We headed back to Minneapolis on Saturday and stayed at my friends Rico and Sandy's place. Rico was barbecuing ribs in his style. I know he smokes them for awhile and grills them at the end to finish them but I am not sure what else he might do inbetween. Maybe I don't want to know. But they are delicious. I think Sandy makes the barbecue sauce. I know she made the date bread that the Mysterious Chinese Woman loves so much.
On Sunday we headed out for a bit of mischief and made our first stop Floyd's where we had our breakfasts in a glass.
Breakfast Of Champions
Our ultimate destination was Da Boars, but first we had to make a little stop for a couple of beers and a chance for Sandy to fund our day's expedition.
Just Like A Bank
Well, not on this day. Sandy is a pull-tab maven, or so she says. And, based upon the times I have been with her, she does win more than she loses. But, alas, we had no luck today.
It might not look like much from outside, but this is one kickass place. And, being that this was game day, they had all kinds of special stuff. Of course this is Viking country and we were playing their arch-enemies, the hated Green Bay Packers. There are still mixed emotions about Favre around here. I should have worn my Jets Favre jersey just to see the reaction.
Obviously Vikings Fans
The first thing I had to do was hit the bathroom. Hey, I had those beers at the American Legion.
Now, Which Door?
Needless to say, I was a bit intrigued by the poster above the urinals.
Sounds Like A Fun Day
I admit I was a bit intriqued by the Green Bay Cheerleaders! thing. But that became clear a little bit later in the day.
There was a lot going on here so I will finish up tomorrow. But I will leave you this picture of the bartender, Shelly who, along with her husband Jeff, owns of the place.
Shelly, Another Beauty With Brains
Had to laugh about the Knicks having to postpone their game last night because when they were cleaning out abestos-related materials (whatever they are) from the attic above the arena, debris of some sort fell through the ceiling onto where they were installing the court. They were installing the court above the ice (the Rangers play here too).
