There's two sides to everyone: the side that is presented to everyone, and then the side that only a few people will take the time to search and find.

This place. This #cheeseboard.
This is #TheWedgeAndWheel in #Stillwater. They have an amazing selection of hard-to-find, imported, or artisan #cheese, among other tasty nibbles, sandwiches, and a nice #wine selection. Also, nice #tulips. It's a great place to stop by for some sustenance after an afternoon of shopping, or before heading north to a state park or the Franconia Sculpture Park for a hike. ...I apparently also like to eat a lot of #duck when I can 😂
I finally heeded a recommendation a few weeks ago and popped into #DomacinWineBar in #Stillwater for dinner while I was over that way. I was thoroughly impressed on several counts-- their ability to fit an impromptu single diner into their schedule (I would definitely recommend reservations for two or more people), their incredible wine list, and their cuisine execution-- my #duckbreast was absolutely perfect. My server started out a little reserved, but after she realized I was going to be an easy customer, warmed up. I in turn will highly recommend making a stop in yourself-- word to the wise, however, the menu on their website is definitely out-of-date.
What I ate: Duck breast with #ricotta #spaetzle and shaved #brusselsprouts, #steaktartare in great #baguette toasts, and the #vanilla #pannacotta for dessert, drank with two glasses of #montapulciano #wine that's been difficult for me to find since returning from Italy!
Guys. The #friedchickensandwich at @eatstsocial is legit the best I ever had the pleasure of having. I was already day-dreaming and craving it AGAIN three days later-- the tangy #bleucheese, the perfectly balanced crunch of the fried batter, the tenderness and moistness of the HUGE chicken breast inside, the creeping heat of the #CryBabyCraigs #hotsauce #aioli, the acid snap from the #pickles, and the perfect veg and shoestring fries. I'm in love 😍
The #MCAD campus is so beautiful it sometimes makes me sad I discovered it AFTER graduating college.
Happiest of Sunday’s to you!
Just want to say how thankful I am for life, coffee and great people! I don’t think I can express enough how much I love Minneapolis & the community we create here!

When I first moved to #Minneapolis nearly five years ago, one of the biggest draws for me was going to the #MinneapolisInstituteOfArt. I was BROKE but looking for things to do and ways to get out more, so my roommate and I would meet at the #MIA Thursday nights after work, when they were open until 9 PM. We'd wander around, sometimes I'd sketch, and then we'd usually round out the night with a drink or a bite somewhere on Eat Street. It was such a great cheap night's entertainment, and I've always been so impressed with the collection at the #museum that I refer to it as a "mini Met." But between both having moved to different places and the craziness that comes with different jobs, it's been awhile since we last found ourselves at the MIA. A few Fridays ago, we picked up the old routine in order to catch the "Horse Power" exhibit that was closing shortly. What ended up impressing us most about the new work and curation they've done was the upgrade to this French period room-- the soundtrack and #lighting change slowly through what a day and a night would have felt like during the room's heyday. From cocks crowing and church bells pealing during pink sunrise to the sound of doors opening, boots stomping across floorboards, fire crackling, cards shuffling and candles winking on and off, it's a spellbinding experience for more senses than you may be used to using at the usual fine art museum. Way to make patrons stretch their imaginations! (You'll probably get the most out of it if you're fluent in French and can follow the dialogue; I'm not, so I'm just guessing.)
One of the things I miss most during the winter is fires. I grew up in a house with a fireplace, and curling up on the floor in front of it with a book was one of my favorite wintertime activities (thanks for chopping all that wood, Dad!). At my previous residence, backyard bonfires were a thing. Now, I can't even have a small barbecue on the balcony of my apartment, let alone a fire pit. Such are the sacrifices for being able to have your own place in the city, I guess. So I live for circumstances when I get to be back around a fire, whether a bonfire at a friend's house or outdoor event, a cooking fire while camping up north, or even this gorgeous fake "fire" in one of the period rooms at the #MinneapolisInstituteOfArt achieved solely through the use of remarkable lighting and an audio track of wood popping and real fire crackling. The human draw to a fire is such a primordial feeling, it's hard to not miss it!

You've also got to love the gaudy gilded "sea horses" that would have held the wood in.

Well St. Paul, you sure didn't disappoint. 🍀 green beer, awesome music and the absolute BEST people. I think when it comes to my life and the people in it, I found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. 🍀🌈 I could complain about Minnesota living a lot, but yesterday, it was one VERY happy place to call home. ·

Coffee because unpacking, Irish Whiskey because St. Patrick’s Day. A good omen for a new adventure.

“Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough
Gleams that untravelled world, whose margin fades
For ever and for ever when I move.
How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
To rust unburnished, not to shine in use!
As though to breathe were life!”
- Lord Alfred Tennyson, “Ulysses”.
