I took a quick glance at the weather forecast for this week and looks like prime outdoor dining/drinking weather – at least for the next couple days. Today, the Minneapolis City Council’s regulatory services committee listened to a presentation about the licensing process for bars and restaurants that want to add rooftop and sidewalk dining.
I won’t go into details about the presentation, but if you’re curious, here’s a link to the Powerpoint. If you’re not, here are couple interesting tidbits.
In Minneapolis there are:
14 rooftop establishments
300 sidewalk cafe and outdoor areas
Also, speaking of outdoor dining, the committee also approved three mobile food vendor licenses. Original Turkey and World Street Kitchen look to be adding new food trucks. And Barrio Tequila bar applied for their first. Council member Lisa Goodman, who represents most of downtown Minneapolis welcomed the news and said Barrio will be rolling out a taco truck.
Where do you rooftop in Minneapolis?
