Forepaugh's closed unexpectedly on Saturday, following the death of their chef last month to the flu.

I have not heard that. Nothing on the East Side FB group that I could find, either.

The Pioneer Press is reporting that Mac's Fish and Chips has closed their location on Snelling. No details on the reason, but the article notes that the location had been open for two and a half years... and somehow, I never got around to stopping in!

I saw there was something about a liquor license for a new establishment going into the old Ward 6 space in the latest city council meeting. It’s called “East side bar”. Anyone know anything about it?

Same owner. I don't know if they're going to keep the Ward 6 name, but I think the menu will different. The wood floor has been refurbished and apparently the basement was redone.

Glad to hear it’s the same owner! I really miss that place.

The Happy Gnome will close this Sunday. According to this KARE11 article, they decided not to renew their lease on Selby.
