Dinkytown Professional Review and Guide

"There is a never-ending debate over the origin of the name Dinkytown. The most compelling theories hark back to the small cars for hauling railroad goods and workers, which were called dinkies, or from the long-lost “dinky” movie theater. The approximately five-block commercial district of the Marcy–Holmes neighborhood, nestled just north of the University of Minnesota (U of M) campus, is home to nearly 40 restaurants, numerous live-music venues, and plenty of quirky places to shop. To survive here, businesses must meet the strict tastes of students, college professors, and international students in their search for authenticity, value, and adventure. Dinkytown is the Twin Cities’ tiny answer to Greenwich Village."
