Mason's celebrates grand opening drink specials and free appetizers
Benjamin Carter Grimes
Today marks the start of Mason's Restaurant and Barre's weeks-long grand opening extravaganza. The new eatery on the corner of 6th Street and Hennepin Avenue just recently opened their doors to the public on the street level of The Cowles Center for the Performing Arts.
"We wanted to formally introduce ourselves to our neighbors through a number of smaller-scale, accessible events," says general manager and part-owner of Mason's, Lucas Miller, in a release. "And, then, to demonstrate that we also know how to do things on a grander scale, we added a flash mob," he added.
Here's a list of all the festivities over the next couple weeks.
