Detail from map for the 2013 JP Open Studios

Hello neighbors. It’s your Monday edition of the Morning Memo for all things JP.

JP Open Studios is This Weekend: That rite of fall, JP Open Studios, is Saturday and Sunday. It’s your chance to see dozens of local artists and their latest creations. (And, you know, buy some local art.) Here’s this year’s map. Also, the Open Studios web site is a great tool. And the Gazette has a well-done break-down of good itineraries based on how much time you have.

City Launches Pilot Food-scrap Composting Program: Somehow JP wasn’t chosen as one of the two main test sites (that distinction went to the North End and East Boston) this year. Last year, Egleston Farmer’s Market was a test site, a resident reports. But the city has established a drop-off for compostable food scraps at the Roslindale Farmer’s Market (i.e., for now, the Commuter Rail parking lot above Roslindale Square) on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

JP Beer Garden “Pop-Up” Restaurant: Monday night is the second of three “pop-up” nights by the crew hoping to open an Alsatian-style restaurant in JP. I’m not sure if it’s sold out or not. It’s at Vee Vee, 763 Centre St., 6:30-9:30 p.m. Monday.

For more of what’s going on in the neighborhood, visit the Jamaica Plain News calendar. And here’s how to add your group or business’ event to the calendar.

[Editor’s note: Thanks, Rhea Becker, for the updated info on the city’s composting pilot program. We’ve updated this post.]

    Actually, last year JP’s Egleston Farmers Market was a site for a city pilot composting program. Guess they’re still testing it out. It was a hit here, but when the pilot ended there was a lot of disappointment.
