Local progressive political group Grassroots Northshore has found a new home.

The volunteer-run organization announced this week it has opened its first official headquarters since its inception in 2004. It has set up shop at 325 W. Silver Spring Dr., above the Irina's Kitchen restaurant near Bayshore Town Center. 

"For years we have operated out of people's homes, church basements and makeshift campaign headquarters," the group said in an email to members on Monday. "As of last week, thanks to the dedication of our steering committee, GRNS now has a home."

The group has more than 1,000 members from several North Shore communities including Shorewood, Whitefish Bay, Glendale and Fox Point. The new headquarters will serve as a geographical center of the organization's membership territory. 

"We will be better able to administer our operations and have small group informational meetings," the group said. "From here we will grow our membership."

Did somebody finally wear out their welcome at Shorewood's coffee shops?

"the group said"? Is this like quoting choir? Did the group say theses things in unison?

I'll betcha Irena's Kitchen doesn't own the offices above it's location and had nothing to do with GRNS picking the location.

The property at that address is listed as being owned by Kivley Invstments LLC. And the address is actually 325 W, not 325 E.

And it's "Irina's Kitchen".

Thanks for catching that, Bob. I made the correction.

Might want to correct the address too, Adam. 325 E Silver Spring is the Aurora Healthcare Facility just east of Santa Monica. The building containing Irina's Kitchen is at 325 W Silver Spring.
