There are a couple of new businesses in the Pinch District. With Cafe Francisco's departure a while back I have to admit I have not been to the area recently - or just haven't been paying attention. So things in the Pinch are getting interesting again. There is a neat new gift shop and gallery called Red Fish Gallery on Main Street just north of Jackson. The owner and her dog Jack (cutie) were very helpful. They just opened last Friday and the shop is full of interesting glass, art, jewelry, clothes and other items.
Right around the corner is a new salon at 113 Jackson (between Second and Main) called Le Tre Salon. The nice owner there gave me a tour of the newly renovated space and it looks fantastic; open, airy and very nice. It's great to see some new life in the Pinch.
