Misfit's Collective to REOPEN With New Concept 🍹🍽

You may have heard that Misfit’s Collective closed this last week in order to remodel their space to a new concept. The new restaurant will be Mezcalito Butcher. Tony, who is the Owner of Mezcalito Butcher as well as a Co-Owner of many other restaurants including Bourbon Butcher & Volstead House, shared a heartfelt "thank you" to the community on Facebook. He said they love Apple Valley but managed to confuse patrons with various levels of service that was noble to try but admittedly just didn’t work. This new concept will will feature craft cocktails, a huge agave list and Minnesota’s first Mezcal bar.

Tonight we will be at their private “soft opening” to get staff fine tuned with their full opening being this Friday (tomorrow).

They promise the best happy hour and late night specials around with free chips/salsa, $5 happy hour margaritas and buy one/get one draft beers and wine. 9-close they will have 1/2 price tacos, 1/2 priced tequila, mezcal and margaritas.

I never understood how the concept was so hard for everyone to figure out lol I really liked it and thought it was unique so I'm sad it didn't work out but I'm happy they didn't have to close for good and I'm excited to try this new restaurant!

Hope Luing Madison Bredt looks like we have to go back and try it out for happy hour 🍹🤣❤️

Glad to see the owner of Bourbon Butcher is going in there….the restaurant should be a success…..can’t wait to try!

I liked it before and will definitely step in now as well

Looking forward to it!

EVENT RECAP: Ribbon Cutting ✂️🎀 at The Charming Lily Boutique

It was so wonderful to finally welcome The Charming Lily to Apple Valley! Owner Jen Knesel opened this boutique about a year ago but in a different location (over by Target on Cedar). However with the pandemic and other timing issues we were unable to pull off a ribbon cutting there. But in Jen's own words, this ribbon cutting was even better since she is now in a superior location that she loves in Times Square shopping center. Jen had just 2 weeks to move from her old location to her new location which was a labor of love since she has so much inventory. She worked long hours and had lots of help from family and friends. She even had her sister in town from Oklahoma helping her while also doing her regular 9-5. This new location is perfect and we know Jen will have lots of success there. Jen is so passionate about the store since she quit her corporate life at Hy-Vee after 20+ years to open her boutique - something she's always wanted to do.

In attendance was a mixture of Chamber members, representatives from the City of Apple Valley as well as Jen's friends, family and vendors who's gifts are sold at the store. Consisting of Jen’s own inventory as well as over 40 local vendors, there really is something for everyone at The Charming Lily. There is women's clothing, baby stuff, bath and cleaning supplies, candles, lake decor, cocktail accessories, kitchen gadgets, holiday decor, all kinds of gifts, jewelry, and so much more. Think local when shopping for your next gift, whether it is for someone else or you are treating yourself. Thank you to all who came to show their support and we wish Jen all the best!
