Panera Bread Uptown

I’ve always thought the area along side Panera Bread would make a good painting. Not necessarily from this view but more from the street with all the tables and what have u.


Lamps look nice with inverted color.


Reflection is a good thing.

Storm Damage Off Lake Calhoun

Lot of wind and rain around the lakes yesterday. I find it hard to take good photos when its overcast and everything is so green.

Stella’s Fish Cafe

Stella’s Fish Cafe is now open for business, or should I say they have a bar on the roof and it’s finally open. Yeah, that’s what I meant to say. I was thirsty last weekend so I went to check it out. The general layout of the bar and dining area is about the same. I don’t necessarily think it looks bad, it just doesn’t look as nice as the Tonic did. The elevator was slow so I took the stairs three flights to the roof.

Stella’s has the only patio in Uptown with a nice view of the DT skyline. Unfortunately those seats are supposed to be reserved for dining only, which only makes sense I guess. Trust me, there’s way$ around that though. I didn’t order any food because like I said I was thirsty not hungry. The menu was priced about right for a seafood place. Overall the service was good except they screwed up on a round of shots. If you ask for Crown and you get Vodka instead don’t be shocked. Just drink it, that’s what I did.

Girl Friday has typed up a much better and more accurate review of Stella’s if you’re interested. Below are some shots I took of the building.

Nothing to do With Uptown

This post has nothing to do with Uptown what so ever but I recently took a trip up north (way, way, way, up north past any civilization) and took some nice pics. I decided some of them were blog worthy. So here they are... If you’ve ever seen anything similar to the first picture in real life and or know the name of the object in view, you are a true Minnesotan in my book. mad props. Clicking any photo should take you to my flickr page with a whole grip of other shots to browse if you like that sort a thing.
