Andy Sturdevant's The Stroll

Anybody else jonesing for more Andy Sturdevant and his The Stroll articles? He wrote his last one a month or so ago. Does anybody know what he is up to now? I think he said he was still going to contribute to MinnPost from time to time, but haven't seen anything from him lately. Are there any compar...

Re: Star Tribune

Yep, think I'm going to do the $1.09/wk Sunday plus digital too.

The paywall doesn't seem to work at all on my work computer, I can read well over 10 articles in a month there, during my lunch break of course ;) and no paywall. On my phone it seems like it pops up before I have reached my limit.

Re: Star Tribune

Anybody else get an offer to subscribe to the Strib in the mail recently? I think they were offering $0.99/week for the Sunday paper and $1.09/week for the Sunday paper plus 7 day digital access. 26 week subscription. They had a third option, but don't remember what it was. Is this about a low as it...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I would think some sort of commercial partnership at Hi-Lake on the ground level would have a nice impact on livability at that station. There really isn't a lot of room up on the platform, so I agree that would be difficult. I don't think it would even have to be food related, but thinking outside ...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Lake Street station is pretty gross now though, tbh. Someone (city, county, CTIB, the Lake Street Council, someone ) should really work at funding better janitorial services. I've been a proponent since 2004 of Metro Council considering how to provide retail *in* or *at* the major light rail statio...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Maybe MLS can grow its fan base to a point where networks think they can sell ads at significantly greater rate so that owners would have a broader guaranteed revenue stream. I think that with the proliferation of outlets that can cater to individual fan tastes may work against soccer in the US. So...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Because if the public is already paying to heat a weather-protected space, gods forbid those in need actually use it for heated weather protection in the dead of MN winter. Better to have it sit empty and immaculate while those people freeze on the streets, right? I understand the coldness of my co...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Anyone else feel that the Lake St Blue Line station is getting pretty nasty? One fellow commuter commented that it is one of the worst she has seen in her travels around the country. It's been a topic on Nextdoor too. Has it always been this bad? Or is it really not that bad? I've been transferring ...

Re: Tim Hortons

The East Lake St store was open for business this morning. The wall along 36th Ave S is all windows, but along Lake St. mostly blank. There is an entrance at the corner facing Lake, but I thought is was a shame that the full windows couldn't be along Lake. I see from the above picture, however, it c...

Re: Southside - General Topics

Tim Hortons was open for business this morning. No big fanfare or balloons or anything, just a few customers ordering and a full house of employees going to work. Maybe they'll have a grand opening ceremony at some point.

Tim Hortons is having a soft opening right now, not sure until what time. Just walk in an order and it's on the house. They said grand opening will be sometime next week.
This is the 36th Ave S and East Lake St location.

KSTP is here covering the meeting. I guess they're expecting heated discussion.

Let's all just try to drink 17% more at home so that the extra sales can make up for the extra operating expense.

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the post. I expect this meeting to be heated. I hope they have a larger space secured than last week's Oppidan Project meeting at Hiawatha Park Rec Center, might help keep the tension level down.
