I’ve been walking by this spot for a few weeks now, waiting to see what it’ll finally look like when it opens. When they initially started working on it, I asked the kids sitting outside, “Hey, what’s this place gonna be?”.
One of them replied while smoking a cigarette and gesturing with a PBR, “You know, like a vintage store, slash art gallery, slash fucking rad place to hang out.”
Will The Good Shop be the ultimate new hipster hangout? That remains to be seen, but I can tell you that it will be pretty cracking tonight. Starting at 8pm, there will be live music, FREE drrrrrinks (while until they last), local art, vintage clothes, and a shit ton of kids in really tight pants. Plus I think they even have an arcade game. I would totally be there tonight, but I’m going to Shoreline to see The Dead, fingers crossed that I don’t get dosed.
