Restaurant Rumor Report Vol. 32: In a Blink, it's gone!

OK, so it was here longer than a blink, but the Scottish sandwich shop, Blink Bonnie was served papers to vacate their last St Paul location on 7th & Wacouta this week.

Hopefully, we won’t have to […]

Restaurant Rumor Report Vol. 27: Skyway, Eat Fresh!

I know, I don’t normally follow the opening and closings of skyway restaurants, but it’s on my walking path to and from the office.  Pretty sure this is going to be another Subway restaurant located in the 401 Building (Securian), right next to McDonald’s and the police station outpost.  It’s actually the old location of […]
