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.

News from the ANA by Nic Baker
A udubon Pa rk
Re c re a t i o n C e n t e r
There were some changes to the
board composition after the October annual meeting—and some
things stayed the same.
132029thAve.NE•phone:612-370-4910
Audubon Park Update by Mitch Waukau
Audubon will introduce some new and
old programs in the fall, winter, and
spring schedule. 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
