Some updates from around the Chaska area:
- The big story, obviously, has been the stabbing death outside of Kelley’s Bar last Friday. Concerns about unruly patrons at Kelley’s have been bubbling below the surface for a while, but the recent robbery combined with this tragic event have brought those concerns to the fore. Owner Kelley Sharp will be meeting with city officials today to discuss the path forward, especially as it relates to the renewal of the bar’s liquor license.
- My family ate at Le Bistro Tourville for the first time over the weekend. The food and service were both quite good. I had the Chaska Cheesesteak and my wife had the Margherita flatbread. Portion sizes were best suited to lunch, as opposed to dinner.
- In case you haven’t heard yet, Kwik Trip is going in at the former Gas Depot location in Jonathan Square.
- 2008 CHS grad Brad Hand makes his major league debut today for the Florida Marlins, starting against the Atlanta Braves. Hand was 7-1 with a 3.53 ERA for Florida’s Double-A team in Jacksonville this season.
