Robin’s Nest Cakery
Wed, Thurs, Fri 1-6
Sat Noon-6 For the past several years, Robin’s Nest Cakery has been providing
Sun 11-3 spectacular custom cakes and sweet treats for any occasion. They are
looking forward to moving to their new prime location at 5537 Sixth
Avenue (under the Mayer Drugs sign) by the end of February. Give
them a call at 262-652-1054 for more information.

Duck Duck Goose

We all know that kids grow like weeds and before you know it, they
will be growing out of their clothes. So, why pay top dollar for items for
the kids when you can stop at Duck Duck Goose? This children’s
resale shop will be moving just across the street, to 5811 Sixth
Avenue, by February 1st.

K-9 Kibble

If you are driving down Sixth Avenue and worried because K9 Kibble
is no longer at their location, fret not. They have simply moved to a new
larger store just a few blocks away at 5919 Sheridan Road. What has-
n’t changed is their excellent customer service and all of the best prod-
ucts available for your loving pet.

Meet Nate Whitney

One of the biggest stories of Downtown Kenosha in 2019 has to be the dramatic transformation of the Stella

Hotel, formerly the Elks Club and Heritage House on the 5700 block of Eighth Avenue. In 2017, local photogra-

pher Nate Whitney, fascinated by local history and abandoned buildings, decided to take the legal path and con-

tacted the owners of the property to get inside for some photographs. Nate recalled his first visit to what was

then known as the vacant Heritage House, “The building was in decent shape with some exceptions. The floors

were soft and had some give, some water leakage, missing windows, and vandalism.”

Now, with the new hotel and restaurant near completion and Whitney as their exclusive photographer, Nate was

able to return to the scene of his photographic work to provide us with an update. “Compared to what I saw in

2017, the renovations are remarkable.” he told Downtown Kenosha magazine. “I don't think anyone will believe the

condition the building was in when I first saw it. I am glad they were able to save and use as much of the original

building as possible. I think Stella will be a great addition to Downtown and will help play a major role in the devel-

opment of the downtown area.”

Whitney is an artist and resident of Kenosha specializing in photography. He discovered his passion after traveling cross country to

Seattle in 2005. Despite the low-resolution images that his 1.8 MP flip phone camera took, he became obsessed how the lights and shad-

ows played off the landscapes to create a certain mood and atmosphere. Two years later, he received his first point-and-shoot camera and

two years after that he purchased his first DSLR which he still uses today. His main concentration is in landscape, nature, automobile and

recently event photography. His images have been published online and in print including the 2017 Kenosha County Visitors guide and

can be viewed and purchased online by visiting
