City Pages' Best of the Twin Cities is here: Get the extras
We're mad about the Twin Cities. Why? Because it's 1961, and it's a great time to be living the American Dream.
Like the TV series Mad Men, this year's Best of the Twin Cities issue takes you back 50 years: Two new sports teams--the Twins and Vikings--are playing at Metropolitan Stadium. Dayton's is the king of retail. And at the metro's best restaurants you can enjoy a great steak and a fine cigar.
This year's issue includes 250 editor's picks, plus nearly 100 winners chosen by our readers. Of course, they didn't have the internet in 1961, but that hasn't stopped us from creating a slew of online extras. Here are details and links to the best of our Best-of issue, including information on how you could win a gift basket from City Pages with gifts from 2011 winners.
Watch this charming two minute video of our Best Of cover stars out on the town visiting several local landmarks:
