It was a two-for-one ribbon-cutting March 16 when the Midway Chamber of Commerce welcomed Knoke’s Chocolates & Nuts and the Park 24 apartment building to the corner of Doswell and Como avenues. Here, Dave Knoke cuts the ribbon inside his chocolate shop, which opened in St. Anthony Park just before Thanksgiving. This is Knoke’s second shop. His first opened in 2000 in Hudson, Wis. Below, Ned Wesenberg, proprietor of Park Service and Park 24, cuts the ribbon outside his building, which opened last fall. A little secret we learned at the ribbon-cutting: Park 24’s name was derived from the number of apartments that were planned for the building. Turns out, there are 25 apartments in the building.
