Loring restaurant, artists team up to help good neighbor


Joe's Garage in Loring Park is pitching in to help a popular neighborhood resident pay his hospital bills. The restaurant is hosting a "Wally Wall" featuring work by local artists to help 78-year-old Wally Hanson.

Artworks, which are for sale until Dec. 15, can be seen at the 1610 Harmon Place restaurant.

Kirstin Hanson, one of the featured artists and Hanson's neighbor at the Oak Grove Apartment Hotel, 230 Oak Grove St., organized the effort.

"When anybody meets Wally, they like him. He's a staple in the neighborhood," she said.
