 **A Seat with a Story: Honoring a Unique Legacy at Cornerstone Pub and Prime** 

In 2011, my dad (Steven Grindeland) had an idea like no other. To help sell his house, he decided to put a giant chair at the end of his driveway as a "marketing" technique. Some might call it obnoxious, but he always had a knack for unique ideas. Without hesitation, he asked my Uncle John to build it. And just like that, an idea became a reality.

Tragically, the following year, my dad passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack. I found myself wondering, "What the heck am I supposed to do with a giant chair?" We ended up rehoming the chair to Pinehaven Farm, right across the freeway, where it stood for several years.

Recently, I noticed the chair sitting alone in a field and decided to make a call. I asked if they still used it for the farm, and if not, I expressed my interest in adding it to our amazing patio setup here at Cornerstone Pub and Prime. Without hesitation, Brent and his dad hauled it over this morning.

Now, this chair, filled with memories and a unique story, has found a new home on our patio. It's here for you to enjoy, take pictures, and create new memories. Help us honor my dad's legacy with some fun family photos on our patio!

Come on down to Cornerstone Pub and Prime in Wyoming, MN, and take a seat in our special chair! We can't wait to see the memories you'll create.

What a great story, and knowing why the giant chair means so much to the restaurant it makes sense that they would want it back.

If you can stop and see the chair, look for random rubber ducks throughout the restaurant, we have a friend who likes to hide them.
