North Minneapolis billboard tells visitors: "STAY AWAY STAY ALIVE" [PHOTO]
A billboard over the Dowling Avenue North exit on I-94 doesn't exactly welcome visitors into the North Side with open arms.
The advertisement says, "STAY AWAY STAY ALIVE," with the Xcel Energy logo and banner printed in much smaller font in the top corner.
The reference, of course, is meant to be to power lines, not the area's reputation for violent crime.
