Sitting on the couch drinking beer for entire weekends... guilt-free
In the middle of the summer when it’s perfect outside, it’s pretty hard to justify getting home from work on a Friday, sitting down on the couch with a beer, and not getting up again until Sunday morning. When it’s it's like a snow typhoon on the other hand, what else is a man to do?
We get 10,000 lakes' worth of new places to ice-fish every year, which in and of itself is pretty damn cool. Now take some of those ice-fishing shacks and repurpose them into anything and everything, from art galleries to mini dance clubs.
Thinning of the potential herd
Minneapolis is a pretty cool city, with enviable natural resources ranging from urban lakes to parks galore, and a diverse and vibrant infrastructure that has given way to one of the most underrated food, biking, and arts scenes in the world. But thanks to our wiley snow and cold, 99% of said world has no interest whatsoever in coming here to take advantage of/totally ruining it.
