Re: Bike Shopping

Thanks for the suggestions and ideas everyone. How much are you willing to spend? What kind of bars do you want? I was going to suggest that you try a Civia. The North Loop is great if you can find it! I would like to stay under $400.00, ideally, if I go new, under $300.00 if I can find something wo...

Re: Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons at 36th Ave S and East Lake St. is coming along. They are almost done with the exterior, windows and doors are in and the interior is also close. I had read they were shooting for an opening in Feb., but that will obviously not happen, maybe sometime in March. I know that they have alrea...

Wanted to revive this post as I would like to purchase a bike and want to get something that will be easier on my aging back than my mountain bike, would like to sit more up-right. I'd like to keep it as economical as possible too, so looking at used bikes pretty much, but not exclusively. Wondering...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Part of the write up on the UPDC page seems to contradict itself a bit. First they have this sentence: "They are planning for earthwork on the bus barn site and the demolition of the Rainbow Foods portion of the Midway Center to happen beginning May 16." But further down they have this: "...the proj...

Re: 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use (Oppidan/Greco Project)

Still no official word of who will fill the grocery store space. The anti-development crowd was there in force and a bit more hostile this time, IMO. There were some in favor, but they generally kept quiet as the complainers took over the meeting.

But people aren't born with Sr. as part of their legal name, right? So, when and how does one add Sr. to their name? Is this a legal process that you go thru or is it informal?

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

They're holding out for an actual guarantee that a competitor won't be able to open in this development, in order to protect Cub. It doesn't seem like this would be too hard a guarantee to make. Is a supermarket really part of the plans here, to the point where it would be a deal breaker for a deve...

Re: Presidential Election 2016

From Trump's executive order pertaining to immigration and sanctuary cities:

(c) Ensure that jurisdictions that fail to comply with applicable Federal law do not receive Federal funds, except as mandated by law;

What kind of funds would these be, that aren't mandated by law?

Re: Solving car congestion by not caring about cars?

"There are skeptics, particularly those who question how many Floridians will get out of their air-conditioned cars during much of the year’s hot, humid weather."

It's either too hot or too cold to not drive your car.

Re: 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use (Oppidan/Greco Project)

Can anyone with experience watching these kinds of projects give any inclination of how sure this is to becoming a reality? And what sorts of means of communication are used to announce progress? I was at the community meeting at the Longfellow Rec Center, but I didn't really get a sense of how far ...

Re: Longfellow "Town Square" / Oppidan Project

I think about 2 or 3 people asked which grocery store and each time it was answered with a, don't know. But one of the developers did mention that they have worked with about 11 different grocers in local projects, basically trying to say that they didn't just work with one specific one. He highligh...

I believe the entire 1st floor. The main entrance to the grocery store will be facing the surface parking lot.

The anti-project crowd was worried about their neighborhood losing its character, but the developers and CM Andrew Johnson did a good job of explaining how this project will enhance the area. Probably to no effect. Haha, yep. At the end of the meeting I overheard a woman who must have a home near t...

Construction has begun at the old White Castle at 36th Ave and East Lake St. It was completely abandoned this morning and by 5p they had the whole building fenced off with a couple of dumpsters and storage boxes or something and had already gone to town inside the building too. Looks like they are g...
