I saw Staind, Dropping Daylight, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace and Puddle of Mudd there. All super great concerts and there were no problems. I hope they will have bands in again!

First off its spelled Hmong. I am a white male and I have friends of all colors... and most are NOT gangsters. I think maplewood as a city looks great with all ppl of different race... and did you know 65% of gangster in Maplewood Police Department records are white males ages from 13-35. That's over half, and there is still blacks, asians, and mexican... but over all I think you are just down right dirty and racsit
Funny. "MOST" of your friends aren't gangsters? Hmm. NONE of mine are gangsters. And, it's spelled "racist", since we're correcting spelling today.

First off, my credentials....I worked at Myth since day one and was there all the way to the end. I worked both sides of that nightclub, from Security to the office, I know this club better than anyone. I agree with a lot of your posts', yes, the bands were great, yes, there were a lot of problems, yes, its a police trap, Yes, Gangs....But its the location that brings all those problems. Myth opened up in 2005 with the vision of attracting the "Upper Class Crowd"...The people with real money...We turned away anyone at the door who didn't look like they had money, etc...Sad Right? I know....But as the days went on and those types of people weren't showing up, money being lost, the club "lowered" their standards and started letting in anyone and everyone. I could keep going but anyone reading this can figure out the rest of the story why this club couldn't survive

My valuable piece of advice to you Mr. Mike Miranowski? Don't waste your money, time and energy. Buy the name and move the venue if anything. I used to work for LiveNation as well, they agreed the venue needed to be moved in order to succeed. There is a reason First Ave stays open, Varsity theater stays open, Fine line stays open....Get my point Mr. Miranowski?

The Era of the Super Club has long passed. I love your enthusiasm, and I know this building like the back of my hand, its a beautiful place, but it just wont work....Not in Maplewood

Mr. Miranowski, please do us all a favor and buy the Freight House in Stillwater instead. That place has a long history of profitability, but now it desperately needs a new owner and a fresh start. Plus you can still tell all your golf buddies that you own a nightclub.

The Myth turned into a Hmoung and Mexican Gang hangout. The cops did what they could to keep Maplewood safe. I can not believe that Maplewood is going to allow it to open again. I guess two police officers being murdered the past two years was not enough to wake Maplewood up. I would not walk my dog in Maplewood....someone might eat him...
What does Hmong and Mexicans have to do with the two murdered officers? That was during the time the club already closed. On top of that, one officer was murdered by a black man and the other by a black and white man. As for the dog comment, get a pitbull and you'll be safe!

Just another trap to get Hmong folks to pour tons of money into the business and have them treat Hmong folks like $hit.

Make it a classic rock venue and you won't have the problems. Keep the punks out.
Also, you'll have good music as well.
Totally agree.....saw Jonny Lang play awhile back and he was amazing. The venue is awesome, music sounded great, no fights or problems with police.

However, keep bringing in the junk-for-music bands and the hoodlums follow...You know who I mean too. Cater to the classic-rock groupies and your business will flourish forever!

Rock and metal, you'll do fine. Other than that, bring in the trouble.

It's called PROFILING, and it works! This isn't Rocket Science people, hip-hop and rap bring out the uneducated, unemployed, and mostly broke. Throw in the gang bangers, folks that can't speak English..... and geez, I wonder what the problem is? LOL!

You play "white folk" music, you'll get people who may have an occasional "dust-up", but your knife, bat, gun wielding crowd won't come close to the building.

You may call me racist, bigot, whatever you choose, but I'm pointing out the clear FACTS that get proven over and over, and over, and over......= No Brainer.

What is really shocking, is you have these "businessmen", that actually invite the problem, then "wonder" why they had a problem. You just can't make this stuff up.

Go ahead...I know you want to say it. It's Hmong people you're referring to. Obviously and sadly, your IQ is way below average.

I think he refer to the all race mentioned that most of them are not gangsters...not his friends. I guess none of your friends are not gangsters because they're white right? Yeah go back to Inver Grove.

The problem with the Myth was mainly with the people who operated it. When an establishment is run by crooks, you can expect a certain crowd to show up. It isn't racist to point out that the majority of problems that arose in/at/around the facility happened on nights in which there were hip hop shows. The guys who ran this place are the same idiots who tried to run The Stadium (County Road E, White Bear about 3 miles from The Myth) into the ground. Buisness has suffered a lot since the Stadium switched from a true sports bar to more of a night club feel with hip hop music and the same thing happened at the Myth. It's really not worth your investment, sir, please don't throw away your money!
