Something like a licensure board requirement for police, increased education requirements and an increased salary see...

Those stairs have been closed (and broken) for half a dozen years. It is nothing new this year.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

They had a bunch (majority?) of teppanyaki tables on the second floor, and an incredible vaulted ceiling. Really the whole restaurant was beautiful inside and out. I miss it dearly.

...they put coke in their Old Fashioned. Wut :? It was... not good, especially considering how good McKinney Roe's various Old Fashioneds were. They had a smokey one... Yum. I'm hoping Fhima's makes it till post-COVID. They've got an amazing smoked old fashioned named "TELEPHONE CALL FROM ISTANBUL"

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Bus Stop Brewhouse closed at some point in the past few months. There's a "For Lease" sign up now, so I guess it's permanent.
Mixed feelings about that place. They had a great burger and fries, but horrible (duck) wings. Good beer, but they put coke in their Old Fashioned.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

It's more likely that there was a case of COVID-19 on the crew than that they ran out of funding. If they let the place sit for a few days and do some cleaning it should be fine I would think??

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Hope this one didn't run into funding or some other difficulty. Workers stopped early yesterday afternoon and no work is happening today. Anyone heard anything?
