Best of Hot Dish: June 14-18, 2010
Enjoy your garden this weekend.
Top of the day, y'all. This is one of those weekends where it is just embarrassing how many fun things we have the chance to do. Don't you feel bad for people who don't live here? The Hot Dish writers hope that you have the lowdown on what's going around town, and here is a recap of some of our favorite stories of the week:
~There has been much controversy Uptown, as the discussion turns to "did they, or did they not, have a rooftop minimum charge,?" as Stella's Rooftop Patio-Gate raged on, and, we hope, resolved. Coincidentally, all this hoo-haw took place right before the roof top patio at Uptown Cafeteria and Support Group opened across the street, starting the "patio wars." Or just blow them both off and eat at the Uptown Market instead.
~Rachel Hutton shares her picks for the top 5 places to eat on Father's Day.
~None other than the most uptight white lady in the world, Martha Stewart, give a shout out to Lou's Fish Smoke House in Two Harbors.
~Minneapolis Mayor, R.T. Rybak, talks to Hot Dish about his new program, Homegrown Minneapolis, promoting local foods, healthy eating habits, and community involvement.
~Our resident cooking dad, Rob Barrett, takes us on the next stop of his BBQ tour with Market Bar-B-Que.
Here's some love to all the dads out there! Have a great weekend. *Hugs*
