*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.
If there was a Dillinger Four or Run Westy Run reunion concert going on in the Twin Cities in July 2013, I would be the guy to talk with. One Direction? Not so much. Pretty sure you can camp out on StubHub or Ticketmaster for this one.
Great question, but sorry, I have no clue. Check back for comments to see if anyone has any answers on this one.
First thing, chip away the ice and purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka (if you don’t know this quote, or have never seen Purple Rain, please unfollow me now). Go have dinner at some fancy place in downtown Minneapolis (Murray’s?). Then, I don’t know, make out for a while on the Stone Arch Bridge (dress warm, it is February in Minnesota for God’s sake).
Stuff about Minneapolis = ROMANCE!
Not busy or over-the-top romantic on Valentine’s Day? Oh kiddo, you are killing me. Alright, let me think about this… *rubs fingers on temples, enters into “Love Doctor” mode*. I GOT IT! *snaps fingers*, go to Psycho Suzi’s, they are having a “Love Me or Leave Me” party, and for $25 you get a medium pizza (pizza is awesome there) and a cocktail for each of you (or 7Up since I know you aren’t 21 ;P). And I hear Savannah Smith will be providing music with her ukulele!
If that seems like too much work, go to your nearest CUB Foods, buy a big bag of Totino’s Pizza Rolls, and rent The Lorax from the Redbox on your way out the door.
Now you know, Stuff about Minneapolis speaks the language of romance.
