Kalua pork sandwich at Lake & Irving. You’re going to want to try this.

Baby, it’s cold outside, so the Maker’s Mark bottles are all dressing up in tiny Christmas sweaters.
The man in the bug costume is Hide Tozawa, former personal chef for Tsuyoshi Nishioka and the future chef at the upcoming Kyatchi, making us great omakase on Halloween. That’s cheek of amberjack, scallop, tuna belly, some random nigiri, shrimp and deep-fried shrimp heads. Not pictured: lots of other sushi. Hide has made us omakase before and he is always brilliant. I can’t wait to belly up to the sushi bar at Kyatchi.
So this is what I saw on my morning ride around Lake Calhoun.Looks like this bus came inches from crashing through the Midtown Greenway. The two large tow trucks did not seem to be making much progress at moving the bus.
I’ve never been inside the Suburban World Theatre though I live just a block from it. Sad to see it is being turned into retail space. It seems like it would make a neat little concert and event venue, a la the Varsity Theatre.
This map of Minneapolis and St. Paul plots tweets from different mobile devices. Red is iPhone; green is Android. As Gruber points out, it shows a contrast in socio-economics. Splotches of red show both downtowns, the airport, Mall of America and Lyndale and Hennepin avenues in Uptown. Green meanwhile dots Nicollet and University avenues, and north Minneapolis.
I broke in the new Uptown Origami location last night with (among other things) this awesome salmon belly and fatty bluefin. It tasted like summer. Now it is snowing outside in May.
It’s Easter, but I had my sweets on Friday.
Beautiful shot of the moon rising between downtown Minneapolis’s tallest buildings.

Is this going to be like a Midtown Global Market for Northeast? I could get on board with that. We need more delicious food courts!
Bar snacks at Haute Dish? I would like all of these now please.
This spot in Calhoun Square certainly seems doomed, though bad food and overpriced drinks doesn’t help either.
I spent my fair share of time there when it opened, but happily migrated upstairs to Republic when that opened.
