Tonight - 2nd Annual Cuban Film Festival at St. Anthony Main Theatre

Time: 7:30pm

Location: St. Anthony Main Theatre, 115 Main Street SE

With sell-out crowds at last year's festival, Minnesotans' love affair with Cuban cinema is clear. And it is also clear that there is a hunger for information about this intriguing island to our south, so rich in music and the arts. Yet, despite all that we have to share with one another, our government still denies us access. So, although most of us can't get there in person, we can get a taste of Cuban life through the movies.

The film festival will again be presented at St. Anthony Main Theatre and will consist of six features.

The line-up is as follows: 
March 17 - Los Dioses Rotos (Fallen Gods), 
March 24 - Páginas del diario de Mauricio (Pages from Maurice's Diary), 
March 31 - Eso que Anda (Van Van Fever).

All films are subtitled, and each will be followed at a nearby bistro with a discussion.

Admission: $7.00.

2011 Minneapolis Earth Day Clean Up Scheduled for Saturday, April 16

Mark your calendar for 9:30am-Noon on Saturday, April 16, to join the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board for the annual Minneapolis Earth Day Clean Up.

It’s easy to get involved - no pre-registration is required.  Volunteers can choose from a lengthy list of Clean Up sites.  In our neighborhood, it's Father Hennepin Bluffs Park, 100 6th Avenue SE (the East Bank side of the Stone Arch Bridge).

About Earth Day Clean Up  
   
A collaborative effort between the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) and City of Minneapolis Solid Waste and Recycling, the Minneapolis Earth Day Watershed Clean Up was initiated in 1995 to draw attention to the water quality improvement needs of Minneapolis’ lakes and the effects that individual actions have on urban water quality.

The goal of Earth Day is to provide a volunteer experience and environmental education to Minneapolis residents and park users. This annual event involves cleaning major watersheds and water bodies in the City of Minneapolis including: the Chain of Lakes, Lake Nokomis, Lake Hiawatha, Powderhorn Lake, Diamond Lake, Shingle Creek, Minnehaha Creek, Bassett’s Creek and the Mississippi River.

Environmental Education is a key part of the Clean Up. Onsite programs offer volunteers the opportunity to learn about various issues affecting our environment and community today.  The programs are designed for individuals of all ages.

Past programs included:

River/Stream water testing presentations
Stream erosion/pollution presentations
Recycled art programs for youth
Birdhouse building
Wildlife effects of pollution
Water-cycle education games

'Seeing the Minneapolis Riverfront' Photo Contest Sponsored by the Mill City Museum

 Mill City Museum invites you to enter your photographs of the Minneapolis Riverfront that reveal the relationship of people to the environment in the past and present.

Judges will be looking for striking images of the Mississippi River and the Minneapolis Riverfront that show the relationship between people and the environment past and present, what that relationship has meant to different people in different times, and the positive and negative consequences of our use of the land and waters. Ideal photographs will convey a sense of place of the Minneapolis Riverfront and will address the way people use the riverfront and its resources. Photographs can focus on the environmental success stories or on the work yet to be done. 

Winning photographs will be framed and displayed in the museum’s lobby in July and August 2011. Honorable mention photographs will be displayed nearby in a high definition slide presentation.

This photo contest is part of "Greening the Riverfront" a year-long series of programs highlighting how the Minneapolis riverfront has transformed from an industrial center to a center for new ways of thinking about our relationship with nature. The series includes the exhibit “Seeing the Big River: The eco-art work of Peter L. Johnson," on display in the museum’s Mill Commons through May 16, 2011. Johnson’s photographs, found-object sculpture, and video invite us to see the Mississippi River in new ways, and help viewers discover beauty amidst environmental damage. He will be one of the contest jurors.

Mill District Business Spotlight: Level Salon

Although we've walked by Level Salon countless times since moving to the neighborhood, it wasn't until a recent visit that I discovered what a cool place it is.  Located at 903 Washington Avenue South, owner Gary Anderson and his staff recently celebrated the salon's 5 year anniversary.

Level Salon 006

Level Salon 012

Gary (pictured above) co-owned Take Five on First for 17 years prior to opening Level Salon.  He loves the energy of the Mill District neighborhood, and was careful to incorporate the original beams of the 100+ year old building into the salon's sleek design. 

Below, sample pieces from Level Salon's first art show grace the wall.  Gary featured the work of Bulgarian artist Silvia Yordanova for this first event, and it was a smashing success.  The next art show is planned for later this year. 

Level Salon 004

The old beams work well to frame a product display:

Level Salon 010

The space Gary started with was a blank canvas.  He worked with an architect to ensure the limited square footage was utilized efficiently, functional and visually pleasing.

Level Salon 001

But let's be honest.  A salon can have a great location and snazzy appearance - neither of which matter if it's missing the most important element - terrific people.   Level Salon excels there, as well. There are 9 stylists, serving both men and women clientele.  Services include haircuts, color and highlights, manicures and pedicures, and eyebrow/lip waxes.   

They also offer special occaison styling.  Being located across the street from the Aloft makes it convenient for wedding parties.  Check out some wedding photos on Level Salon's Facebook page.

As Mishon (below) explained to me during what could qualify as the worlds best pedicure, the team has worked together with Gary for many years, and are like family. 

Level Salon 013

It's been a long time since my last pedicure - mainly because memories of a sadistic technician who cut my toe still haunt me.  Mishon, on the other hand, was very gentle, yet very thorough.  If you're in need of a pedicure, or looking for a gift certificate idea, you can't go wrong with Mishon.

