If they were so worried they should have built an enclosed stadium.

how many people who live in Stillwater work in Stillwater? How many work in MSP?
I don't think a significant number of Stillwater residents work at the airport.

Re: Root District - Farmers Market / Royalston Station

If it’s a photo studio, I don’t see why that couldn’t be incorporated into a new development. I would imagine that the price of the land has skyrocketed since Southwest light rail is going through. It seems like such an awful use of land that is extremely close to the light rail station. Sent from ...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 250 Hennepin Ave - 21 stories - 256'

Any thoughts on what is going on here. I have not seen this truck before. It's a sewer vacuum truck. Not sure what it's there for - perhaps they are connecting to the main sewer line and needed it clear. Or something happened in the construction process that needed a vac truck. They are using it fo...

Minneapolis Vehicle Equipment Violations

I worry this may be well intentioned, but wrong. Drivers are responsible for operating their vehicles safely. That includes keeping their vehicles in safe working order.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

McKinney Roe had the lovely combination of being overpriced with poor service. I agree. I went there once. The food was average, the prices were well above average and the service was not good at all. I didn't return. You can't run a bar or restaurant relying on stadium event business. You need to ...

Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

I don't think free fares will do anything to improve ridership. People don't choose not to ride because the fare is too expensive. They don't ride because transit doesn't work for them. Many of our buses only come every 30 to 60 minutes and Metro Transit randomly doesn't operate some trips because t...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

This isn't a bad location. It's right next to HCMC. The largest employer downtown. It's also a few blocks from quite a few large residential building and there is a new apartment building next to it that is almost complete. This could be a really successful spot for someone that could make this a re...

Re: Nicollet Mall

The Christmas Market should be on the Mall. Not in Peavy Plaza as it originally was (although that's better than in Loring Park), but along the length of the Mall, where it can provide a reason to stroll the length and visit the businesses (such as they are) next to it. That's a whole point of doin...

Supposedly, Pearl and Thief will be moving in from Stillwater, but it sure is taking a long time to do so.
I personally doubt that will happen. The closed almost a year ago to move. I don't know how any restaurant could afford to close for a year.
