In the week preceding the book sale Friends of Northeast Library volunteers will sort the books and organize for the sale December 2-3.
No plans for a blizzard this year – but then again we didn’t plan on a blizzard during the book sale last year either. And still, thanks to the resilience of shoppers and Friends, we made a handsome profit to enhance the “new” library.

The buzz in Northeast Minneapolis this week is all about what’s cooking at 29th and Johnson. For the past months the neighborhood has mourned the passing of first of Snap, the pizza and ice cream hangout, and more recently, of Pop! Tears were shed as neighbors lamented the loss to the community and to their gustatory options.
The buzz—Hazel’s Northeast will fill the culinary gap. Hazel’s is a family friendly home-style cuisine dream of brothers Andrew and Adam Sieve who hale from Alexandria, MN. Though Hazel’s is their first independent venture, they’ve worked their way up the eatery chain, starting as bus boys in the family restaurant, The Traveler’s Inn, Alexandria’s most venerable family-owned restaurant, opened in 1928 by their grandmother Hazel whose pie-baking enterprise had outgrown her kitchen on the family farm.
Both brothers tried other professions, but are returning to their restaurant roots. They’re working now on décor and delicacies including traditional comfort food that meet the “three square” basics six days a week. They will be open early December – a holiday gift to Northeast residents and to hungry folks throughout the area who prefer a quiet neighborhood haven to the predictable strip mall chain or downtown haute cuisine .
