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.)

The quest of finding an apartment in Minneapolis

Does anyone have tips on finding apartments beyond Padmapper? When is a good time to actually look/sign leases for apartments for next August?

Also, are there any neighborhoods you would recommend for a graduate student at the U? [more inside]

Aurora Borealis in Minneapolis tonight?

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.

Toddler activities in Twin Cities, Minnesota

Asking for friends: They have a 2-year old and are looking for various toddler activities around the Twin Cities (accessible by public transit a plus, but farther away may be worthwhile for something really awesome), especially both downtowns, Roseville......... Swap groups (clothes, toys), sports/physical classes, play groups, a swimming pool with shallow toddler area, music and art classes, dance (esp. tap dance, including shows if young kids can't participate), etc. TIA.

Looking for recommendations for a lawyer in a property line question

My neighbor and I share a retaining wall which is going to need some repairs soon. It's become abundantly clear to me that I need to sit down with a lawyer, a bunch of documentation, and a list of questions just so that I know where things actually stand here in terms of obligations and what this shared ownership actually means as a practical matter. So, as far as AskMe goes, I'm hoping to get recommendations for lawyers in Minneapolis that people have worked with on property line issues like this.
