The owners of Zimmy's, a Bob Dylan-themed restaurant in Hibbing, Minnesota where Dylan grew up announced on Thursday that they would be closing after 30 years of business. The announcement follows months of struggles with tax delinquency, which led to the loss of Zimmy's liquor license. Though they initially tried to stay afloat by adding a delivery service, specialty coffees, and breakfast items, it wasn't enough.

"It is true, we had to close our doors today," chef Audrey Johnson told Duluth News Tribune. "We lost our liquor license in January, and without a license in Hibbing you can't cover certain costs. ... Having the license attracts a lot of customers."More »
On Tuesday, the Minnesota Heritage Preservation Commission voted against Kelly Doran's bid to build a six-story boutique hotel on Fourth St. in Dinkytown. According to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, Doran had approached the Commission seeking approval for his plan to raze the businesses. The final decision will likely fall to City Council.

If Doran's plan goes through, Mesa Pizza by the Slice, Publika Tea and Coffee Union, and Camdi Vietnamese restaurant, as well as the University LifeCare Center and Dinkytown Tattoo will be demolished to make room for the hotel, which will span from 13th to 14th Avenue. According to a Star Tribune article from Tuesday, neither the buildings nor Dinkytown itself are considered historic, but neighbors are vying for protection against the demolition. Supporters of the demolition believe that people are more important than the buildings in terms of preserving history, the article added.More »

This isn't the first time Dunkin' Donuts has attempted to return to the state; the company tried and failed to open 100 restaurants in 2008. The same happened in 2001. And remember Krispy Kreme? The franchise lasted in Minnesota for a mere six years, closing its last stores in early 2008. Take note, Dunkin' Donuts: According to a Kare 11 story from 2008, the Krispy Kreme decline may have resulted from the company's attempts to open too many stores too soon.
