    It’s nice to see that the ball rolling here, but even this plan seems a little flawed.

    Midnight shutdown? Why not 3am?

  2. Seems like the people with Bar LaGrassa are serving up a slow pitch over home plate with the idea of street vendor items around the downtown area and more important the New Target stadium!
    Welcome Cart LaGrassa and the menu items are still ” Cloudly with a chance of Meatballs” but my guess is ball park customers will be walking into traffic with the smell of truffle oil and bacon in the drifting winds from Cart LaGrassa
