More drinking, more art

Continuing to slake the thirst

At this morning’s Design Review Committee meeting, approval was given to two new projects in downtown Avondale: 41st Street Pub and Aircraft Sales (pictured ab0ve in a photo rendering at the corner of 41st Street South and 2nd Avenue), which will be located in the Avondale Bricks development (full disclosure: this office designed that project a few years back); and Incubate Gallery, which will locate next door. These new businesses join Avondale Brewing Company, Saw’s, Parkside, Bottletree, and a rejuvenated Avondale Park to continue the development momentum of this historic area just east of downtown.

More slaking

A few blocks west, Hop City (2900 block of 3rd Avenue South, photo rendering above) presented plans for signage for its new emporium of craft beers, wines, home brewing equipment, etc. Nothing short of a beer renaissance is occurring in this town. And that’s a welcome change after many generations of old-fashioned, Prohibition-era restrictions that have finally fallen away (mostly). Cheers.
