St. Paul blogger (Eccentric Aspects) and photographer Nick Wormley created this awesome timelapse video of what St. Paul’s new Green Line light rail line from our capital city to Minneapolis will look like once it starts running in 2014. How’d he do it? By walking the length of the route with a camera attached to his head (here are the details)! H/T @generebeck,
This is the exact same light rail line I will be taking every day to Minneapolis for my new venture next year. Watch and enjoy:
At the turn of the century, photographer George R. Lawrence traveled the United States and took panoramic photos along the way, eight of them in Minnesota. Mr. Lawrence would likely be dismayed to learn how easy it has become to shoot panoramic photos! Read more here and see the full collection here.

Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen is expanding in the Twin Cities by opening another location, this one at Lexington and University Avenues in St. Paul. I tried it the day it opened and found it to be far superior to the KFC it replaced. Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen Opens In St. Paul from David Erickson‘s YouTube channel.
Okay, this is a new thing I’m going to do in conjunction with my Twin Cities Bars, Restaurants & Entertainment Hotspots map. I will occasionally write up a little blurb on places in the Twin Cities that I like for one reason or another and then link to these posts from my Twin Cities mashup. We’ll see if it drives traffic deeper into my blog. Without further ado, then…
My eldest sister is the best! I absolutely loveTavern On Grand and she knows it because I took her there when she visited from Vermont for her annual trek through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. She remembered and sent me a gift certificage from Tavern On Grand for Christmas. Sweet!
Whenever I have friends or family in from out of town, I take them there for the Walleye dinner. It’s about seventeen, eighteen bucks for a two-fillet dinner but it’s worth every penny. Uhhhhhhhh, so good. They’ve got plenty
of seating but a small bar, so if you’re going there to hang at the bar and take
in a baseball game, good luck.
Not only do they have the best Walleye
ever, but they serve Summit
Beer as well. They have wi-fi access, but it’s restricted. ASIDE: You
might want to mention something to them about that ;-).
I’ve started a Twin Cities bars, restaurants, entertainment and just places I like Google mashup. Click on the balloons for each location to get a popup text box with more information. There are also links below the map you can use to the same effect. I’ll try and add a location a day. You can always get to it by clicking the Twin
Cities Hotspots Map link on the sidebar on the right.
