If you're feeling bored on Saturday, 4th and Main might be just the spot to provide a bit of entertainment. Stop by Banquette or Lost Souls, grab a cup of coffee, and then sit back and watch elephants. Yes, elephants. For a Bank of America commercial, because we all know banks and elephants are like peas in a pod. The filming description:

Interior, exterior dialogue. Occasional traffic & pedestrian control. Camera and equipment on sidewalk, in curblane & across the street. Driving scenes. Wetting down of the streets. Large equipment. Lights and elephants.

Excitement supposedly takes place somewhere in the way too long window of 7am to 10pm, between Spring and Main on 4th.

And in the interest of making this a public service note rather than just a gawking invitation, also note that 4th will be closed during that time and you'll need to take other routes while driving.
