Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

That would make sense. Here's a year-end rundown from the PiPress, including the news that Faces Mears Park will be renamed Bistro 373 when it reopens in the spring. (The number comes from the address of 373 Sibley St, of course.) http://www.twincities.com/2016/12/29/st-paul-got-some-great-new-resta...

Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

The remodeling project for Baja Sol in the U.S. Bank building seems to be moving along pretty quickly -- I'm not sure when they'll open, but it's possible they'll be ready by the beginning of January. There's also a Freshii location opening in the Town Square building (across from Potbelly and next ...

Re: I'm on a Boat!

Viking River Cruises has pushed back their launch date to 2018, and their statements seem to be getting more vague. No ships have been built yet for the Mississippi River service.

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor)

Looks like there are two trains there, on opposite tracks. It was probably a trick of the eyes due to the lamppost in the way.

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

Is there any more information on what time of day they were attempting to model? Speaking as a regular route 54 rider, there's quite a lot of variation through the day, though it probably doesn't vary as wildly as some other bus routes elsewhere in the Twin Cities. One thing to take into considerati...

Re: Car Sharing / Rental (Car2Go, HourCar, etc.)

I'm pretty sure I'd commented on the fact that there was an oversupply of ForTwos in the U.S., though maybe someone else beat me to it. Does anyone know what a typical rental car's lifespan is like? I suspect it's pretty common for agencies to only keep them for about 3 years, then pawn them off ont...

The Java Express coffee shop has moved into the suite on the northwest corner of the headhouse (suite 120, i think). That's the same room that had been used several times for open houses by Ramsey County Regional Rail Authority. The coffee shop had temporarily been in the kitchen space formerly used...

Baja Sol is moving into the old Four Inns location on the skyway level of the U.S. Bank building in downtown. They had crews actively working in there today and some signs up in the window to say what it will be.

I'd like to see them work on the Saturday and Sunday bus schedule so it's possible to go from Minneapolis to St. Cloud and back on those days. They have it set up so people can come into the city, but not the other way around. In the meantime, I should really try taking Jefferson Lines to St. Cloud ...

The interior is another tick up t...

Re: Presidential Election 2016

I'd prefer not to speculate on who's in the running for 2020 already. That's part of the whole problem we had with this election cycle, as people like Hillary and Jeb! were floated as possible candidates way too early and sucked up a lot of the air that could have gone to others. There are more imme...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor)

I've always figured that markings would be helpful even if they weren't exactly aligned. You really want people to be standing a bit off to the side of the doors or a few feet back so that people can get off the train first and then have new riders get on. I think it would be better to use some pain...
