I LOVE living in the Twin Cities. Here are just of my favorite things about where I live.

Restaurants to eat at (my current top five):

1. Parka

2. Bar La Grassa

3. Quang Restaurant

4. Ngon Bistro

5. Any place in the Midtown Global Market

Things to do in the winter

1. Take a brewery tour. (Summit, Surly, Fulton)

The girls!

2. Drink vodka at Moscow on the Hill

3. Head to Northeast Minneapolis for a night of kareoke and dancing. Start at the Otter Saloon and end the night at the Front Cafe

4. Get pampered all day at the Day Spa or Spalon Montage

5. Take a spin class at Revolution Cycle and Fitness or a hot yoga class at The Yoga Pioneers!

Runner up: spend the day at the Mall of America. It’s really not that bad if you set your expectations appropriately.


Things to do in the summer

1. Take a run or walk or bike ride on one of the many trails/paths around one of our lakes or along the river

2. Visit Minnehaha Falls and eat at Sea Salt

I can't wait until they look like this again.

3. Go to a baseball game! Head to a Twins or Saints game. Both totally different experiences.


Target Field.

4. Go to an outdoor concert/festival like Rock the Garden or the Basilica Block Party —  there are so many to choose from.

5. Shop at one of the many local farmers markets

Runner up: Drink on a patio. I especially love the W.A. Frost, Longfellow Grill and Sweeney’s patios.
