Rise and shine, JP. Here’s your Morning Memo for Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Noodle Barn is Open: JP’s newest restaurant has been open several days now. It’s a Vietnamese/Thai eatery at the former Ban Chiang House location, 707 Centre St. Noodle Barn’s proprietors are experienced, as they already run Pho and I across from the Huntington Theatre. We last wrote about them in March, when Napat Shriwannavit and Phunthip Sittwirachote had hoped for a June opening.

Chorus for Third- to Sixth-Graders: A new chorus open to students attending any JP school is meeting Wednesdays 3:45-5 p.m. at the Mission Hill K-8 School, 20 Child St.

Mock-up of a 'Choose Fresh & Local' license plate

Build Support for a “Choose Fresh & Local” Food License Plate: As a reader of Jamaica Plain News, you clearly understand the value of items produced freshly and locally (like this web site.) You can help support the state’s food economy with a specialty license plate that supports local food. Organizers need to impress the RMV with a long list of people who want to pay extra to have a plate like this before it becomes a reality. Here’s how to reserve one of the plates.

City Council Preview: I checked over the agenda for this week’s City Council meeting, which starts at noon Wednesday. Nothing clearly affecting JP jumped out. One item of note is that School Committee Member Margaret McKenna has resigned (it was expected, as she takes on a state-wide role in education leadership). That means if you or someone you know wants a shot at the seat, he or she needs to get the lobbying campaign in gear (the mayor appoints the School Committee.)

OK, that’s all. Have a great day, JP.
