Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

Does anyone know what is going on in the lot in front of the Health Partners clinic near West End? I've seen work going on for probably over a year now. I would guess some sort of utility work, but it seems pretty extensive.

Re: MN Highway 100

I drove west bound on hwy 7 from the Wooddale bridge last night around 5:00 and the traffic heading east was backed up past Louisiana. All of that was getting compressed to a single lane which had to exit southbound on Wooddale. What a mess. I guess it's going to take a few days for people to realiz...

Here's hoping they're just upgrading.
I agree. A lot of fun evenings spent there with friends and family. Guess I'll have to brave the tent for one last hurrah and klinking of mugs.

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

It came from the article above. Councilmember Tim Brausen said a brewery planned to open near the West End would like expanded taproom hours. With Bryn Mawr Brewing opening up a couple of miles away, we will likely have 3 decent options in the area. You could almost include the Herkimer and LynLake...

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

I'm sorry you are bummed, and its too bad for the owners that they can't do it anymore. But I'm not particularly sad. Ale Jail has better service and just as much interesting beer, and is easier to get to. I also think South Lyndale, Elevated and Zipps are similar quality. And all are local indepen...

Four Firkins is abruptly going out of business on Saturday: http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/morning_roundup/2015/06/last-call-for-four-firkins-craft-beer-shop-is.html For many of us beer geeks, this was more than just a beer store.

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

It appears that the remainder of the main roof truss will be completed a beam at a time, unlike the large sections that had been put in place in the past. The first beam was put up about an hour ago.

Re: MN Highway 100

I spoke with someone from MDot this week and they told me that the tree and brush clearing between Hwy 7 and just north of Minnetonka Blvd is for the new sound wall. Also, for anyone who is curious like me, the old Holiday station at 100 and Mtka Blvd is being used by the construction crews for thei...

Re: Toro Headquarters Expansion - Bloomington

The expansion was completed a couple of days ago in a flurry to try to make the deadline for the unveiling Wednesday and the century celebration yesterday. Here's a link to the Strib story with a photo of the building.http://www.startribune.com/business/266692351.html

Re: Mowers: manual reel push vs. gas-powered vs. electric

My wife and I have a reel mower and an electric. The reel is 21 inch wide and works really well on my small lawn. Obviously it can not mulch leaves in the fall so the wife got an electric mower for a $100 from her employer - Toro. I've only used it a couple times and it doesn't have the oomph moder...

Re: Hockey

The Wild are so much better than they were a year ago. The Chicago series should be very entertaining. We kind of had the Blackhawks number in the regular season. A lot will hinge on whether Kuemper is healthy enough to play. At least we won't be facing Varlomov anymore. He was the only reason that ...

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

That was more a commentary on the mayor saying it multiple times whenever she talks about the situation. It's like Kevin Nealon doing his subliminal man bit. Eventually everyone will believe.
It's nice to know though, that because the situation might affect me, my opinion is invalid.

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

[ BUT, what I am saying is that if a "Move the Bikepath" cohort emerged that included "the bicyclists", then wouldn't that be cutting the legs out from under the Kenilworth crowd? As interesting as that could make things, I think that the Kenilworth group would just refocus litigation on the enviro...

Recently McLaughlin seems more dismissive of the shallow tunnel option (note the "little cities" comment at the las...
