Anyone heard anything new about the 38th Street Station apartments? They’ve demolished 2 of the houses behind The Cardinal.

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

People have been willfully obtuse about this.
Unfortunately that's where we're at, with everything. Defund the police is a bold phrase. Police reform has been brought up forever, but the reform has been too slow. So we say, let's be bold. It clearly isn't working out.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

This place seemed to be on borrowed time even before this year. It was really hot 15 or so years ago, but it struck me as more about drinks and the scene rather than the food, which was better elsewhere (and probably cheaper to boot). I'd bet that many people who loved it in its prime haven't been ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I liked Hopcat. Food was solid and their beer list was better than Cityworks. Prices may have been a bit high. I'm sure their rent was a bit high as well.

West River Parkway is open again as of Monday, at least until 34th Street, where there has been some underground project going on all summer. (Anyone know what they’re doing?)

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

I guess the new speed limits are starting to be implemented in Minneapolis. Given that the city doesn't have squads for traffic enforcement and cars have been doing what they want with MPD focused on other things people are laughing at this project given that current speed limits aren't being enfor...

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Definitely a difficult time. How is everyone doing today? I’m sad, angry, frustrated, and emotionally exhausted. Doing my best to balance being ally and taking care of myself.
