friday night we had the best accidental encounter.mesa urban garden project. we had stopped by there once before to see what it was all about and it was still in it's very early stages.
<<what i wore>>
head scarf//vintage (similar here)
we then asked him about the progress of the restaurant next door, Republica Empanda, another new project we had been keeping our eye on. he told us to go over there and talk to the owner, he was in there now.
we were so excited to get a glimpse of it before it opened, and boy oh, boy, we were not disappointed.
the building has been a life-time favorite of mine, and i had actually always dreamed of owning it and turning it into an amazing vintage clothing shop or a specialty soda bar, but when i saw that it went to someone who truly understood it's beauty and design, I couldn't have been happier for marco. marco is so nice and really passionate about mesa and bringing it back to life, and i love people like that.
i can't wait for them to open officially (Early April) so we can give them a try!
marcus basking in the idea of not having to drive to tempe, scottsdale or phoenix just to go somewhere cool and local to eat...
if you live in arizona or ever plan to come for a visit, you should like their pages on facebook to show support of some really great projects!
