Evanston's official ribbon-cutting scissors will really get a workout this week.
Tania Merlos-Ruiz's Tomate Fresh Kitchen, which opened last month at 914-1/2 Noyes St. offering gourmet street food for lunch and dinner, gets a visit from the mayor and other officials bearing the scissors at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
Cornerstone Health, a new chiropractic clinic at 500 Davis St., gets a similar visit at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
The new net-zero, energy-efficient Walgreens drug store at Chicago Avenue and Keeney Street opens at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21.
And then at 5 p.m. Thursday, the scissors will appear at the extensively renovated Group Fox Presidential Apartments a couple blocks away at 800 Hinman Ave.
The public is welcome to attend these events, and there'll generally be snacks or free samples on offer.
