Thanks to Jae for sending the update that Ministry had a private event and “opens next week.” Ed. Note: Not sure if that means later this week or next week. At any rate it’s soon! Their website lists staff positions open and says:
“At The Ministry, we love all things coffee, food, and wine.
It is the heart and soul of what we do. Coffee is our energy, food is our motivator, and wine is our joy. We believe in basking in the moments that are meant to be unrushed. We seek to provide an inviting space that encourages conversations, engagement, and community. (more…)
