And may the team of your choice win and make you prosperous in the football pool. Almost everyone likes a place to unwind while having a cold drink, watching the big game or listening to some good music. And if you’re looking for a place to do all three, look no further than Playoff’s Pub.

Artist Catherine Lottes tells Patch how the project evolved over the last 18 months and explains what people will see and experience now.
The Kopp’s Meditation Garden, when completed, will include 8,000 pounds worth of beautiful glass art pieces in the shape of eight large cubes that will appear to be floating off the ground. And while 8,000 pounds is quite a bit, it’s a far cry from the massive amount that would have been needed for a design approved by owner Karl Kopp back in April 2011. That plan called for 8-foot diameter culvert tubes separated by large glass disks. Local artist Catherine Lottes estimated those disks would have required 100 tons of glass—or approximately 200,000 pounds! “And that would have been quite expensive to make, transport and install,” Lottes said. Lottes’s initial instinct, she said, was to “dematerialize” the project, making it more …

The Common Council unanimously approved the plan that allows the owner to close off the southwest corner of the intersection of 76th Street and Layton Avenue with large metal panels.
For the third time in six years, the owner of Kopp's Frozen Custard has received the go-ahead to improve the southwest corner of 76th Street and West Layton Avenue. Karl Kopp intends to create a "meditation garden" by installing anodized aluminum curved panels that are 6 feet high and 12 feet long along the north and east sides of the corner at the intersection on land adjacent to the popular Kopp's restaurant. Large, illuminated glass artwork cubes would be placed between the panels as well according to the plan approved unanimously by Greenfield alderpersons at a Common Council meeting Nov. 20. Landscaping crews were working on the corner last week. Get great local stories like this on Facebook. Click to join us! In April 2011, the city’…

It's the third plan the owner of the popular burger and frozen custard restaurant will submit to the city in the last six years.
The owner of Kopp’s Frozen Custard, already considered a top outdoor dining location in Greenfield, wants to spruce up a large “garden” area on the southwest corner of the intersection of 76th Street and West Layton Avenue. Karl Kopp wants to install anodized aluminum curved panels that are 6 feet high and 12 feet long along the north and east sides of the corner at the intersection, giving it an artistic, closed-off feel from the two busy thoroughfares. Large, illuminated glass artwork cubes would be placed between the panels as well. In April 2011, the city’s Planning Commission approved a proposal for a meditation garden at the corner that would have been enclosed by long metal tubes that were open to the interior of the garden to …
