Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Prior Super Bowls in Miami and Dallas were branded as "South Florida" and "North Texas". What city would one think of when they hear South Florida? Miami would be the answer 99% of the time. When the Super Bowl was in Dallas what I heard was Arlington over and over again to tell the world that desp...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Arizona Cardinals? Golden State Warriors of the NBA? My point still stands the Super Bowl brings in a significant amount of viewers that would otherwise not be watching football. Hence being geographically challenged. While that in and of itself is not a bad thing. Telling all those fans the Super B...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Now we just need to lift the ban on growler sales on Sunday and allow bars, clubs, restaurants to stay open later ... at least during the weeks surrounding the game day. I wonder if the NFL knew when it made its decision that unless the law is changed, it will be illegal to buy beer during the Supe...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

The price of parking in Stp is not really the point I was going for. I live in St, Louis Park so a quick drive into one of the ABC ramps off 394 then jumping on the Green line from the warehouse station was more of what I was trying to say. I have nothing against riding the bus. However when Joe pub...

Re: Trader Joe's in downtown Minneapolis

nBode Thanks for providing your prospective. It is nice to read that some college students seem to be branching out from T.V dinners to meals that at least involve some amount of cooking know how.

Re: Trader Joe's in downtown Minneapolis

Silophant I might be underestimating just how many college students who live outside of the dorms are in the area. I have no idea how the meal plans at the UoM and other area colleges are priced. Nor do I know if once you move out of the dorms as a student you can continue to buy a meal plan. No dou...

In SLP where I live I have Cub*, Byerly's, two Lund's*, Whole Foods*, Trader Joes*, Aldi, a Ranbow*, and another one or two I may have missed all within 10 miles.

I was really disappointed to find out that my Metro Transit magnetic pass with a stored value does not work at the TVM's. Whenever I am taking the Blue line south it is not that big of a deal since I took a bus first and get the transfer. It is once I am heading back north that I feel bad since I "d...

"The only hang-up from the city involved the entrance to the hotel’s 41-stall underground parking ramp, Oberpriller said, which has since been changed."

For a hotel with 123 rooms doesn't that seem like a very low number of parking stalls?
