By donation…in house 805, I was served a hot dog. Check out the menu! I loved the atmosphere here…loved the menu. Thanks to artist, Jeremy Pavka. Somewhere around 2000 people attended opening night and I really treasured the positive and engaging conversations that I shared along the way.
Magic is created in house 805 by artists, Andrew Rodrigues, Janet Mader & Cimmeron Meyer, Jeremy Pavka, Kelsey Fraser, Mackenzie Boyle, Nate McLeod and Randy Niessen.
