Recession Hits Uptown

I'm sure this isn't news to Minneapolitans, but I just noticed that The Uptown Bar is closing. (It was famous locally for a variety of musical reasons. The Replacements and Soul Asylum and Husker Du practically lived there, and Tommy and Bob Stinson's mom still worked there.) I saw my pals from Communist Daughter play there last time I was in town in May. [via]


This was just an excuse to mention that I'm going to be in town in a couple weeks. Chuck and Chuck both happen to be getting married on the same weekend, completely separately!

It's not the recession. The owners are cashing out and developers are cashing in, building more two-story retail behemoths like the North Face and Victoria Secret stores.
