Let It Be Condos

Everyone was abuzz over the weekend with the news that Let It Be is closing. What’s most shocking to us is that people remember where Let It Be even is anymore. It’s not like any of my friends have any reason to trot on down to Nicollet anymore — jaunting between Crate & Barrel and Britt’s? (Don’t even tell your sob story about buying toothpaste at Target.) And what are the divine forces of the marketplace doing in replacing it? A 46-story condo. C’mon, do we need more of these damn things? (Previously: an MPR profile of The Fetus.)
