We are affected as everyone by Covid 19, first and foremost we hope you are healthy and safe and while suspending operations is painful we want to be part of the solution to help flatten the curve. In the meantime, please help support our industry and your local restaurants with gift certificates purchases and continue planning your events in the future. Thank you and be safe.

The Fhimas Minneapolis Team


The North Stands was launched as bars and restaurants began to shut down in Minnesota due to COVID-19, and there was a growing need for hospitality worker support. Lydia Andresen created the idea of The North Stands and partnered with Northbound Creative, Chef David and Lori Fhima, Elijah Fhima, Chef Justin Sutherland and The Sanneh Foundation to launch the campaign raising funds to provide a stipend in support of those hospitality workers who have lost income to shutdowns during this unprecedented time.
