A Simple Way to Support Central Corridor Businesses

Everyone is encouraged to support local businesses within the Central Corridor, from the Minneapolis’ West Bank, down University Avenue, into St. Paul’s Lowertown.  A program the Midway Chamber of Commerce has put together to help in this effort is “Lunch on the Avenue.”  This program encourages the public to wine or dine at a specific, locally-owned University Avenue restaurant every other week.

The program is now a permanent fixture of events happening at the Midway Chamber.  Since construction has completed on the Green Line the chamber has renamed the program- Lunch on the Line.  Central Corridor restaurants have now served hundreds of Lunch on the Line guests.  To date, guests have attended more than 80 “Lunch on the Line” events.  Attendance has grown from a few folks to an average of 30 to 40 patrons per event.
