Hyde Park Giant Fork Impaled with Heart

The Austin, Texas, Giant Fork with Attachments needs an update. I checked it out and found out that the giant fork has now impaled a giant heart.

[Christy LaSalle, 02/25/2017]

The fork was designed so that all sorts of items could be stuck on it. The heart? We'd guess it had something to do with Valentine's Day, and might be gone by now.

Giant Fork with Attachments

A giant fork stands outside Hyde Park Bar & Grill, there since 1982. It is regularly "updated" with different art pieces on top -- holiday, seasonal and current event items -- wrapped around or otherwise attached.
