Zorbaz brings a little flair and a 'buy local' message to shores of Green Lake, Minn.


There's fresh paint inside and out, and a new bar has been built. But a quick look around will tell you that the new Zorbaz on Green Lake still has some things in common with its former incarnation as Melvin's on the Lake.

"We reused what we could," said manager Scott Sc-hulte as he looked around the dining room of the Spicer restaurant. "If it's not broke, why fix it?" Zorbaz opened at the Spicer location a week ago.
