Lots of local Kickstarter action with Gyst (A Fermentation Bar) cruising toward its $40K goal and bean-to-bar folks Meadowlands Chocolate angling for $8K. A nice profile on the Brake Bread team (we talked to them here). Our own James Norton and Becca Dilley are off to the North Folk Winery this Thursday for a Lake Superior Flavors event, and the book gets some nice ink in the Chicago Tribune. The MIA interviews owner Greg Hoyt and coffee buyer Stephanie Ratanas of Dogwood. A new classic-style steak and seafood place called The Salt Cellar will be opening on Cathedral Hill in St. Paul. Dara previews the next Kim Bartmann project, The Third Bird. And Bauhaus Brew Labs and Libertine are now open.
