Blackbird Café is back! Don't worry, the antlers are, too. Hot Dish stopped by during opening week to give you a peek at the new space. Owners Gail Mollner and Chris Stevens outfitted the corner of 38th and Nicollet with yes, the signature antlers, but also a wall of framed mirrors, hardwood floors, a mixture of tables and booths and even a few pews. Despite the puritanical vibe from cushionless pews, the rest of the decor gives the space a warm, funky feel.

After Sunday night's sold-out performance at the Fine Line, it became clear that we can no longer call Robyn the "Swedish dance pop artist" but simply Robyn the pop star. She mesmerized the club with her dance moves, superb beats and energy (despite being sick). PHOTOS BY TONY NELSON on Nov....
