OCTOBER 2015 UPDATE!
I am updating this filming location but it brings me great sadness to do so. The Columbia Arena could not be saved. The city of Fridley purchased it and are in the process of tearing it down as I type this. I went back to the arena on October 4th, 2015 and snapped the photo below. You can see building's side pillars still in the ground.
I took a brick home for a keepsake.
