Breakups are variations on a theme, both in their causes and in their aftermath. The latter frequently involves a quick escape for the breaker and shocked immobility for the broken, followed by both halves of the erstwhile couple turning to heart-numbing vices like pints of ice cream on the couch or pints of cheap beer on the bar stool. The least the breaker can do, then, is choose a spot that facilitates the grieving process. The best place for all of the above is the busy intersection of Franklin and Hennepin avenues. Quick escape? The Bryant Avenue bike boulevard, I-94, Nice Ride rentals, multiple bus lines. Shocked immobility? Benches in the sun. Eating your feelings? Sebastian Joe's. Drinking them? Liquor Lyle's. All conveniently within street-crossing distance. And there's always busy traffic to run into if none of the above soothes the aching heart. (But really, beer should suffice.)
