Lee Egbert, one of the forces behind Dashfire Bitters and 11 Wells Spirits in St. Paul, has thought about this question quite a bit. So, with a self-produced documentary on the history of spirits and the crafting of cocktails called “Finding Fire” as the basis, Egbert decided to start the Thirst Network. After partnering with Keith Kirby (now the company’s CIO) and Matthew Hainley (the company’s CMO), the team started to develop the right mix of features. “From tea, beer, soda, wine, spirits, coffee, water, whatever it is … that you like to drink, viewers will be able to see shows about that beverage,” he said. If viewers like a certain show, they can give it a good review and that will ensure they see more shows like it in their video feed. Viewers who just want to veg in front of a 24/7 live stream, like a traditional TV network, can choose the “Spin the Bottle” option. “So, in this ratings system, you can decide you don’t like this show anymore, and it will take it out of your Spin the Bottle stream. Ads and sponsorships will make up some of the revenue…but, to get off the ground, Egbert hopes to be one of the first startups funded by the newly created MNVest program. “It’s a crowd-sourced funding system that’s equity based, which is different than Kickstarter, per se, which is rewards based,” Egbert said.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 46-year-old man was arrested Friday night after another man was assaulted and later died from injuries at a Worthington hospital. Chim LoVan has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon causing substantial bodily harm, both felonies, in connection with the incident.

She told police he wasn’t home, had last seen him at 5:15 and told her about a fight that happened before he left the residence. Officers contacted him, and he said he was in Spirit Lake fishing and denied knowing anything about an assault. LoVan later told police that the victim had called him a racial slur, but he denied assaulting him. The complaint states LoVan went to the victim’s house and the two got into an argument. He denied assaulting the victim, but said “You are going to die, you owe me,” according to the.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two men are accused of murder in the death of a 90-year-old farmer in his Carver County home last month, according to charges filed Wednesday. Reinol Vergara, 35, was charged with two counts of second-degree murder and Edson Benitez, 29, was charged with two counts of aiding and abetting second-degree murder in the death of Earl Olander at his Carver County home on April 9 or April 10.... According to the criminal complaint, Vergara and Benitez bound Orlander’s hands, beat him and then stole from his house. Olander’s entire house was ransacked with drawers pulled out and thrown around, cabinets and closets opened and emptied and various documents and papers strewn about the residence. Deputies got a tip Saturday from a citizen cleaning out a vacated St. Paul apartment. That citizen called police after learning Olander was the victim of a homicide, according to the complaint. The complaint states an investigation showed that Edson Benitez used to live in the apartment. According to the complaint, Vergara told police that he had recently painted Olander’s house and knew he’d be an easy target because he lived alone and had money. The complaint states they entered Olander’s residence through an unlocked back door.
