Re: Uptown Restaurant News

Dang, I liked the Boneyard. Good food though prices seemed a bit high in general.

Re: Penn and American - Bloomington

I actually like Southdale; it is not bad when you park on the York side, and it is pretty compact.

Re: 66th Street - Richfield

This road is super wide already and there's hardly ever any traffic on it. Surely 3 lanes would have been sufficient with street parking!! Grr!!

Re: Penn and American - Bloomington

Major lol after eading the hundreds of Strib comments--I never knew so many people loved this crappy mall! What completely baffles me is there is a much better mall (southdale) with a nice SuperTarget next door, just up the road., yet people voluntarily come here? :shock: Let's face it, the Target a...

It does have Saguaro and Mac's Fish and Chips. Both are good.
And Subway, Starbucks, Prima, and a yogurt place

Re: Grocery Stores

If Cub had a better deli I would shop there, instead I will shop at Kowalski's, Lakewinds or Lund's. Not impressed with the Target deli but their shelf items generally are not expensive. Does Hyvee have good deli items?

Re: St. Paul Skyway System

I walked through the entire skyway on a Saturday, I think I only saw one or two other people. It's kind of a surreal experience...I recommend everyone try it at least once, especially since you may not be able to experience it if the population continues to grow downtown.

Re: Lyndale Garden Center Site - Richfield

Regarding the striping configuration on Lyndale: Richfield is restriping Lyndale between 64th and 66th (adjacent to this development) to eliminate one of the through lanes and create bike lanes and on-street parking. Wow, this is great news! And on-street parking, it's about time. Unfortunately, no...

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

I would like to see the skyways system expanded with room for bicycling and walking and better street connections. Imagine year round bicycling through an indoor skyway network. Would be a unique and awesome draw to our area.

Re: Minneapolis Fiber

New runs should be strung with Cat6 or even better Cat6a, but not Cat5. Cat5 is defunct.

I like Arbor Lakes. Because I have no desire to ever shop or eat there, it keeps those things far away from me.

Re: Suburbs - General Topics

Cottage Grove is interesting. There is very little retail period in Cottage Grove. It's pretty much all residential and until recently there was not even a Caribou coffee shop and a few chain fast food place. For the most part, the people of Cottage Grove actually did not want a Home Depot at all. T...

Bahahahahaha.

I think some of these buttons I think they changed the mechanics, you can't repeatedly press it and hear "wait" because kids/adults would sit there and hammer on them.

Boulevard trees

I notice that north of 42nd street east of 35W tree coverage is much more sparse in Powderhorn and Phillips. Also many sidewalks don't have boulevards and trees. South of 42nd street tree coverage is much more dense. You can see it on Google Maps just about anywhere. What is up with that?
