Around Saint Paul - Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar

We stopped in to a well known fixture in Lowertown Saint Paul recently and spoke with the owners of the Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar; Sara, Stacy, and Andy Remke. We asked them to give us a brief description of the "Black Dog" as it's affectionately known in these parts.



Lowertown Reading Jam 2014-2015: "Dakota Writers Speak to Presence: Honoring the 38+2"

On the 152nd anniversary of the largest mass execution in the history of the United States: the hanging of thirty-eight Dakota men in Mankato for their role in the U.S. Dakota War, contemporary Dakota writers speak to Presence. We speak several generations after the U.S. Dakota War and the United States government’s expulsion of Dakota from Minnesota. We speak, even as we are often erased or misrepresented in mainstream media and culture. We are here. Please join us as we reflect, remember, and share.

It will be a fuller week than you can imagine. There is a lot going on, but you don’t have to just imagine all of it. You can see it with your own eyes and hear it with your own ears. TWISP is your first step.
