The Purple Goat plans to open their doors in Rochester, Minnesota by Thursday, August 19th.

I've been anxiously awaiting the opening of The Purple Goat, mostly because I drive by this place multiple times every single day.  So, when I heard that they were opening by Thursday, August 19th in the story that the Post Bulletin just had, I started screaming at my desk when I was sitting at work.  Finally another spot to eat will be opening up in NE Rochester!  Sounds like if it is possible, they will open before the 19th too.  If I hear that the doors open early, I'll stick the news up on my Facebook Page - Jessica On The Radio - so go give that a follow so you don't miss it.

I already started pursuing their Facebook page to see what food they will be tempting me with and already know what I'm ordering first, but also saw they created their own hot sauce.

Attention all hot sauce lovers!!!
Chef Mark has come up with his own hot sauce that will only be offered here at Purple Goat!!!  - The Purple Goat Facebook Page
