From Sun Street Breads, 4600 Nicollet:
It’s Dinner Time!
On November 10, we’ll be opening the doors at 5:00pm for dinner. We’re incredibly excited to have chef Annette Colon designing and preparing a range of classic dishes made the Sun Street way.
Annette Colon has been surrounded by talented cooks for most of her life. Born in New York City and raised in Puerto Rico, Annette spent her formative years learning traditional cooking methods of the island with her Grandmother and her friends. This passion for food has led her to work with talented chefs in Key West, Cape Cod, Boulder, Turks and Caicos Islands, Wales and England, and for the past ten years, Annette worked as the Chef de Cuisine at Lucia’s Restaurant and Wine Bar.
We’ll also be offering some of the classics from our lunch menu (Susan sandwich, anyone?), as well as wine (by the glass or bottle) and beer (we’ll be featuring Fulton Sweet Child O’ Mine on tap!) and hot drinks from our espresso bar. And let’s not forget about the incredible desserts that Solveig has dreamed up!
Dinner hours: 5:00-9:00, Tues.-Sat.
Seating will be first come, first serve. Please do call ahead if you plan on arriving with a large party. The bakery and cafe will still be open during our regular hours (6:30am – 2:00pm, 7 days a week).
PROPOSED 2012 MINNEAPOLIS PARK BOARD BUDGET FOCUSES ON NEIGHBORHOOD PARKS
AND PARKWAYS, FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY AND SERVICE DELIVERY
Public comment opportunities scheduled Nov. 9 and 22, Dec. 14
The Superintendent’s Recommended 2012 Budget for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) focuses on neighborhood parks, financial sustainability and enhancing service delivery to the community.
“The Park Board is living within its means with a zero percent property tax levy increase and a proposed operating budget slightly below the 2011 Approved Budget,” explained Superintendent Jayne Miller. “In 2012 the Park Board will focus on reducing operating costs and creating new revenue by maximizing technology, identifying work process improvements, increasing workforce flexibility and investing in neighborhood parks.”
The Superintendent’s Recommended 2012 Budget totals $58,687,896 for the general operating fund, a 0.6 percent reduction from the 2011 approved budget.

On Oct. 30, Prebish, 72, is closing down Shorty & Wags. Sales remain strong — in fact, as news of the closing has circulated the past few days, Wags has occasionally run out of wings before closing time — but Prebish is retiring from full-time work and has decided to close his business and sell the commercial building at 3753 Nicollet Ave. S.
“I’m just getting burned out with the fast pace,” Prebish said. “We sell a lot of wings here, and go through a lot to make this happen.” But don’t expect to find Prebish relaxing on a beach anytime soon. “Retirement,” for him, consists of moving north with his girlfriend to Longville, Minn., and opening a new chicken wing joint in Cass County perhaps as soon as next spring….
