Hi friends, I know things have been quiet over here for a while. Summer has a way of getting away from us, doesn't it? I have been busy as of late with weekend trips and weddings, but wanted to pop in with a few neighborhood news-worthy items for your first week of September!
- A new tenant was just announced for the recently vacant 3 Tiers spot on 34th Avenue! I'm so excited to hear that a new restaurant will be going into the space. The woman behind Sassy Spoon Food Truck is opening her first bricks-and-mortar location, promising whole foods (looks like mostly gluten-free?), beer and wine, and brunch. An opening date hasn't been set, but it sounds like later this fall is the goal. I can't wait to check it out!
- A new vintage shop has found its home in south Minneapolis! I have loved checking out all the vintage shops along Minnehaha Avenue, and was happy to see another pop up even closer to home. Found on East 54th Street opened up just a month or two ago at the corner of 43rd Avenue and E 54th Street. She woman running the shop told me she used to have a vintage shop in St. Paul years ago and is now open again in Minneapolis after a 6-year hiatus. Jason and I walked out with a great vintage cast iron birdbath at a great price!
- On a more personal note, Jason's sister is getting married at Minnehaha Park this weekend! I have never been to a wedding at the park (but have stumbled upon a couple!), so am definitely excited. Did you know there are three sites at the park where you can get married?
Anything else I have missed? As much as I love summer, I have to admit I'm excited for changing leaves and quieter days around the falls and the creek.
