Happy Holidays friends!
A little snowfall, and I am reminded that no city presents a better holiday face than downtown Saint Paul. This week Visit Saint Paul brought the community together for its annual tradition of hosting a Saint Paul food and beverage sampler, and I thought of a couple belated items for my Thanksgiving gratitude list: 1) How lucky we are to have such a fantastic community of chefs, brewers, and baristas surrounding us in downtown Saint Paul. And 2) I am grateful to have such great partners in Visit Saint Paul that do so much promote our downtown to the rest of the world.
Much is happening this weekend. The High Bridge is officially celebrating its reopening after what seemed like 2.5 eternities. The European Christmas Market is back again this year at the Union Depot. And finally, near and dear to my heart, I want to thank and congratulate Kristin Makholm, her staff, and the board of
for bringing this treasured institution back to life. The M reopens this week – another huge step forward for downtown cultural life, and a key investment in this important corner of downtown. I hope to see you there on Sunday.
See you all around (down)town,
The Saint Paul Downtown Alliance
