It’s official – St. Louis Park Magazine has launched and we are so excited to bring this magazine to the community. Last night, we celebrated with a party at Rojo Mexican Grill in the Shops at West End and it was great to meet so many folks, many of whom are part of stories in our first issue as well as upcoming issues.  It was also nice to hear that people are already reading and enjoying the magazine.
