Re: Southside - General Topics

This is the basic structure in Minnesota Brewpub: Can produce beer onsite (but only one site. All of the new Town hall locations get their beer from the main location) Can sell packaged beer directly to customers in 64oz and 750ml containers (incl Sunday) Can sell other company's alcoholic beverages...

They want the vetoes. They'll be the centerpiece of their ad campaign for the 2018 governor's race.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Credit card/Paypal processing fees are probably the reason for the all day rush hour rate and the $4.50 minimum.

Also, from the google play page linked in the strib article - "Pay a single fare or multiple fares for a group of riders, and store multiple tickets on your phone for future use."

The lawyer involved in most of these cases is currently going through a very contentious bankruptcy because of all the sanctions he's racked up related to the porn copyright trolling cases he was filing prior to moving on to the ADA scam. Also being investigated by the FBI

Re: Sunday Liquor Sales and other Beer/Liquor Legislation

The union thing is a red herring. The claim last time around was that one (unnamed) employer told the Teamsters that Sunday sales would (maybe) allow them to ask for a reopener. Presumably, Sunday sales might lead to Sunday deliveries and the current contract doesn't account for that given the curre...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Study the facts and evidence grant1simons2. Both the Wells Fargo tower and Cappella tower were suppose to be near 1000 feet. (Capella 1100' WF 947') The city wouldn't allow neither to surpass the IDS. That's why Cleveland has the 947 foot keys tower. In mid to late 90s Target wanted to build a towe...

Re: Renting vs. Owning | Apartments vs. Condos

I bought in downtown in 2006 and sold in 2014 for about $6k more than what I paid in 2006. (so a decent profit given 8 years of equity) If I waited another year I probably could've raised the asking price 7-10%. Most everything downtown and the newer (2004+) buildings in Northeast and Calhoun/Uptown...

Re: Zoning in Minneapolis

In Minnesota, a brewery can only fill growlers of their own beer. In Oregon a "growler refill station" is a third party retailer selling beer from multiple breweries.

Re: The Eclipse

I'm not saying parking stalls don't have value but *presumably*, your unit was advertised as having x stalls included in the price. Correct? Incorrect. For the most part, parking spaces in these buildings are treated as separate pieces of property, with their own purchase price, proptery tax and HO...
