    Hey guys! I just found out that my work is going to have me staying in Minneapolis for the next month or so. Any tips on what to do, see, eat, drink, etc. while I’m there?

    I’ll be there from Tuesday, November 15th through the 15th of December (including Thanksgiving unfortunately).

    MSP is a great area.

    For food, make reservations for Piccolo – http://piccolompls.com/[/url]

    You could ask Minneapolisite (formally known as Columbusite) – he seemed to know a lot of stuff. ;D

    Murray’s Steakhouse, if you’re on a per-diem you’ll be dipping into your pocket a bit, but it’s worth it.

    I would check out http://heavytable.com/ for food information.

    The Heavy Table is a Twin Cities-based magazine passionately telling the stories of food and drink — from roots to table — in the Upper Midwest.

    We are interested in small, neighborhood restaurants; ethnic eateries with a story to tell; great home cooking; Upper Midwestern culinary traditions; stuff that’s hilarious; recipes that work; recipes that fail spectacularly; current events; local food; heirloom food; and people at all levels of the food creation, preparation, distribution and consumption chain.

    Good start guys!

    Not sure what my expense account will be, but you can bet it will be tiny. That said, keep coming with the great ideas!

    There is a large Thai population oddly and there are a ton of killer thai restaurants.

    Awesome! Thanks! I was literally just telling my coworker down here in Chillicothe that he needs to bring his wife up to Columbus for one of your tours.

    Thanks for the tip Snarf, anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucka for good Thai.

    I’ll try to be a diligent and post any great finds I make while I’m up there.

    Just read http://minneapolisite.wordpress.com/

    Seems like he is a pretty amazing urbanophile. Anyone have access to his Columbus blog?

    And Somalians. Lots of Somalians. Worst drivers ever. Be careful driving up there!

    All that cold weather, you should seek out Kramarczuk Sausage Company for tasty and fattening Polish and Ukrainian food. Nothing like Eastern European after the leaves have fallen.

    Kramarczuk Sausage Co (Minneapolis, MN)

    Offbeateats lists a few others worth trying, like Maria’s – Colombian and Venezuelan cuisine with killer breakfasts, and Hell’s Kitchen with tasty peanut butter toast.

    I would definitely visit their Midtown Global Market (like our North Market). While there, you need to try some lutefisk at some of the other Scandinavian eats at Cafe Finspang.

    Thanks Jason. I figured you’d come up with some good suggestions! I think I’ll pass on the lutefisk though, I’ve had it before and whew, nasty stuff!

    I wondered what happened to Columbusite. He would be a great resource in the Twin Cities region, as he made his way all around Columbus, and visited a lot of local restaurants and bars.

    leftovers: You can find the former “Columbusite” on urbanohio.com. Some of his Columbus neighborhoods photos can be found there. Go to the forum topic City Photos-Ohio, on page 5, Keith M.’s photo thread is there. I must say I really enjoyed his Columbus photos. His Minneapolis photo threads can be found on urbanohio as well.
