I hear there's a good outdoor location just downwind from the Pigs Eye Sewage plant.

Displaced by the New Year’s Day explosion and fire in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis that killed three people, members of the adjacent Dar Al-Hijrah mosque have spent the past week searching for a temporary home, so far without success.

Their building at 504 Cedar Av. S. survived the fire that destroyed the adjacent building, a street-level grocery store with apartments upstairs, but severe water damage left it unusable, perhaps for months, Abdisalam Adam, director at the Dar Al-Hijrah Cultural Center, said Thursday.

About 300 people pray at the mosque, considered the state’s first Somali-American mosque.

Several churches stepped forward in the days after the explosion to offer temporary space to the mosque and its cultural programs; so far those churches are too far away or don’t have enough space.

Mosque officials said they will hold prayers Friday at the nearby Brian Coyle Center of Pillsbury United Communities, a cultural hub of the neighborhood.

Didyou say Pigs Eye? Would that mean pork is involved?
