This has been an especially long winter, but while we wait for the seasons to change, we may as well celebrate some changes around the Glens Falls area. From big honors to relocations, there’s a lot going on for Glens Falls institutions like Trampoline Design, the Hyde Museum, and Bullpen Tavern.
The Bullpen Reopens
Nine months after a fire that damaged the Bullpen Tavern in June of 2013, the restaurant and bar has reopened. The building had to be gutted, but the Bullpen’s owners took the tragedy and turned it into an opportunity to create a new and improved space. With a private banquet space above, a new kitchen, and state of the art televisions, the Bullpen is looking better than ever. The reopening is just in time for the State High School Basketball Tournament.
The Hyde Featured in Boston Globe
The Hyde Collection is a cornerstone Glens Falls institution, but to many visitors, it’s a hidden gem. The article tells the story of the Hyde as a quintessential American museum – one that marries industry and art. Read the article here
Trampoline Design Wins 9 Silver ADDYs
The Albany Ad Club American Advertising Awards celebrate the best creative ideas and execution in print, online, and broadcast advertising. Trampoline Design, a Glens Falls business specializing in design and strategic marketing, took home 9 of the silver awards, called ADDYs, at the March 7 ceremony.
Among the 9 different campaigns that garnered Trampoline with silver awards were campaigns for the Glens Falls BID Take A Bite, Fountain Square Outfitters, Adirondack Theatre Festival, GF Inurance, Adirondack Mountain Club, and more local businesses. See the designs that took home the awards here
Minky Mink moves to Glen Street
The women’s clothing boutique, Minky Mink, recently moved from their Ridge Street location to an ideal location on Glen Street. The space was formerly occupied by Sterling & Company, whose owners decided to close the store after successfully opening ShoreHaven Kitchen Design. The move will bring Minky Mink more foot traffic, but will also give visibility to their trendy, unique clothing and accessories. Stop in and see the new storefront at 203 Glen Street.
Broad Street Reconstruction Begins
If you hadn’t noticed the big sign reading warning you to “Seek Alt. Routes,” the Broad Street reconstruction project has begun. The sidewalks, streets, and infrastructure of Broad Street will be rehabilitated from the Pine & New Pruyn intersection down to the Broad & Hudson Ave intersection. Good riddance to those potholes!
Salvation Army Moves to Broad Street
The Salvation Army has moved from Chester Street to 37 Broad St, in the former St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic School building. With double the space, a commercial kitchen, and air conditioning, the upgraded building will help the Salvation Army better serve the community. Attend the open house to see the new space tonight from 5-8 pm.
Stay tuned for new honors and changes in the Glens Falls Region (like the much anticipated opening of SPoT Coffee Cafe – whenever that is!)
