Checking out


With only five delegations staying in the city, and everyone else being bussed out of the Xcel and over to party town, some downtown St. Paul businesses are giving up on the idea that there’s any economic benefit for them out of the Republican National Convention.

One large eatery in Town Square, which specializes in closing immediately after the lunch rush normally, had tried staying open until the supper crowd left. Today, they gave up the ghost and shut it down after lunch.
