Strandz & Threadz is celebrating 25 years on Vincennes Street in Uptown NA.


A bit of trivia: When Strandz & Threadz was known as Beauty World, it was located in the south wing of the NABC Pizzeria & Public House (where the game room is now).

McAfee proves yet again that the local chain newspaper’s writers are perfectly capable when given the column inches to explicate a topic. Too bad about the abysmal news room management, but maybe some day it will change.

Strandz celebrates on Friday: “The owners are celebrating the business’ anniversary from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Friday with an open house that will feature door prizes, drinks, appetizers and a trivia contest with a prize of a $250 gift card.”

I’m not sure I can make it, but congratulations and best wishes from the 1117 East Spring Street Neighborhood Association.

The siblings purchased their parent’s business in 1993 …
