Minnetonka Patch Editor Katelynn Metz gets a lesson in making frothy lattes at Caribou Coffee.
Editor's Note: Today, Patch is debuting the first of four new video series. The first, ‘Fish Out of Water’ features Minnetonka Patch Local Editor Katelynn Metz trying her hand at a new job somewhere in the west metro. New editions of Fish Out of Water will appear every Monday. In this first segment, Metz tries being a barista at Minnetonka’s beloved neighborhood Caribou located on Highway 101, south of Minnetonka Boulevard. Not to brag, but I seem to take to most new jobs pretty well. And in my three-plus decades I’ve done many jobs besides being a journalist, including waitressing, ice-cream scooping, babysitting, teaching nutrition and even answering phones at a nunnery (you’d be surprised how many calls the ladies do get!) So although …

Plans to replace the strip mall with apartments on hold until the funding verdict is delivered.
After years of losing money and tenants, the owners of Woodlake Plaza are making plans with the city to make better use of the land the center sits on. If all goes as planned, contractors could break ground as early as Spring 2011 to remove the existing retail center and begin building a new 90-unit apartment complex.
