A Better Post-Saints Game Food List

Did you see the article City Pages posted about the best places to eat after Saints games? Go ahead, read it. I’ll wait…

What do you think? I’m going to go out on a limb, and say that I disagree with 7/11 of their list. Call me crazy, but escargot bourguignons doesn’t scream “baseball food.”

I’ve created […]

See. Click. Fix. Or, How To Make The City Better


The City of Saint Paul has partnered with See Click Fix, a mobile app for reporting non-emergency items to the city officials.  If you live in St Paul, go to your app store of choice and download it.  For the Saint Paul branded app, it’s called Saint Paul Connect.

I’ve personally been on a pothole reporting […]

Mark Your Calendar: June 14th - The Green Line Debut!


As a Downtown resident, I can’t fully express how excited I am to finally see a start date for the new light rail.  June 14th, I may just need to celebrate.  Truth be told, I probably won’t use the LRT much, as I really don’t go to Minneapolis all that often.  However, I’m excited to […]

New Aquarium Coming to Downtown?

The City of Saint Paul has secured a deal with a big name player in the aquarium world to build a new tourist-attracting aquarium in downtown St Paul. With the addition of the LRT, having a world class tank just makes sense. City leaders wanted a location that was close to the LRT tracks and […]

New Water main for the Pointe & the Penfield

Residents of the Pointe this week found themselves soaked in history. With construction of the Penfield coming along nicely, it was time to hook them up to City of St Paul water supply.  When the city was looking at the connection, they decided it was time make some upgrades to the old water main.

And by […]

My Open Letter to the Saint Paul City Council

My open letter that was sent to the Saint Paul City Council & Mayor Coleman.

I am writing to you today to bring light to an issue I feel needs to be addressed in regards to the Saints Stadium. You may or may not be aware, but the City is taking the privately owned parking lot […]

6th Day of Downtown Shopping Challenge – Lowertown's Neighborhood Holiday Bazaar

Day 6th of the Downtown Shopping Challenge brings us a curve ball of sorts.  Rather than one store, this is a group effort in Downtown’s “it” neighborhood – Lowertown.  The Holiday Bazaar is a first year event that I imagine will grow every year from her on out.  There’s a lot of great hand-made items […]

5th Day of Downtown Shopping Challenge – Minnesota Historical Society

The 5th day of the Downtown Shopping Challenge brings us to another museum, the Minnesota Historical Society.  The bonus here is if you’re a current member, you can get 20% off items in their store between tomorrow (December 6th through December 9th).  As much fun as shopping in their store with such a great selection […]
