Perhaps the most limber business plan pivot of the pandemic to date, Snack Boys – formerly a cocktail lounge and noshery on North Avenue – has moved online as "Plant Boys" and is now hawking plants, plant-related stuff, new and used books, merch (including the neon T in the photo), "wellness sh*t," drinks (wine, beer, NA), snacks (eventually) and "whatever else really."

All of the available items are carefully selected, and it's worth a visit to the website just to read the copy featuring entertaining bits like "Working on that pivot game since 2020" and  "Apocalypse can't kill our vibe."

Curbside pick up of Plant Boys' items is available from the Snack Boys East Side location, 2028 E. North Ave. Wednesday-Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m.

Snack Boys opened at the end of 2017 in Walker's Point and moved to its current spot in March of 2020. It's owned by industry veterans John Revord, who also owns Boone & Crockett, and Chef Mitch Ciohon also of Taco Moto.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
