Birdhouse has closed: http://blogs.citypages.com/food/2013/06/birdhouse_closed_woodman.php Perhaps someday this row of identity crises will be redeveloped into something a bit more logical for their use (I say this without having ever visited one of the building, however.)

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

The only advantage of the 21st street station would be to make it easier to get to Hidden Beach for people who don't have cars. If you have ever tried to get there by transit you know what I mean.

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

One advantage of the 3C alignment is that it would really improve transit access from St Paul to Uptown. When I lived in St Paul without a car I would often avoid going to Uptown even though I wanted to because it would take forever to get there via the 21 or the 16 and a transfer. When I got a job ...

My Twin Cities photoblog

I post these photos at SSP and SSC but I thought I should post them here as well since a lot of posters here don't frequent those sites. I'll start in January, take it up to the present and then post more as I take them. Minneapolis, January http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8083/8381529182_dfbc6dd4c3_z...

Re: The Walkway - (1312 West Lake Street)

I really like the way this one looms above the street. Once the vacant lot across the street is filled in Hennepin and Lake is going to have legitimately urban streetscape.

Re: Heyday - 2700 Lyndale (new restaurant)

Why do people in Minneapolis hate the patina of age that comes with most old buildings? This is the only place I have been where people want to tear down any old building that isn't in pristine shape. This isn't normal. You guys would tear down half of rural England if that is the standard. Personal...

Re: Vikings Stadium

One of the things that happens in cooking sometimes is that a chef will get so into local sourcing and showing off technique that they forget to make the food taste good. Similar things happen in all creative endeavors. This looks like the architectural version. They got so into the narrative of the...

Re: Vikings Stadium

Maybe it will be better when it is built but the more I look at these renderings, the more worried I become. When Target Field's renderings were released it was obvious that it was going to be an iconic stadium, but I am not feeling this one. It is inelegant.

Re: Vikings Stadium

My first reaction is that it looks like a giant 1960s modernist suburban church. Not sure how I feel about that.
