A half-dozen local restaurants will have booths.
At least five and possibly six local restaurants will serve food at 49er Days this summer. Taste of the Fridley Area is a new feature, replacing the traditional festival-food vendors of past years.

Here are the participating businesses and what they'll be serving: Johnson said all but Jimmy John's are confirmed. Taste of the Fridley Area will be open Friday, June 24, 5-11 p.m., and Saturday, June 25, 1-11 p.m.

Shortstop, G.B. Leighton's and Two Stooges will stay open over the holiday.
Three Fridley bars will legally serve alcohol over Christmas this year. Two Stooges Sports Bar & Grill, Shortstop Fridley Bar and Grill and G.B. Leighton's Pickle Park sought and received new City of Fridley "holiday endorsements"—permission to sell alcohol for on-premise consumption between 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve and 8 a.m. on Dec. 26.

That's the usual number for a regular day, but in past years the department only …
