At noon on Sunday, officials shut down Nicollet Avenue between East Lake Street and 46th Street for Open Streets Minneapolis, an opportunity for residents to walk, bike, run, walk, amble and experience the neighborhood in a new way. Businesses took their wares outside. There were bike ramps, vintage fashion shows, hula hoops, Mormons with balloons, archery lessons and plenty of tempting street food.

At Corner Table Nick and Chenny Rancone along with chef Thomas Boemer offered guests a taste of the forthcoming Revival, with what might just be the best fried chicken in the Twin Cities. At Hola Arepa, the restaurant's craft cocktail makers took the party outside in a vintage truck, while eaters could belly up to the turquoise colored food truck that started it all for the first time since the restaurant opened.

Eater photographer Katie Cannon captured the festivities.
