I have not been to a comedy club in the Twin Cities in years. Don’t get me wrong, I like to laugh, just haven’t gone to a club in a long time. But here are three clubs I know people can go to…
Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy at Mall of America
Comedy Corner Underground on 15th & Washington
And of course, the (Dudley Riggs) Brave New Workshop on 8th & Hennepin
Whoa, lots of question there, we’ll start with the first one…
#1 I actually collect old Minneapolis “artifacts” (postcards/hotel keys/newspapers/etc) and have done so for almost ten years. I have some items that date back to the mid 1800’s.
#2 I was born and raised in northeast Minneapolis, although I grew up in “Nordeast” when it was the lower middle class, industrial, white trash part of the city, not the cool/hip place that it is now.
#2 (part two) I started this blog to share my old “stuff” about Minneapolis (see what I did there?) and while I still do that, this tumblr has also become a cheerleader for the Twin Cities, which is something our Midwest sensibilities wouldn’t let us do in the past, lest we seem to prideful.
#3 No. I have not contacted any producers/directors regarding movies made in the area.
This is from the city of Minneapolis website…
In Minneapolis, you can lock your bike to racks and street poles. Do not lock your bike anywhere else (i.e. street lamps, garbage cans, trees, benches, hand railings). If a bike is locked illegally, the City has the right to place a warning on the bicycle for 24 hours and then impound the bicycle.
Catching up on “Asks” tonight, pretty sure you are asking about this post. That would be the Foshay Tower, which was built in 1929, and was modeled after the Washington Monument.
*nods head sympathetically, but in a “right on” sort of way*
I don’t know how far you made it, but getting halfway to Bloomington from Target Center is a long ass walk.
Good for you.
YOU my friend, have paid closer attention to the video http://www.vikings.com/media-vault/videos/New-Stadium-Fly-Through/ad405006-7736-460f-82c4-58ea3ee243d3 than I have.
Traffic? I’m not sure yet, but if we all ride our bikes or take public transit, it shouldn’t be a problem. But seriously, if they close off Park and Portland for the new urban park, it could get messy without a solid plan in place.
Hey Becky! Sorry for my late reply, but here we go…
First off, I’ll tell you about some spots that are “North Minneapolis” but not downtown, or the North Loop. Actual Northside landmarks.
The old North Branch Library at 1834 Emerson Ave N, built in 1893
The Broadway Pizza caboose on West Broadway & West River Road
Friedman’s Shoe Store on West Broadway & 4th Street
The flagpole on Victory Memorial Drive
I’m also a fan of the old Mikro Kodesh Synagogue on Oliver & Oak Park Ave N
There is also the (old?) Hell’s Angel’s clubhouse at 3234 Washington Ave N near Lowry.
The 1908, Forest Heights Church at 2054 James Ave N
Hope this helps!
I like the positivity in your “question”, AND It is a city you will miss.
But the snow… THE APRIL SNOW…IT KEEPS FALLING…AND IS SUPPOSED TO FALL MOST DAYS NEXT WEEK. *break down sobbing* MAKE IT STOP, PLEASE!
*takes deep breath, wipes snotty nose on shirtsleeve* I’M GLAD YOU LIKE IT, WE LIKE YOU AS WELL!
COME BACK AND VISIT US SOON! *waves…break down crying again*
New? Not that I know of. Their “website” is by angelfire… http://www.angelfire.com/mn/dillingerfour/ and the last login on their myspace account was in 2010… http://www.myspace.com/dillingerfour. Other than that, head down to the Triple Rock Social Club and ask Eric Funk “What’s new?”.
What, you back?! Me and “I Have Nightmares” have been following each other since we were tumblr toddlers (four years?), so I can’t BS him with “Drive 45 minutes north to Running Aces Harness Park, that’s where all the cool kids hang out”. Now, “Check out City Pages” is a lazy answer, so I’ll throw some sites out to you that might give you a few ideas…
and follow me on twitter, https://twitter.com/StuffaboutMpls for any updates on impromptu social media beer bashes that pop up.
Welcome home dude.
