stuffaboutminneapolis: giantevilhead: What can you tell me about the ‘Jucy Lucy’ (sic) that I didn’t learn from Man Vs Food? They looked pretty tasty to me… Fighting words in these parts is the argument over who makes the best Jucy/Juicy Lucy. I didn’t see the Man Vs Food episode, but the bottom line is the cheese in these things is molton freaking hot, and can/will burn your face off. I...

Pitchfork: The Hold Steady's Craig Finn Co-Writing... →
As much as any writer in America, Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is equipped to tackle provincial fandom of hair metal. He’s an expert at combining screamingly triumphant guitar solos and bleary Minnesota hardcore show reminisces in the same song. So it’s pretty awesome news that Finn, along with “Late Show With David Letterman” writer Tom Ruprecht, will adapt Fargo Rock...

Washington Post Reviews The Craftsman (43rd and E... →
The menu at Craftsman in Minneapolis does not shout “Local!” The restaurant’s beet-and-goat cheese terrine, duck leg confit and potato gnocchi are the kind of dishes you could find at a contemporary American outpost … frankly, just about anywhere. But a tip from a trusted food friend steered me to the place last month, and all it took for me to change my mind about the...

edkohler: I improved my urban cred by losing my Redstone mayorship to @Bencredible today while picking up Chris & Robs on 42nd St E. And, I got a free t-shirt thanks to Brian’s shout-out. That shout-out may have been Brian’s biggest regret today since it reminded me to out him as mayor at Chris & Rob’s. Hold onto Longfellow Grill and Baker’s Wife while you can, man. I’m coming for...
