Strib's "Taste" section celebrating 40 years this week


The Star Tribune's "Taste" section has been around since 1969, and some cute little old lady has kept all of them. The woman's words will be featured in the paper this Thursday, the actual anniversary date, kicking off a weekend of quirky food-related events, including film noir, old food ads, birthday cake made by The Salty Tart's Michelle Gayer, and a cake contest. We're most looking forward to the Minneapolis City Hall bells playing a medley of food-related songs at noon on Thursday. We hope they play the Oscar Mayer weiner song. What are some other good ones? That old "Gimme a break" Kit-Kat one? What else what else?
