Our food scene is absolutely top shelf
Sure, ten years ago it left a lot to be desired, but since then we’ve developed into a world-class food destination. National food nerds are perpetually calling out the Twin Cities as being the next big thing in food. Who are we to disagree? Just last year, celebrity chef Gavin Kaysen moved home to open his flagship restaurant Spoon & Stable. We also have several James Beard Award-winning chefs that also call the Twin Cities home like Tim McKee, Alex Roberts, and Isaac Becker. Plus, the list of Twin Cities chefs nominated for the coveted Beard Award increases substantially, which is a good sign that the food here is just as good as it is in the other, better known food cities.
January is a reasonable time of year to eat ice cream
In fact, the newest ice cream shop, Milkjam Creamery, just opened this past December and they’ve been running solid ever since.
Not being able to buy beer on Sundays sucks
Look, Sundays can be a lot of things to a lot of people. Some people do their church thing while others watch football. Some grill with their families and some do, well, God knows what, but the thing that all of these things have in common is that beer should be involved somehow (that’s right church goers, you’re doing it wrong). When beer can’t be purchased under the strict oppression of the law, it blows. Honestly, nobody wants to have to drive to Wisconsin just to nab a sixer. This holds true for the whole state and not just the Twin Cities.
