The Hub of Hell. The Next History Walk

August 9. 7PM

Do you have memories of, or stories from, your youth about this notorious district? At one time, this spot was the only place to get a legal drink in South Minneapolis because of the policy of Municipal patrol limits. Historically, The Hub was a concentrated entertainment area where paychecks were cashed and liquor flowed, the music played and fun and misbehaving flourished. Meet at the old hub of the hub at the Eagles #34
parking lot at 25th Avenue and 25th Street. We’ll walk over to the lone survivor of the hub’s heyday, the Hexagon Bar, and share some tales there.

Some Highlights from National Night Out!

Thank you to all of our Block club leaders who organized great NNO parties all over Seward. Creative ideas included chalk art, visits by council members, bicycle performances, a rented snow cone maker and storm drain cleanup.  We also want to thank all the local businesses who donated prizes or food/drinks for our NNO raffles, these include the Seward Coop, Birchwood Café, Los Campeones, Peace Coffee, Welna II, Pizza Luce, Jim the Barber, K’uh Chocolate, Zipps Liquors and Shamrock Marketing.

On one block a MN Master Water Steward in the Mississippi River watershed coordinated a project that involved getting  block party attendees to volunteer to clean up the storm drains and adopt them for keeping them clean.  If you would like ideas on how to clean up the storm drains or how to adopt a drain email
