Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I've waded into a few Nextdoor conversations but less to argue my points and more to direct people to what's actually in the plan (as opposed to whatever apocalyptic scenario they've adopted). It has rarely seemed to make a difference to the posters, but I'm hopeful that another reader will actually...

Re: STREETS MN Meet-Up?

I can't seem to manage to be in town when streets has an official meetup. I'd definitely be interested in a happy hour in early August.

Re: Introductions

Hi gang. I've been on here for a little while (mostly lurking with the occasional post) but haven't made it into this section much. My name is Matt and I've been living in Minneapolis since 1997 in a variety of neighborhoods (Lynlake, Lowry Hill East, Stevens, Central, Powderhorn, and now East Isles...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

I was able to stop by Tenka Ramen on Lake Street (formerly Marina) for lunch the other day. The space is nice and my soup was tasty. I was the only one in the restaurant, but I don't think anyone gets a big weekday lunch crowd in that area. I'd definitely say it's worth checking out if you're in the...

I am a not-infrequent visitor to the bar side of Heyday, but it looks like some version of that will be preserved.

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

Chiming in a little late, but my wife and I took the trip up to Big Lake and then to SPUD. We met a nice gentleman while getting tickets and spent the trip chatting with him about trains, travel, Minneapolis (he is a 40 year Prospect Park resident), and everything in-between. It was a great time and...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

The F+F menu doesn't do much for me, but in the Mpls/St. Paul Magazine article they mentioned having a reasonably priced wine list (glasses starting at $5) which I am fully on board with.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Looks like Lucia's will be closing this month. First my preferred pre-movie beverage stop and now my preferred post-movie dinner stop.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Coup d'Etat was my preferred pre-movie beverage stop (particularly when their happy hour went until 7). I had some really nice chats with some of their happy hour regulars. Hopefully that bunch finds a new home nearby. Lake & Irving, maybe?
