Fargo TV remake will include Duluth character played by Colin Hanks

I just read that there is going to be a TV remake of Fargo. There will be a character on the show from Duluth.

“Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety when he comes face-to-face with a killer.”

Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh and Glenn Howerton join FX’s limited series adaptation of Fargo

Band Practice Space in Duluth?

My new band is not able to practice anymore in the basement we were using. We are starting to look elsewhere for a place to practice. We already know about the Clubhouse. We are waiting to find out if there will be an opening. Does anyone know anywhere else we can ask? We are loud so we obviously need a place that doesn’t care about that or is soundproofed.

Does anyone have any info on the Craft Brew Village in September?

On the Bayfront Festival Park website it lists one of the 2013 events as Craft Brew Village, Sept. 20-22. The Hot Air Ballon Festival is also going on at the same time. Just curious if anyone has any more information. That weekend coincides with the official start of Oktoberfest in Munich, so I’m wondering if this maybe is Fitger’s Oktoberfest.

Brewhouse to nix North Loop Plan

It looks like the Brewhouse won’t have a location in the Twin Cities. “Fitger’s Brewhouse nixes North Loop plans

Duluth craft-beer bastion Fitger’s Brewhouse has scrapped its plans to open a Minneapolis location in the North Loop space that once housed Trocaderos. Brad Nelson, a spokesman for Fitger’s parent company Just Take Action Inc., which also owns Burrito Union and Tycoons Alehouse and Eatery in Duluth, said Thursday that the scope of the project proved more than they were willing to take on at this time.

Oktoberfest 2012 not at Bayfront Park?

Does anyone know why Fitger’s is not having its Oktoberfest at Bayfront Park this year? It doesn’t really seem like an Oktoberfest if it’s going to be indoors. Here’s a link to some of the new details.

Where to have VW Jetta TDI oil changed?

I’m just wondering if anyone has any good places to go get an oil change for a 2010 VW Jetta TDI.  This will be the first time it won’t be performed by a VW dealer because the free oil changes have expired. I’m assuming Foreign Affairs might be my best option. Normally I change my oil in all my vehicles but this is the first diesel engine I’ve ever owned, so I’m a little nervous to do it myself.

Places to refill Co2 tanks in Duluth

I just moved to Duluth and I’m a homebrewer. I was wondering if there are any local places to refill carbon dioxide tanks for kegerators? I have my own tank.
