Letter to the editor: Thanks to the fun businesses at Raymond and University

For the last nine years, a friend and I have organized a fall scavenger hunt for our co-workers. This past Saturday afternoon, the latest version used the Green Line from Snelling to Raymond avenues. Seven costumed teams of four hustled from business to business, performing silly tasks and taking photos.

The consensus at the after-party was that this race was the most fun of them all, and we owe that to the enthusiastic cooperation we received from every business we approached. The racers especially enjoyed the great vibe of the University and Raymond area. Many vowed to return and explore it more thoroughly.

For their open-minded spirit, the Gnome-Masters feel we should publicly thank the fun and friendly folks at Barely Bros. Records, Hampden Park Co-op, Junk Love, MidModMen+Friends, Roller Revolution, Sharrett’s Liquor Store, Succotash, as well as Ax-Man and the Love Doctor.
