Just because something's popular at the State Fair doesn't mean it's going to be popular in real life, as evidenced by the absence of carnies at the cool table during lunch. At least those high school teacup-operators will now have easy access to the food they'll inevitably eat crying in a stall, thanks to Turkey To Go's new storefronts.
Now opening two skyway storefronts (Mpls gets a sit-down resto, St. Paul a window -- ha!), Turkey's betting people will enjoy their "tastiest birds in town" not just while watching the Twins/Gravitron, having previously slung drummies and sammies at the fair since '59, and more recently at Target Field, reversing the natural order by putting a target on a turkey. Their bread-and-butter's still giant turkey sandwiches loaded with your choice of sauces like cucumber, homemade Buffalo, or Thai peanut, and toppings like jalapenos, shoestring fries, and dried cranberries (in your bread, in your bread, they are dry-innnngggg!). They'll also be unveiling half and whole turkey pitas, which you can adorn with whatever you'd like, or get in pre-set styles like the salami/ tomatoes/ homemade dressing Italian, and the Buffalo Bleu, who insists that it rubs the spicy wing sauce on its skin, or it gets the hose again.
Should you be more of a turkey traditionalist, TTG also peddles Thanksgiving bird by the pound with gravy and stuffing, because what goes better with Thanksgiving turkey than shoving a carny in a locker?
