Minneapolis, New Years Eve, Thank you

02 Jan

Blue Moon, Corner Table, Tour de Farm Tent

I just wanted to take a moment this morning to thank everyone who grew, cooked, decorated, served, ate, drank and in any other way were involved in the wonderful evening we had last night. It truly does take a leap of faith to come out on one of the coldest nights of the year to a tent set up in the middle of a Minneapolis street, and that’s just what you did. You’re amazing. Thank you all.
