park. It's a small square of concrete and grass situated between the Children's museum and a church, across from the Grand Rapids Public Library. In the winter I've noticed several times that on various pedestals syrafoam cups are filled with hot chocolate, steaming in protest at the chill air. 

I'm not sure who puts them there, but i'm sure the people who drink the cups (and judging by the trash bin nearby, the hot chocolate is popular) appreciate the gesture.

Kind of reminds me of the trees festooned with free mittens and hats I ran into last year on Cherry street. They were tied to trees last year with messages of "take me" and "free."

In the evening we watched the State of the State address, to which the cat, as you can see, was engaged.
