Thank you to the City Pages for spreading the word about the Grains for Health Foundation’s “GrainUp Twin Cities” dine out event!

Brenda has been working with Grains for Health for a few years and was happy to be interviewed by the City Pages to spread knowledge to the Twin Cities about the importance of Whole Grain in all our meals, especially when we are dining out!

During the major Water Main Break on Hennepin Ave & 2nd Street, many neighboring businesses, restaurants, and even the Guthrie, were forced to close.

Not Spoonriver. Brenda is a trooper and wanted to stay open for our neighbor, friends and our guests who had reservations.

WCCO stopped in and interviewed Brenda about how we were managing with No Water! We used paper plates while our dishwashers in inoperable, and used bottled water to cook and serve! It was the true meaning of “Making it Work”.

If your plans at the Guthrie were canceled that night, please call us when you reschedule! We’d love to host you :).

Check out more info about the Water Main Break and the Interview with Brenda HERE!
