The copper jacketed brewing urns and equipment will be installed in the former west side ambulance bay separated from the old fire truck bays by an interior porcelain wall.

To provide windows for patrons to view the brewery in operation as well as widening a kitchen doorway requires partial removal of the west and north porcelain brick walls, specified features under the heritage building designation.

In addition to operating a micro-brewery/pub, there is restaurant that accommodates seating for 270 diners on the main floor and upper level, an outdoor patio facing Second Street is open during the summer months and a roof top greenhouse produces vegetables for the restaurant. The Park Street building houses the Lake of the Woods Brewing Companys own Beer Store for off-sale consumption limited to products brewed, bottled and packaged on site.

New Book ‘Dolphin Nose’ Reveals Collection of Short Stories Inspired by Travel

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (PRWEB) September 18, 2014

A cornucopia of enthralling tales that immortalize the memories of experience lived in varied parts of the world awaits readers within the pages of author Subba Rao' s newest book. "Dolphin Nose" (published by Xlibris), Rao's third title, exposes his light-hearted observations of life from the events and incidents of both present and past; producing an exquisite collection of lessons that aims to inspire and entertain.

Through the narration of Juggernaut, Rao shares whimsical and jovial tales based on his thoughts and observations of life. His perspective is rich, astute and full of reflective insights that grace the readers with quotable life lessons. As per the world events, the best he could do was to come out with his own list of wishful thinking. He ponders on many pointless pursuits in life, all presented with light humor.

The dominant influence of diverse cultures spices up Rao's portrayal of every unique character. He takes readers through the beguiling terrains of India, the azure Caribbean and the land of freedom that is the United States. "Without looking at the events from the past and learning from it," Rao believes, "one cannot move forward." Through his eccentric approach in writing, he hopes to create a comforting reprieve from the ills of existence and inspire readers to look at life in a new light.

“My Insane Shakespeare” to Premiere in New York City

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 12, 2014

"My Insane Shakespeare" will premiere at United Solo, the world's largest solo theatre festival on October 13, 2014, which is currently sold-out with an additional bestseller performance on October 19, 2014. The play is written, directed, and performed by Arthur Elbakyan.

What is better, to be in a mental hospital among normal people or to be free among the insane? This is one of the questions I ask in my performance, states Elbakyan.

Elbakyan plays the main character, an actor, who involuntarily finds himself in a mental hospital at which point, the key developments of the play unfold. Betrayed by his close friends and allies, the actor analyzes life, love, hatred, vanity, human rights, freedom of speech, and the rulers of the world. In the midst of solidarity and seclusion, his feelings and emotions begin to flow upon paper and canvas.

I tell this true story with my paintings, which make up part of the stage design. I have painted the inner battles and breakthroughs of the main character, says Elbakyan, 'My Insane Shakespeare' is a reflection on how an individual doesnt break down in an insane asylum but instead, against all odds, finds inner strength and willpower to live, love and create.

By drawing parallels between our modern day lives and the days of Shakespeare, Elbakyan proves that over time, human relationships and values have not changed at all. Moreover, he shows that Shakespeares to be, or not to be has become even more of a burning question today.

Arthur Elbakyan is an international actor and theatre, film, and television director and producer. Having lived in Armenia, Russia, Europe and the United States, Elbakyan has played over 30 leading theatre roles and has been the author and host of numerous television shows. Elbakyan was the founder of the Theatre Studio 13 and also co-founded the first independent television channel in Armenia AR. His passion for theatre was strong enough to bring theatre to television with his introduction of a series of television shows Its Majesty Theatre on the National Television of Armenia, taking the audience to the unique world of the theatre and performing arts. Recently, Elbakyan has received Best Documentary Short Award at the Los Angeles Film and Script Festival.

2014 United Solo Theatre Festival celebrates its 5th anniversary season and its dynamic expansion in scope and popularity. Over 130 shows from six continents are staged at Theatre Row: 410 West 42nd Street, New York City. TICKETS, with a price of $ 19.25 (including a $ 1.25 theatre restoration charge) are available at Theatre Row box office, 410 West 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036, as well as over the phone at 212.239.6200 and online at More details can be found at

Top Backpacking Tent Awards Released By

Cheyenne, Wyoming (PRWEB) September 09, 2014 a website know for its comprehensive side-by-side comparison reviews, has recently set live their updated best backpacking tent review that includes not only a detailed analysis of twenty three two person tents but also includes an informative buying advice article as well. After testing top of the line products for several seasons while on camping and hiking outings everywhere from Alaska to Maine on route through the High Sierras and more, feedback from fifty reviewers has been compiled to determine the Editors' Choice, Top Pick and Best Buy award winners.

The winners are:

Hilleberg Anjan 2

Once again the Anjan 2 has won the OutdoorGearLab Editors' Choice award. Gear review Editor, Jessica Haist explains why, "The Anjan 2 is a favorite among our reviewers. It is constructed with very sturdy materials and its tunnel design stands the test of time. It is versatile, durable, weather resistant and adaptable to everything from car camping to backpacking and our reviewers even found it more than suitable for kayaking, bicycle touring and more. For its weight class (3.6 lbs.), the Anjan is unmatched. Haist also points out that though the Anjan is not ultralight, it was more comfortable, durable and stronger than all of the products tested.

REI Half Dome 2 Plus

The Half Dome 2 won Best Buy award for having the most room for its weight, for being pretty strong and a great value overall. According to Haist, The Half Dome 2 is a great buy for the price. It is a very good tent with more than ample storage area and ventilation, and it is quite comfortable.

Mountainsmith Morrison 2

The Mountainsmith Morrison 2 is also a Best Buy award winner. The Morrison 2 won this award as well due to its ease of set up, roomy interior and excess of features. Gear Editor, Haist states, The Morrison 2 is not only attractive, but has a lot of extra features that make it very comfortable. This product is easy to set up and its price range makes it an excellent value. Haist does mention that the extra features such as mesh panels and double zip entryways do add to its weight. The Morrison 2 is highly recommended in the review for shorter backpacking or paddling excursions and car camping.

This review also has two Top Pick award winners. The Top Pick award is granted to the products that excel at certain applications.

Terra Nova Solar Photon 2

The Terra Nova Solar Photon 2 is winner of the Top Pick award because it is the smallest when packed and has the largest vestibule in its category. It is almost the lightest contender tested, has excellent ventilation and is constructed with super strong fly and floor materials. Gear Editor, Chris McNamara reports, The Solar Photon was our favorite for ultralight adventures because it so light and compact. Our testers also found that is was more protective and comfortable than most of the contenders in its class. McNamara does state that Terra Nova products are not available from most online retailers and can be hard to find.

MSR Hubba Hubba NX

The MSR Hubba Hubba NX received its Top Pick award for being the most lightweight and versatile two door model tested. Haist reports, The Hubba Hubba is light, well ventilated and has two options for light and fast pitching. MSR has redesigned this model so well that they have managed to lighten up the Hubba Hubba by nearly a pound. Haist recommends this product as being great for backpacking but mentions that it is not likely to be as durable at the Editors Choice award winner the Anjan, but she reminds readers that it is also lighter and less expensive.