Level Salon 015

I'll be heading back to Level Salon in the near future for a hair cut with Jeffrey.

Vikings Stadium Update - The Global Stadium Proposal

The Minnesota Vikings chances for a new stadium are improving, it seems, based on a proposal from the Minnesota Timberwolves.  MPR broke the story of a "Global Stadium Solution" prepared by the basketball team.  But what does it mean for the Mill District neighborhood?

I'm speculating here, but the proposals call to keep the Metrodome operating as a community sports center probably means the new Vikings Stadium would be built on the other side of Downtown Minneapolis:

1. The Star Tribune site being considered is adjacent to the Metrodome - would 2 stadiums side-by-side make sense?  No.

2. The other downtown location is near Target Field and Target Center (home of the Timberwolves.

3. Core business district movers and shakers are working to locate the new stadium near Target Field.

Trying to read between the lines, including the dome does not make sense except to preclude our neighborhood as the new site.  Minneapolis City Council Predident Barb Johnson seems to agree the the dome aspect of the proposal is a bad idea in a Star Tribune article in today's paper:

Barb Johnson, the Minneapolis City Council president, said Friday that while she favors a global solution to the Twin Cities' professional stadium issues, the plan's aim to build a new Vikings stadium and keep the Metrodome was a "red flag." The Vikings have played at the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis for 29 years.

"There'd be two football stadiums, and I just don't think that's very practical," said Johnson, who said she had only recently seen the plan.

Tonight - Central Riverfront Forum: Creating a Downtown Gateway to the Mississippi River, Focus on Fuji-Ya

Time: 6:30pm – 8:pm

Location: Mill City Museum, 704 Second Street South

Where a fifty-foot wide canal for Mississippi waters once supplied the world’s largest direct-drive hydro-powered industrial complex, a visitor will now see the boarded-up Fuji-Ya restaurant, mill ruins, a shady grove and a railroad bed, and can look beyond to the St. Anthony Falls, the Stone Arch Bridge and the Third Avenue Bridge. Just two blocks from Washington Avenue, the downtown street grid meets the river here, creating two levels and scenic views of the falls.

The Central Riverfront Forum will focus on this site. Tom Meyer of Meyer, Scherer and Rockcastle will share insights he prepared with a public-private team facilitated by the Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership and the Minneapolis Park Foundation.

Other topics include an update on restoring the falls in the East Channel of the Mississippi and an invitation to apply for Downtown area representation on theAbove the Falls Citizen Advisory Committee.

The Central Riverfront Forum provides a quarterly update on Central Riverfront issues. Additional 2011 dates will be:  June 9, September 8, December 8 at Mill City Museum. 

This event is free.  For more information, please contact Cordelia Pierson at 612-465-8780 x212 or cordelia.pierson@gmail.com

Mill District Business Spotlight: Bierbrauer Chiropractic

I recently met with Dr. Chris Bierbrauer of Bierbrauer Chiropractic, located at 221 10th Avenue South in the Bridgewater Lofts building.   The soothing spa aroma puts you into relaxation mode as soon as you enter the office.  His website states it's "a new kind of Chiropractic care", and I quickly learned exactly what that meant. 

After earning his degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1995, Dr. Bierbrauer practiced in Green Bay, Chicago and Platteville.   All the while, he knew there was a better way to treat patients, and about 10 years ago he started looking at soft tissue work.   Since establishing his own practice here in the Mill District in November 2008, he now concentrates on two soft tissue methods - the Active Release Technique and the Graston Technique.  This is what sets Bierbrauer Chiropractic apart from other practices.

Below, Dr. Bierbrauer demonstrates how he uses specific tools to manipulate nerves at the muscle level.  This allows him to zero in on issues ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome to tennis elbow.  He cited an example of a patient suffering from "calf contracture" - her calf muscles were so tight they felt like bone, and she was unable to stand flat-footed.  Soft tissue treatments were the effective treatment for her.

Patients range from newborns to seniors, although a large percentage are athletes - runners, iron men, triathletes, skiers and weight lifters.  In fact, Dr. Bierbrauer's first patient was a pitcher from an AL Central Team in town for a game against the Twins.  Although his office wasn't officially open yet, he was sought out because of his ability to perform the tissue treatment needed for this professional athlete.

A colicky baby may be in need of a single adjustment to provide relief.  The birthing process can be tramatic - all the manipulating can cause immobility in the neck from the cranial nerve that comes off the brain stem. 

Dr. Bierbrauer explained the efficiency of soft tissue treatments.   He does not subscribe to the old ways of scheduling X visits per week for X number of weeks.  Rather, he spends more time with a patient during a visit, and only schedules a follow up if it's needed.  (So this old joke does not apply here: "How many chiropractors does it take to screw in a light bulb?  Only 1, but it takes 36 visits.")

Dr. Bierbrauer lives in North East with his wife, Missy Wilson, a Graphic Designer for Duffy & Partners (another Mill District business).

Don will be at Sanctuary this coming Monday, March 7, 2011 from around 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. He'll be here with a few of his friends and family and would be happy to meet you as well!  Come see Don's art and, while you're here, enjoy one of Chef's new appetizers, one of our fab new martinis ~ or give yourself a treat and make a dinner reservation!  www.sanctuaryminneapolis.com
