ST. CLOUD -  St. Cloud gay community, straight allies and anyone looking for healthy vegetarian dining, take a note - Biology 701, St. Cloud's first GLBT - oriented restaurant and nightclub will be open for business in about a month.

The restaurant by day, lounge-style dance club by night is in the final stages of remodeling on the corner of 7th Avenue and West St. Germain.

Owner Chuck Severson, who ran a successful GLBT nightclub in St. Paul, says opening Biology 701 is an idea that has gotten a great deal of support from the community.

Severson says they'll be open 7 days a week beginning at lunchtime. The menu will be feature vegan and vegetarian options in addition to classic American fare - something Severson admits might be lacking in the St. Cloud dining scene.

Biology 701 will be up before the St. Cloud city council on October 10th for licensing.

They plan to open between October 15th and Halloween.
