@ForeignLegionMN is Closing

Damn.

I think the comments about Minneapolis vs. St. Paul are really telling. I was born and raised Minneapolis and never thought I’d live in, much less LOVE, St. Paul. But if you’ve been to Lowertown lately, you know St. Paul is doing something very right.

Minneapolis put a Sports Authority on Nicollet Mall and a Jack Links restaurant in what should be the theatre district, that kind of sums it all up for me. Shape up 612.

Apparently the old West End Toby Keith’s location is going to become a Punch Bowl Social.

On one hand I’m glad that something is going in the space and the bowling and games will likely draw a good crowd. On the other hand, this place looks a bit like a hipster version of Dave and Buster’s. Something about this irks me, but I also think it’s probably a great idea and fit for the shopping area.
