I've heard of D4 but I don't listen to much punk anymore - I don't think they've released a record 4-5 years. Triple Rock is a cool little venue and you're literally on top of the band, it's awesome! Concert season is upon us, I'm so pumped. Going to my first show in a week, can't wait.
yeah, it has been a while since they have put anything out, and i know between the last two albums, it was 6 years. They really slowed down when their drummer graduated college and became a psychologist.
Nofx was playing at the Cabooze, me and my buddy that lives up there stopped in at the Triple Rock before the show and had a few beers.
Perk, did I scare you away?
No no. I was online looking at some things yesterday. Uptown and the Warehouse district are pricey. I really don't need to be in a real trendy area, just not the burbs. My friend mentioned St. Louis park, but I haven't checked that out yet.
St Louis park is great, I lived there for a year. Cheaper than Uptown and Warehouse district and almost as good of a location.
You could come live with me in CR. I'm gonna need someone to look after me and change my depends and make sure I don't steal any books. I'm an old man...I get confused.
One thing I'm running into is it doesn't seem to be a real dog friendly city, which kind of surprises me. At least as far as apartments go.
Misty is more of the nurturing type.
Yes but she steals from me.
Yes, we had trouble in the SW metro with this when we were renting.
I love the Twin Cities. Great location, love the vibe in the cities and lots of great culture.
Mpls/StP has some really great neighborhoods, cool places to go, visit and eat. The St Paul area where St. Thomas is located is pretty awesome in particular. Cool arts scene, cafes, bars, diners, biking, pretty fun.
As mentioned by another member here, the Twin Cities also has a really cool public radio system (MPR). I stumbled across The Current online a few years ago and love it. The online stations are good as well (Local Current, Wonderland and Heartland in particular). I've also taken my family on vacation to the Twin Cities a couple times and had a blast.
If you're a foodie, I suggest Punch Pizza, The Nook and the Capital Grill. The Museums and of course the baseball park are fun too (especially when the White Sox come to town). TCF Bank Stadium and Dinkytown are also pretty cool as well (make sure to attend when Iowa is playing there). If you get a chance, attend a U of M hockey game too . . . fun stuff.
I've loved living in Chicago since the mid 90's, but as my youngest gets ready to head out for college in a few years I'm looking for a way out of this tax and political nightmare.
If I stay in the Midwest (which I prefer) I like the Twin Cities, Indianapolis, Des Moines and college towns (Iowa City, West. Lafayette, Bloomington), they're all on my short list of eventual destinations. I can always come back and visit Chicago but I see our future outside of Illinois . . . that is if i don't go back to Texas. I'm in the oil & gas industry so I may go back to God's country too.
Can't go wrong with the Twin Cities, good luck Perk!
