Several NIEHS employees working out of Nottingham Hall took advantage of free food and music at the annual Imperial Center Live at Lunch on May 3 in the Chelsea Place parking lot. The event took place during the hours of noon and featured the rock and roll cover band Groovetown, fast food courtesy of Arby's and information booths for Imperial businesses and triangle non-profits.

For people who attended Live at Lunch, cooler temperatures and overcast skies were a welcome break from the day before when temperatures had reached the high eighties and the sun was bright. Although Groovetown covered some lively hits of the seventies and eighties, the office types in Chelsea Place, Nottingham and other Imperial properties were too busy eating and socializing to get up and move.
