Freeway Mural Photos

Barracks Row Main Street is thrilled to announce that the first panels of our long-awaited freeway mural have now been installed! Check out the photos below for images of the four center sections to the underpass component of the design. Later this month, this middle section will be flanked on both sides by two much larger panels, and later this spring, the portion that will run along the northern face of the freeway all the way from 8th Street down to 7th Street and on each supporting column will be completed. We're so excited to finally be able to beautify this space!

Last Sunday Barracks Row chefs taught courses from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to students eager to learn their secrets. Take a look at the photos from the classes: from Oyster Shucking at Senart's to Cupcake Baking at Hello Cupcake to Pizza 101 at Matchbox - a total of 9 different classes were held, some multiple times. Click here for photos. Special thanks to Penny Karas, owner of Hello Cupcake, who came up with this great idea!


Because of your enthusiastic feedback we will definitely organize another Culinary Education Crawl in the months ahead!
