RIP Ira Heilicher, owner of Pracna on Main, Tuggs, Vic's


Sad news for the local music and restaurant communities: Ira Heilicher died last week at the age of 65.

The Star Tribune ran a piece explaining Heilicher's involvement in both areas. With his father, Amos, Heilicher was involved in the record business, working at a label as well as distribution, and retail outlets. Later, he got into real estate, most recently at St. Anthony Main, where he owned Pracna on Main, Tuggs, and Vic's.
