Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

Lake Street Parklet is a hit

FYI, if you are over this way, check out the Mexico City Cafe. Delicious!

Re: Electric Scooters

Spin scooters debuted in St. Louis Park today and the old folks are already flustered on Nextdoor that "kids ride these things!"

Damn kids having fun! How dare they during the summer!! Maybe don't drive your oversized SUV 40 mph in a residential neighborhood and we can all coexist...

Jason DeRusha talked with Zimmern, and he said they are truly doing a remodel and reopening.

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

I heard about Lucky Cricket closing on the 4th for remodeling. Anyone else find it strange to close for remodeling 8 months after opening? The Facebook page says it will only be closed for a couple of weeks, but it's following a post the same day that said it would be open 8am on the 5th. Doesn't s...

Re: Bergan's Redevelopment - Cedar & Minnehaha Parkway

Minnehaha Scoop will be adding Dave's Popcorn here shortly. Minnehaha Ave/34th St E. Does this mean Dave himself and the current popcorn shop at 47th and Cedar will be closing? Or a second outlet? Daves was at 38th/Cedar and closed late last year. He sold the recipes and equipment to Minnehaha Scoo...

Re: Bergan's Redevelopment - Cedar & Minnehaha Parkway

This is a decent proposal. Now if someone would just come along a build a remake of the old Dave's Popcorn that used to be on the opposite side of Cedar, the corner will be nearly perfect! The popcorn was perfect and even the long summer lines waiting to pick some up were fun. Minnehaha Scoop will ...

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

Fair points, and I agree people talk about surface parking as convenient. But it seems like people never talk about the advantages of covered parking? No scraping snow off your car, no excessive solar heating on a hot summer day, no tree blossoms or seeds (or minimal, if in an open-air ramp), no bi...

Did many of the stores bake their own donuts, or were they shipped in from a central facility?
Pretty sure they are shipped frozen and reheated

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

I asked folks how their transportation went on Saturday and received almost all positive responses. - Seems like the A Line was a clear winner, with Metro Transit running some of the artics from the C Line. I hope they will be able to make that move throughout the year, even once the C Line begins ...

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

People who are worried about parking here are missing where the true clusterf*** is going to be. They're projecting 6,300 people arriving by Green Line. That's got to be comparable (or perhaps higher) than what Vikings and Twins games see, and they're serviced by both Blue and Green Lines, and have...

The Wild, Twins, Wolves, and Vikings all have stadium operated team stores operated year round, open all week except Sundays for most of them.

Yeah, a 207-unit rental development.
Planning Commission hearing on December 19, 6:00pm.
In case anyone is worried about unlimited breadsticks, Olive Garden will be moving into the old Avenida Cocina space near Hopkins Crossroad/394 a few miles west.

Glad the facade is no longer a five alarm tire fire, and I'm always for a nice outdoor sign. But... why is this called the Archive? Why does it have 1.6 parking spaces per unit? Still some issues with this one.
Could be replacing the lost public parking for the nearby event centers

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Re: Stillwater Development News

No he isn't wrong, but it is not like the new bridge popped out of nowhere within the blink of an eye. This guy should have known for the last 10 to 15 years this was going to happen. To sit back and complain when he knew damn well what was going to happen to traffic around his place is pathetic.

Re: Suburbs - General Topics

There used to be three gas stations and a laundromat/landscaping company (which I think is still there) at this intersection. The gas stations closed at least 10 years ago, and all have remained empty. Funny someone mention a three-story building as too tall when immediately north of the NW corner i...
