Signs of Summer
Whether you’re one of the lucky restaurants with sidewalk patio seating or just have a sidewalk, double-sided signs provide a creative way to alert passersby to your daily special or just to have some fun. All that’s required is a chalkboard sign, chalk, a clever writer with good handwriting and good artist—and who doesn’t have one or two of them on staff?
Here are three different examples we ran across lately, two in St. Paul, where the city is looking at changing some of the rules, and one in Minneapolis.
We were attracted to the punny sentiment on the ones in front of Grand Catch and French Meadow, and the artwork on the one in front of Grand Café.
