November/December 2014 www.audubonneighborhood.org Holiday Shopping Guide – Support Your Local Businesses – Buy Local by Robin Sauerwein I’m not the only one who misses the Fairview NE Pharmacy on Johnson Street. Although the pharmacy was not a small business, it still held that small-town drugstore feel. The staff knew your name. They cared about their jobs. It just isn’t the same at other chain store pharmacies. Losing Fairview Pharmacy serves as a reminder to me how important it is to patronize the small businesses in the neighborhood, especially this time of year. This holiday season; consider doing more of your holiday shopping in the neighborhood. What might that be like? Before driving in traffic – to wait on congested streets and stop lights on the way to malls – to wait in even more lines at stores to find that perfect gift for someone, consider your local resources first. There may be perfect gifts right under your nose. Let’s start on Johnson Street between 28th & 29th Ave. Here you’ll find an eclectic collection of businesses nestled in the heart of our neighborhood. The Johnson Street merchants who are responsible for community events like Johnstock will hold their annual Gettin’ Gifty in the ‘Hood on Thursday, December 11, from 4-7 pm. First stop by the Coffeeshop Northeast and try some of their popular seasonal drinks. Note: Santa is scheduled to arrive at the Coffeeshop on December 7, 3-5 pm. Now go meet the merchants and get some good deals. Since 2006, Rewind has provided quality vintage clothing and accessories on Johnson Street. In 2013, it won the “Best of” Award by City Pages for best thrift store in Minneapolis. You’ll never know what you’ll find there. My son got an awesome leather jacket that he wore until his arms were too long and he ripped the sleeves out. I call that a great gift. If you’re lucky, you may still find an original “I heart Johnson Street Turkeys” T-shirt designed by Audubon resident Missy Dodge – although I’m told they are a bit scarce. Know a knitter? Pick out some special yarn at Crafty Planet. Maybe she’ll make you a scarf as a gift. Perhaps someone in your family would like to learn to crochet. Why not buy them a gift certificate for a class? A Little reFind, one of the newest shops on Johnson Street, offers all sorts of small, large, and unique household furniture and gift items. A Bag Lady is a woman’s treasure chest, but even a man can get friendly customer assistance here. It might be a bit overwhelming at first to select from all the bags and bling in the store, but it’s possible. My husband has been successful more than once, and it takes him less time than when I go in. There’s a lot of eye candy. Since I stopped making rosettes years ago, I am grateful to Sarah Janes Bakery for the Scandinavian delicacies available each year to make my family happy. Done with Johnson Street but there are still more places to shop on Central Ave! Support the Eastside Food Co-op by buying a loved one a membership or a gift basket of locally produced food and goodies. The co-op’s upcoming expansion has added to the already increased excitement of new development on Central. Check out the two newest businesses: Aki’s Bread Haus and Fair State Brewing Cooperative. And If you like gift certificates, why not buy a few from one of our many quality restaurants in our neighborhood like Chimborazo, Hazel’s Northeast, Sen Yai Sen Lek, Parkway Pizza, Holy Land, and The Coffeeshop Northeast – just to name a few. As a true Northeaster, remember to explore the other great stores, galleries, and restaurants outside of the Audubon neighborhood. Pick up a poinsettia or tree from Mother Earth Gardens, buy a few essential oils or candles from Healing Elements, find your favorite tea at Tea Source, or wine at Stinson Wine, Beer, and Spirits. And don’t forget all the artist studios that make their living in Northeast. I’ve only scratched the surface. Buying local invests in our community. Small businesses that have chosen Northeast as their home would not be here if we didn’t shop. Home is where the heart is. Keep your heart in NE! Residential Organics Drop-Off Started at Audubon Park by Nic Baker We’ve Got Music Right Here in Audubon Park! by Robin Sauerwein Did you know that 40% of what average Minnesotans throw in their garbage could be diverted for composting? Join your neighbors in diverting your organics to recycle into a beneficial product—compost! The Audubon Neighborhood Association, in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling, started the Residential Organics Drop-Off at Audubon Park on September 30. There was some confusion about volunteer coverage and some residents who came to the park found the bins locked. That problem has been solved. Minneapolis residents can now drop off their organic materials at Audubon Park, located at 1320 29th Ave NE. Residents who drop off items will be given a code that they can use to unlock the bin. From that point on, they can use the bin 24 hours/day every day. Residential organics include all food waste (including food you shouldn’t compost in a backyard bin), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials, such as coffee grounds, filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and popsicle sticks. Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted. Residents must drop off their organic materials in a compostable bag (either paper or certified compostable plastic). Larger items, such as pizza boxes and wax-coated boxes, do not need to be bagged. The drop-off will be open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost. Until the end of November, the drop-off will have designated delivery times when volunteers will be on-site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather information from residents that will be used to help craft the message for the future city-wide organics collection program. The drop-off times will be Tuesday 4:00–7:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00–1:00 p.m. For more information on the Audubon Park Residential Organics Drop-Off and other residential organics drop-off locations in the City of Minneapolis, visit minneapolismn.gov/organics. When Camden Music School closed recently, Dave DeGennaro decided to see if his friend Aaron Marks was interested in opening a music school in Northeast Minneapolis. Aaron, who had become friends with Dave in 2011 while working on the “Monkey Mind Pirates “production, said, “It sounds like an intriguing path for us.” Aaron is a recent U of M graduate in law school and former member of the marching band. He agreed that NE was a perfect location for the school. Northeast already had tremendous visual art studios but no music school. Aaron, who was also busy studying for the bar this summer, joined Dave later and said it was like hopping on a train that was already leaving the station. By the end of the summer, things fell into place and they opened the NE Center for Music on Oct. 6 in Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church. Dave and Aaron put a lot of thought into what their school would look like. They asked themselves, “How can we make money and provide a quality product to our students without charging an arm and a leg?” NE Center for Music does not see itself as a traditional music school. “We want to be modern and offer what the people want to see in a school. We wanted to offer more than one style,” Aaron said. Dave and Aaron want to stay responsive to what people want, so when they first opened and people inquired about voice lessons, they answered. Dave gathered his pool of acquaintances and found a voice teacher. “I think it’s a healthy way to build a new business,” Aaron said. He also said that there are a lot of different points of entry for the person who has other passions in life and music is a hobby. “We want to be thoughtful in the way we start and make it positive for everyone.” Both Aaron and Dave are grateful to Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church for allowing them space for their new school. Aaron said that they have been both welcoming and supportive. Currently, the school holds lessons in voice, piano, violin, viola, drums, bass and guitar Lessons are held Mon – Thursday, 3-9 pm, and Saturday 9 am -1 pm. Look for an open house soon and a grand opening in January. You can find out more by going to their website at www. necenterformusic.com. 2 Audubon Home Page Remember!

