Developers of The Dayton's Project have announced plans to transform the former JB Hudson Jewelers store into a restaurant space open to the public in spring 2020. Located at Nicollet and 8th Street, the restaurant will include indoor and outdoor patio seating and a dedicated entrance on Nicollet.

“Converting the JB Hudson space into a restaurant will offer a completely original dining experience in one of the most historic and iconic buildings in Minneapolis,” says Tricia Pitchford, principal and senior vice president of leasing, Mid-America Real Estate.

In addition to the soon-to-be restaurant in JB Hudson, The Dayton's Project will also house a 45,000-square-foot food hall and market curated by James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Zimmern and Robert Montwaid of Gansevoort Market in New York. 

“The variety of fresh, local food offerings you will find at The Dayton’s Project is unparalleled in the Twin Cities,” says Pitchford. “This project has a world-class culinary team launching the food hall, and together with a new restaurant opportunity in JB Hudson, elevates the Minneapolis dining landscape.”

Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
