A Schnitzelburg tradition continued this week, as crowds gathered for the 43rd Annual Dainty contest. This yearly event actually takes place right across the street from YesterNook, which is kind of appropriate. We are a store that is all about traditions.
If you look around the neighborhood, you'll see that Schnitzelburg is big on tradition. The Dainty Contest itself hearkens back to the German roots of the people who founded the neighborhood. It's run by Hauck's, one of the oldest businesses in the area.
There's a fine food tradition in the area, too. From long-established restaurants like Check's to the newer places that are just a few doors from YesterNook, there's always been plenty of good eating around these parts.
For many, many years the Russman Funeral Home was a part of the local tradition as well. We've been pleased to bring the building back to life and vitality in the neighborhood. We love it when longtime area residents drop by the store and share their memories with us. There are many stories hidden in our streets, just waiting to be told.
YesterNook joined a fine retail tradition in the area when we opened a year and a half ago. We are pleased that we have become a regular stop for so many of you. We want to continue to be a part of keeping this part of town vibrant and exciting. It's a tradition we're glad to be a part of.
