Yes, it is the beginning of festival season and here at The Hot Dish we plan to give you the scoop on all the festivities.
While Nevada may think they are all cool because they have their "Las
Vegas" check us out-- here in Minnesota have our Vergas and they have
a Maple Syrup Fest. On Saturday, April 4th you can stuff yourself with a syrup-topped breakfast and then burn it off at the Flapjack 5K run/walk at said fest. The drive from the TC to Vergas clocks in at three-plus hours, so it's rather long for a one-day road trip. But how about making a inexpensive vacay: cheap motel room, dinner at a supper club, and lots 'o maple syrup for you and your friends? And if you can't make it this month, Vergas' Looney Daze is coming up in August. What happens in Vergas stays in Vergas.
