The Tuf-Nut Shops, on the corner of River Market Avenue and Third Street, is getting two new tenants on November 1. Brown Sugar Bakeshop, a dessert bakery located in the River Market’s Ottenheimer Hall for the last year, plans to move and expand its menu and hours. Run by sisters Kristi and April Williams, who operated a cake-decorating business, April’s Cakes, for eight years prior to opening Brown Sugar, the bakery will offer Jamaican and Cuban coffee, gourmet cupcakes and pies in its new location. Its hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Nearby, Troy Deal and Michael Puckett will open Zin Urban Wine & Beer Bar. I'll let you know further details about it when I know them.
