MN is Nice! - 9 Jan '08 19:47

Went travelling to the Twin Cities and a couple of surrounding places. MN is a cool state and a KL driver blends in like a good weave ;)

Hit up Barbette and D'Amico Cucino (both around the Hennepin Ave area). Great food and Alison Rae was performing that night at Barbette (check out her music if you're into folk/country). Couldn't leave the state without checking out the Mall of America and definitely tune into Kool 108 while you're there :)
