Roseville malt shop hosts Hollywood production
It’s not often that a strip mall off Larpenteur and Lexington avenues in Roseville makes like a Hollywood studio backlot, but on June 23, that’s exactly what happened.
At around 6 a.m. that Tuesday, Snuffy’s Malt Shop owner Mike Mueller ushered in a production crew working on a film called “Wilson.”
Said Grace Blesener of her late husband, Mayor Bill Blesener, “I think even he would have been a little emotional today.” (Mike Munzenrider/Review)
Blesener spearheaded facility, but died before its completion
Some 100 people packed into a corner of Little Canada’s newly finished public works building on June 22 for its grand opening and dedication to the city’s former mayor, the late Bill Blesener.
The cavernous yet bright new building at 2858 Centerville Road was packed with heavy vehicles and heavy hearts for Blesener, who championed the completion of the 25,000 square foot building.
Blesener died from cancer on Dec. 21, 2014 at age 74, days away from completing his 10th term as mayor.
