Getting a bite under the bridge

Local

There’s coffee. There’s lunch. Then, there’s brunch. 

But, no one does it like the people do it in the Red River District. 

“Boom…. and then for a while there wasn’t really anything down here,” said Melvie Smith, a vendor for Elijah Asher Naturals. “Seemed like everything left…It’s a wonderful thing because I’m from here and I would hate to see downtown just decipate into nothing. I think we really need this for the area.” 

An area that just recently filled all of its buildings with businesses, making the district a bubbling place for the Brunch under the Bridge. 

“We need something that brings the city together,” said Karen LeBeau. “The city has been divided with issues, like you said, on the issues of the monuments, and diferent other issues and crime and everything else. We need a happy place. This can be a happy place.”
