Pōst opening Friday

 
Pōst, a new wine bar and restaurant at 200 Lark St, will be opening on Friday according to their facebook.

I stopped by and took some photos during Tulip Fest as things were getting finalized and readied for opening. The crew has been hard at work and has made the space feel much nicer and inviting than I remembered. I’m really excited to have an approachable, cozy spot on Lark.

Swing by this weekend, or the next nice day afterward and hang on their patio and enjoy Lark’s newest wine bar. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook to stay in the loop.
