Re: Southside - General Topics

Yep, that's been digging for a few months now. That'll be a nice improvement to that corner. The new(ish) paint job on Mercado Central looks really sharp too. Most importantly, best tacos in the city on the NE corner of Lake & Bloomington - Taqueria Las Cuatro Milpas . I've been going since last su...

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 35 stories / 393'

Based on the last few letters included in the packet, it looks like the Twins and the Minnesota Ballpark authority have been the holdup, with various concerns ranging from not wanting to share the Dock Street access point to being worried about a gunman shooting into the ballpark from a high floor ...

Is the "Twin Cities African-American golf community" actually a thing?

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 35 stories / 393'

Some things I thought of was bowling alley, movie theater, and fitness center. Had never thought of mini storage. That would actually be a great reuse for some of the parking in buildings that don't need as many spaces as they currently have. It would be great if that mini storage using street leve...

Re: Crime

I just had my closest brush with death, ever. I was crossing Hennepin/Lyndale Ave at Groveland Terrace. The Hennepin Ave light turned red and then the pedestrian crosswalk illuminated and I began crossing the street. To my left a southbound vehicle going apprx 40mph starts honking its horn at me and...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I'm glad it's gone. the heavy stream of out-of-towners that frequent the restaurants in that area deserve something that demonstrates the strength of our food scene. I hope Newsroom is next. I haven't dined there in a long time, and it was always for business functions where I wasn't the one paying...

Re: Cambria / Fairfield Hotels - 41 10th Street N (former Ramada block)

Not so much crime as proximity to services for people experiencing homelessness and a pawn shop. Calls t...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

This guy managed to close two different restaurants located on the prime stretch of the North Loop in under two years. The second of the two was, of course, a hail mary Rojo just like the Nicollet version. I would take it as a badge of honor for the food scene in Minneapolis that we keep rejecting ...
