The parents learned a routine for this year's recital; then they strutted their stuff on the dance floor at Wild Bill's on Saturday night.
Woodbury Dance Center parents have the chance to learn a routine and perform it during the annual recital. Following Saturday night’s recital, they thought it would be fun to show off their moves—so they hit Wild Bill’s and took over the dance floor. (Check out the videos.) Kirsten Stafne, one of the dancing moms, came up with the idea. This year the moms and dads did a joint routine—the dads dance first alone (Welcome to the Jungle), then moms (Born to be Wild), then dads and moms together (Sexy and I Know It).

We’re less than a week away from one of the biggest unofficial holidays in the U.S. Super Bowl XLVI is set for Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Last year’s game set a U.S. record for viewership with 111 million people watching in this country alone. Patch talked to some Woodbury residents to find out their plans for the big game—and we also asked makes a good Super Bowl.

The new sports bar was busy already Monday, Nov. 21, on its opening day.
Just four hours after it opened in Woodbury, Wild Bill’s Sports Saloon was humming Monday afternoon. “It’s been busy,” said Mike Tupa, who owns all four Wild Bill’s locations. The renovation of the former T.G.I. Friday’s went well, and the restaurant, at 546 Commons Drive, opened on time, Tupa said. Outside Wild Bill’s after lunch on Monday was Cottage Grove resident Steve Hardy, who said he enjoyed his burger. He said Wild Bill’s seems like a fun place and he could picture it becoming a good night spot for Woodbury. “The theme seemed pretty cool,” Hardy said. Customers can expect friendly service, fresh food and a casual atmosphere, Tupa said. It’s also a peanut bar. “Shells can hit the floor, no problem,” he said. Tupa also touted the …

A recap of action from the Oct. 12 meeting; preview on tomorrow night’s meeting.
The Woodbury City Council last week approved 24-7 work hours for a sewer project, learned about a recent spike in chemicals in city water, approved the preliminary plat for the next additions to the Stonemill Farms development and heard from County Attorney Pete Orput Dozens of area residents also packed the council chambers as Woodbury honored the winners of this year’s photo contest. Public Works Director David Jessup said the jump in levels of chemicals in two wells at a former 3M dump site in Woodbury does not appear to indicate that the perfluorochemicals, or PFCs, have migrated to private wells in the city. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is unsure what caused the spike, Jessup said, but officials will continue to monitor the …

The restaurant is currently renovating the former T.G.I. Friday’s location and plans to open in November.
Wild Bill’s Sports Saloon is planning to open its fourth restaurant at the former T.G.I. Friday’s location in Woodbury. Update: Check out photos from opening day at Wild Bill's.

Friday’s closed, and company officials viewed it as a good opportunity to gain a foothold in the east metro, especially since Wisconsin enacted its own smoking ban. The space is currently being renovated, and the Woodbury Wild Bill’s is expected to open sometime in November. Moe wasn’t sure how many employees will be hired. Wild Bill’s features homemade food and competitive drink prices, Moe said. The Woodbury restaurant will join its existing locations in Apple Valley, Blaine …
