Huge blow to the local arts scene. I always turned to them to see what local events were happening when I needed something to do on the weekends. Although their coverage at times was hyperbolic and "clickbaity", they were instrumental in serving as an alternative outlet to the mainstream ones..
Damn that really sucks.
dang man, that’s a huge fucking bummer
We live in hell.
And yet it’s still better here than most of the US.
There was something about going to a coffee shop / restaurant and grabbing that paper copy of the city pages on the way out that I am going to miss forever
lol what the fuck
And all the on air personalities have been taken off already, I’m gonna miss my boy auggie 5K in the mornings
This is still accurate, even more so today!
Really pissed that a) Strib shut down City Pages and b) they are actively stopping efforts for people to archive those articles. Why didn't they just try to sell it?!
Minnesota Hardcore | A Music History Series | Twin Cities PBS Originals
Another reminder to listen to Bob Mould. Especially today.
When Vita.mn was a thing, I liked that paper waaaay more than City Pages
also killed by Star Tribune
Barely made it past the governors mansion on my run before the crazies overtook it.
Stay the fuck at home today.
We have family in the Twin Cities area that we obviously haven't seen in almost a year, but it really feels like the next time up there will be really really strange. A lot of our favorite spots have closed (Muddy Waters, Butcher and the Boar, Bellecour) and a bunch of our favorite artists have been outed as not very good people. Weird to care more about the closings in a city 4 hours away than the one you live in that hasn't been as deeply affected.
The Schlotzsky's in Edina was the last one in the state and when it shut down a few weeks ago it fucking crushed me. My dad and I would eat there every other weekend since I was in Elementary School :(
