Improve air flow and staying cool in old apartment?

I rent a second floor apartment (815 sq ft) that is around 100 years old. I work from home a lot and summers in Minneapolis can get hot and humid! How do I improve the air flow and or keep it cool without air conditioning? Challenge: some of the larger windows do not open. [more inside]

Minneapolis Brew Pubs & Breweries for Pub Crawl on Saturday?

Hi, we have guests visiting us in Minneapolis for the 4th of July holiday weekend. We've got a minivan and designated driver and we'd like to drive around and visit a number of small breweries/brewpubs tomorrow. We took them to Indeed, Fulton, and 612 last time they were in town. Where should we go? Surly seems like an obvious possibility, but where else?

Raising a Glass to the Tony Awards in Minneapolis

Basically, where can I go to watch the Tony Awards this Sunday night in Minneapolis or St Paul? I must, must, must see Lin-Manuel Miranda in as real time as possible... but I don't don't don't have cable and I prefer to be in a crowd anyway. Help me be surrounded by my Hamilton people on Sunday night!

How is property tax assessed in Minneapolis, MN?

We were told that the taxes are based on the assessed value of the home, and that it didn't vary by neighborhood-- i.e. a $300k-valued home would pay the same property taxes whether it was in ritzy mc-ritzville or the wrong side of the tracks. But when we looked at property taxes, they seem to vary wildly by neighborhood. What gives? [more inside]

Can you recommend a pediatrician in the Twin Cities?

Hi, our favorite pediatrician is moving to a practice out in the far suburbs. We really like her, but it probably makes sense to find someone not so far from where we live. We live in south Minneapolis so someone in the city or a first-ring suburb would be ideal. As a non-doctor, I find it hard to evaluate anyone's medical skills, but we obviously want someone good who also has a rapport with children. We ask lots of questions (we are curious worriers) so a doctor who likes explaining things to parents would be great.

Any recommendations on where to buy high-gluten flour?

Hi, I've recently started to make bagels at home. For best results, I need high-gluten flour. I'm sick of paying a lot in shipping costs when I buy from vendors on Amazon, but I also don't see that kind of flour in the grocery store. Can anyone recommend a cheaper online vendor they've used or suggest a local source or how I might find one? I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota (historically, the "Mill City," which makes me feel worse about paying to have flour mailed to my house.)

Where to stay near Minneapolis airport (MSP) before very-early flight?

Next Thursday I have a 515a flight (on American née US Air, so Terminal 1 is my point of departure) out of MSP. Assuming I'll go through security at around 400-415, it seems silly to stay at a hotel the night before. The airport is open 24 hours. What I'm curious about is if I can I go through security around midnight and try to catch a few ZZZs in the terminal? If not, can I sleep safely outside of security, or will local law enforcement tell me to move along? [more inside]

Renting as non-desirable tenant

I’ve decided to finally move out of Madison, WI, for many reasons. I have traction now that my landlord won’t be renewing my lease, which expires in August, due to my lack of housekeeping. I’m hoping to move to Portland, OR, with Minneapolis in second. I’m aware that I’m not a desirable tenant at all for a number of reasons, and I’m trying to start strategizing now how to get an apartment of my own. More inside. [more inside]

Can you recommend a bike shop in Minneapolis for my wife?

Hi, my wife is looking to buy a new bike and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a particular store in Minneapolis or its environs. Neither of us knows all that much about bikes and the last time she bought one it wasn't a great experience (the clerk sold her a bike that really wasn't a good fit for her needs and the people at that shop are snotty.)

Specific places for my fiance to apply at

So my fiance is very smart, hardworking, great with people, courteous, etc and so forth. He's currently working as a lead teller at a large banking corporation. He's been there for a while, and the management staff over him have all rotated and gone from being pretty good managers to people that make working there frankly awful for him. He of course wants to leave, but both of our experience has been that looking at places that post lots of classifieds from different sources is that you may as well mail your application to the void. SO! What are your recommendations for specific employers whose job postings we should keep an eye on? [more inside]

I'm looking for contractors for retaining wall repairs in Minneapolis.

I'm getting estimates for repairs to a retaining wall in south Minneapolis; the web's awash in listings, but I'm hoping that some MeFites have worked with and had good experiences with some contractors they could recommend. The wall in question is about 10 feet high and holding up my neighbor's yard, so this is more of a structural thing than a cosmetic thing.
