Best of Hot Dish: July 5-9
Hot Dishers, we hope your week has been filled with sunshine, puppies, and ice cream treats. So much is going on around the Cities that it's hard to know what to do first: The Basilica Block Party is this weekend, St. Paul has the Dragon Festival, World Cup mania rages on, and a million other choices it seems. Before you head out, we have some stories from this week that we wouldn't want you to miss.
~Everyone loves themselves some sweet treats, right? Check out the delectables at the newly opened Patisserie 46, on the corner of awesomeness--46th and Grand--shared with Kings Wine Bar, and Cafe Ena. Take the tour.
~Has your cow costume just been gathering dust lately? Shake that baby out, fluff up the utters, and get ready to roll: Chick-fil-A is offering free meals to cow suited patrons, and even partial cow status will get you something in honor of Cow Appreciation Day.
~Wondering what to grill this weekend? Let resident grill-master Rob Barrett help stoke the fires of your imaginations and bellies with his easy-peasy marinated flank steak recipe.
~Ever wanted to know what the new Miss Minnesota, Kathryn Knutilla, likes to eat on pageant day? Knutilla answers this question and more in her interview with ace reporter Monica Wright.
Stay cool, be sweet, and have a truckload of fun this weekend!
