There’s a mini-Tria on the way. Owner Jon Myerow plans to open a smaller, more wine-centric version of his fermentation celebration concept over the summer in the Left Bank building at 32nd and Walnut. If you want to make a Tria happen somewhere else, Myerow writes in his newsletter that he’s “seeking individual investors to participate in our business. The investment isn’t liquid, but the dividends are.”
