One problem with the Chase Park warehouses, on Tracy Street in the Boulevard neighborhood, has been that there’s not much to eat or drink there, unless you get lucky and happen upon a Canopy bake sale or a pop-up art opening. Since Hip Pops closed in October, there’s been even less.
But now, Veronica’s Sweet Spot, a project of local musician Veronica Darby, is finally open for business there, with coffee, tea and snacks for sale.
Darby ran a Kickstarter to help get her business going. It’s open 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Sunday. There’s not a working website at the moment, but the Facebook page is a good place to check for updates.
Over in the Leathers Building, on Pulaski, Shiraz is also back open, in time for the holiday shopping season.
