Q:other than looking bad is a weeping mortar joint a good strong joint ? I'm looking at a house that was built in 1965 and other than the cement weeping out its not a bad looking house. And if it's a strong joint how hard is it to remove the weep ?
Thanks for the interesting question, unfortunately it appears you want to speak with someone who knows about construction or masonry, but alas we only know about art and community. We are a small community arts organization in Cocoa, Fl. Sorry for the confusion.
Open Mic Night Turns 1!
Join us tonight at 8:30 pm in the Brick & Mortar studios for our 1 year anniversary of Open Mic Night. It’s the best night of the month for us because we get to simply open up our space and share it with anyone with a song in their heart, a poem on their lips and of course, an interpretive dance move emanating from their hips.
Admission is 100% free, with beverages available upon donation and free popcorn for everyone!
So come and join us, and bring a friend. Sign up starts at 8:30 pm, and we’ll get started closer to 9 pm.

Dear friends & fellow builders,
We hope your holiday season was bright and oh so merry. We wanted to let you know we will not be having a Open Mic Night this month, as we are all taking a bit extra time with our families. But, we will resume hosting Open Mic every last wednesday of the month in January 2012. We sincerely hope to see you in the New Year.
Where’s the GOLD at?
Join our friends the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra for a Gold Party & Fundraiser on Thursday Dec. 15 from 6:30-10 pm in our studios. You can bring your unwanted gold jewelry, rings, earrings, even broken things, and exchange it for CASH. Food, drink, music and lots of gold merriness to accompany. Even better, the SCSO will benefit 10% of gold exchange earnings. It’s a win win.
