Best Way to Impress a Date
Got your eye on a cute transplant, but don’t know how to stand out among the Minnesota nice boys and girls swimming in the local dating pool? Chances are, most people will have only seen the Aurora Borealis in pictures or in Balto, the 1995 cartoon about a hero Husky. So put your native instincts to the test, download a forecast app like Soft Serve News, and invite your date on a trip. Drive north on I-35 until you escape the clog and smog of the cities. In two hours, you’ll be in Hinckley, where sprawling farmland yields an uninhibited view of the night sky. Mercurial changes in atmosphere make catching the lights a little tricky. It’s hit or miss. But the mini-road trip provides an opportunity to get to know each other better, and the road is spotted with the possibility of Culver’s custard moments.
