When the Turf Club triumphantly reopens later this year, the place will need a much larger staff to handle St. Paul's favorite hole-in-the-wall music venue's new kitchen. Hiring is now underway.

Closed since June 1 for extensive renovations to its ventilation, roofing, bars, fire suppression system, and the new kitchen, the Turf now has a timetable for return, according to new owner First Avenue. "We'll be open for concerts starting on August 28," says First Avenue general manager Nate Kranz. "Depending on construction schedules and staff training we may be open for food and drinks a few days prior to that."
