#introductions Hello! Longtime Robbinsdale resident here, I live right across the street from where the Blue Line extension will (supposedly, hopefully, eventually) go in.
I built my own house here, took me three years. I can maybe help with home maintenance-y Qs?
Married a Canadian, have 2 small kids, enjoy handcrafting websites, learning LISP (Racket), & publishing little books.

I’ve been planning on “restarting” local Homebrew Website Club meetings this summer. https://indieweb.org/Homebrew_Website_Club
Interest checks have been low but there is one other good fellow interested. I’m planning on having it at Wicked Wort brewery in Robbinsdale because I’m selfish and live near there, but if anyone who might be interested knows of a better venue, let me know!
Breweries in MN can’t sell growlers once their production hits 20k barrels/yr. https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-lifestyle/castle-danger-can-no-longer-sell-growlers-but-wants-to-change-the-law
Thing is, we should actually keep this rule since it gives smaller breweries an advantage over large ones.
The correct winning solution for Castle Danger and everyone else: keep production < 20k barrels and **raise prices**! The demand is clearly there.

Looks like I’ll soon be able to remove the racial covenant on my house/property.
I could not find an actual web page with this information on it, if anyone can supply a link I’d be grateful.
(also per Greta Kaul on there's an error in the press release and the vote was 63-1)

Longtime #Robbinsdale resident, has two small kids. Hand-crafted websites, books, LISP. Socialist-curious.
A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
