Travail plans a pop-up restaurant for north Minneapolis
From the team that brought you everything on this specials board, an upcoming month-long pop-up spot
Travail's co-owners Mike Brown, Bob Gerken, and James Winberg have been keeping busy this summer, but somehow between all the sauce-slinging and smoke-spooning at Pig Ate My Pizza, barbecuing at their block party, and planning the upcoming Rookery, plus the return of the re-vamped Travail (whew), the trio has also found time to come up with a concept for a month-long pop-up restaurant, reports the StarTribune.
In an effort to raise some much-needed funds for Travail: The Saga Continues, the team has decided to go the route of the Kickstarter campaign rather than look for more conventional investors. The campaign launches in early September, and backers can look forward to thank-yous in the form of anything from a "Men and Women of Travail" calendar to unlimited reservations for a year when the restaurant (which will have a no-reservations policy) re-opens.
