A couple months ago, I discovered a ‘secret’ stairway next to the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis. Walking down 75 steps or so, you’re rewarded with a serene view from the banks of the Mississippi. (See a rooftop view from the Mill City Museum and a view at night.)
Peter’s Grill has been a Minneapolis institution since it opened in 1914 with homemade food, large portions, and affordable meals. Don’t forget to grab a slice of green apple pie!
Barney the mule, from the farm, is wondering if I have any treats. Like an apple wafer or two. And, of course, I do.
Ever gone to dinner or the bar with friends, and everyone’s nose is buried in their smartphones? They’re checking in on Foursquare, updating Facebook, tweeting, taking Instagram photos, reading reviews on Yelp, or texting people who haven’t gotten to the restaurant or bar yet. (I’m guilty, for sure.)
Next time, play the “phone stack” game. Everyone’s phones get stacked face down on the table. Anyone who reaches to answer their phone during dinner (if it’s not an emergency) has to pay part of the tab!
