Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

Yes, same place as Tacos Nachos and Beer. It already seems this place is doing better business.

Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

Afro Deli is now open on the 7th Place ped mall in downtown. A very welcome addition!

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

When I boarded today at Dale heading east, the 3-car train was all Type I cars, and they definitely went back west again after getting to SPUD. Is the weather putting even more strain on the fleet numbers of the Green Line that they are adding "blue line" cars as well?

Re: Rush Line Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

It could turn east at Beam and then north on Southlawn and back west along County Rd D back to the trail ROW. I used to live a block from here and there is no reason for the Beam station to be next to a Costco, Kohlman Creek, and a new CarMax.

Re: *F antasy maps

That maps shows just about exactly what I'd envision for these lines as well, although it might be more feasible to have Gateway and Rush terminate behind the SPUD head house rather than in front. I hope Rush can take this street routing, but given Gateway through out all proposals that did so, I'm ...

Re: Seven Corners Gateway Site

Well, I certainly hope they still build as much as they originally intended on the 7 Corners Hardware site, since the store closed in the process of that deal. What a shame if they build something more watered down and a beloved hardware store closed in the process (even though it sounds like they w...

Re: St. Paul Skyway System

I live downtown St Paul, and most fellow residents seem to use the skyway to get around. I usually take the sidewalk though, as long as the weather isn't incredibly awful (plus the skyway won't get me all the way to work anyway).

Re: Saints Lowertown Ballpark

With the amount of crazy (awesome) antics and promotions at Saints games, I think CHS could build that recognition they're looking for. The variety within CHS is probably an asset with respect to options for promotions. Plus…a farm coop company ties in well with the Farmer's Market next door and the...

Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

I noticed that Bin Wine Bar closed and is moving to Linden hills. Anyone know if there is anything planned to go in that space? Nothing I've heard thus far. Bin seemed to close rather abruptly. I'm not too sad, as I've not had good experiences with their service. It shouldn't take too long to fill ...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Another side swipe of a left turner on University. Channel 11 had comment from the automobile driver. Epic. Let's not forget that it's actually illegal to pull out into the intersection unless you can make it ALL the way across immediately. No hanging out in the intersection waiting to make a turn....

Re: Rayette Building - (261 Fifth Street East)

The Strip Club's new sister restaurant, Saint Dinette, is now locating in this building, instead of the Lofts at Farmers Market. Good fit for them I think.

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

I witnessed the same thing, going from Regions to Central station. I saw an eastbound and a westbound train leaving Central (both directions) and neither had to wait to cross the intersection when leaving the station. A week or two ago going from just north of Central to the intersection of 4th and ...

So the sides of the building that are visible when looking toward the river are blue, and those visible when looking toward the bluffs are brown? Red, actually. I hope the next phases of this development happen soon, to get rid of that big parking lot next to this first building. I think this will ...
