A huge thanks to everyone who came out for Three Days on Thorndale! The Thorndale and Broadway corridor was extremely vibrant.
The Broadway Armory Kitchen was opened to the public for the first time. Under the management of the Peterson Garden Project, this state-of-the-art teaching kitchen will become a space for learning programs, fun events and more focused on healthy, sustainable and nutritious food. Last night community members were invited to chime in on the type of programming they’d like to see in the kitchen. My office and PGP co-host two more “discovery nights” this summer for people to come explore the kitchen. Stay tuned for more details.
We also celebrated the opening of the new MB Bank Branch. Anchoring the southwest corner of Thorndale and Broadway, the new MB Bank brings light, color and a modern building to the Thorndale corridor. Another business, Edgewater Workbench, has opened at 1130 W. Thorndale. They are open for a preview and 3D printing demo during Three Days on Thorndale.
