M-K-T, THE COOL, repurposed mixed-use development along the Heights Hike and Bike Trail, is gearing up for a busy fall.


Events include the Sunset Market, Yoga on the Lawn and the new Trail Mix event, which debuted last weekend. This one, which takes place on the first Saturday of each month, is an outdoor music and variety show just for children. The kiddos will also enjoy the Hike Bike & Fright Fest on Oct. 30 with a trick-or-treat trail, photo booth, outdoor screening of Hocus Pocus and more.

Hot new restaurants are opening one-by-one, guaranteeing a steady flow of foodies throughout the complex. The most recent arrival, coastal-Mexican restaurant and lounge Casa Nomad, will whisk guests away to Tulum for a night. Also open: A handful of health-conscious options, including Rakkan Ramen, Tight Squeeze Juice Bar and Sweetgreen.

Soon, folks can raise a glass at upscale cocktail bar Highline Park, and round out the night with frozen custard at Honeychild's Sweet Creams, both opening soon. Mendocino Farms will open a new outpost, the area's fourth. And offering sustainably sourced sushi and seafood, Blue Sushi Sake Grill also bows this fall.

Meanwhile, there's plenty of shopping to be done ahead of the holiday season: Streetwear boutique Nollege, men's shoe store Taft, local athletic brand DYI, Chloe Dao and Ray-Ban have all opened their doors in recent weeks.

And let's hear it for the girls! Common Assembly stocks clothing and lifestyle items from brands with female founders. Tre' Sorelle is a light-filled women's clothing boutique owned by a local teacher, and June & Co. is another affordable boutique that hosts fun events like pumpkin painting on Oct. 14. Go Easy is a shop lined with giftable self-care goodies for women.