For detailed information and registration, visit us online at www.minneapolisparks.org or stop in to check out the flyers. Jessica Kracl, whose term ends this year, decided not to continue on the board. She has been very busy with other commitments, not the least of which is her infant daughter, Anderson. Jessica has been the board secretary for the past year—not an easy task—and her many contributions will be missed. Secondly, Sean Koebele resigned from the board. He has a new job with Habitat for Humanity that places considerable demands on his time, including tying up evenings. Once again, there is an infant child involved, who tends to take a little time now and again. Among other contributions to the board, Sean managed the farmers’ market and is largely responsible for the event’s success the last two years. Sean will be missed, as well. The first program that will be geared towards families with children is called “Parents Time Out.” This program will take place on the 1st and 3rd Fridays Mitch Waukau of each month from 6pm – 9pm. Here are the dates for the 2014 schedule: 11/7, 11/21, 12/5, and 12/19. Eachdatewillcost$12.50/perchild.Thechildrenwillbefed and entertained while the parents have a nice night out. Meanwhile, three members whose term expires this year ran for and were elected to subsequent terms: We have added dodge ball (Monday) and floor hockey (Wednesday) from 6pm – 7:30 pm. The programs will start the week of 11/3 and end 12/17. This free program is for ages 6 – 12. Adam Sieve is the co-owner of Hazel’s NE, He and his wife moved to Audubon about two years ago, so he is both a business owner and resident. He has been the liaison between the board and the business community as well as taking part in board strategic-planning activities. Adam has also been responsible for Hazel’s generous donations to various neighborhood events. Santa Brunch is coming back to Audubon and will take place Saturday, December 20 from 10:30 am – 12:30pm. We will have pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage (different options for everyone’s taste/choice), fruit, and beverages. We will also be having a gingerbread house-making craft and will have all the goodies you need to make a yummy gingerbread house. Only the children will be able to make gingerbread houses. There will be pre-registration required and fees will apply for Santa brunch and gingerbread house craft. Make sure to register each participant who is eating. Melissa Haugesag has lived in Audubon since 2000. Her husband, Egan, was a member of the board in years past. Melissa’s 13-year-old daughter is a student at NEMS, and Melissa is the head of her Girl Scout troop. She also teaches crochet at Crafty Planet. Nic Baker joined the board shortly after moving to the neighborhood in 2010. He was president of the board for two years, then vice-president. He is currently serving as interim president until the board elects next year’s officers. Nic also contributes to the community newsletter. During the Winter/Spring 2015 schedule we will host a Valentines Dance and a Spring Egg Hunt for the whole family. More details to follow during the upcoming newsletter. Winter/Spring 2015 program registration will start on Monday, December 8, at 6pm. Make sure to register early for all gymnastic programs. Space is limited and programs will fill up fast. The community elected a new member to the board: Terri Harder. Terri has lived in Audubon for 14 years and has been a realtor for 12. Her joining the board is largely the result of her interest in promoting the things that make this a desirable neighborhood, such as supporting local businesses and activities and crime prevention. She is a past board member, having served in the mid 2000s. Audubon Park hours are the following; Monday – Thursday 3:00pm – 9:00pm, Friday 3:00pm – 6:00pm, and closed on the weekends. Audubon is always looking for new programs, so if you have a class or program you can run stop down and talk to Mitch. If you are looking for a place to throw birthday parties, call or stop by to inquire information about fees and scheduling. There are eight board members now, leaving one vacancy. If you are interested in devoting a few hours a month while keeping up on what’s happening in the neighborhood, please contact the ANA office. Any questions or comments, contact Mitch at Audubon Park 612-370-4910. 4 EDISON NEWS NEWS FROM NE MIDDLE SCHOOL EDISON’S OPEN HOUSE Thursday, November 13th from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Edison High School presents a classroom experience at our International Baccalaureate World School.
