    Forgot to mention Cossetta’s Market as well.

    Really convenient and enjoyed by many there.

    Next time you're at cosettas, do yourself a favor and go upstairs to Luis' Ristorante and get the lasagna. Whew, I am drooling over my keyboard just typing it.

    I had a great Italian sub there. It was huge for under $13.00. I ended up splitting it with a friend (Hi Mike).

    Handsome Hog was great for brunch. Spoon and Stable was OK, but definetely overrated given the $ IMO.

    I felt like I got a good insight into food and drink while in town. I had a lobster roll at Smack Shack that was pretty legit, and met a dude who told me about the St. Paul Saints, which was perfect before seeing the show merch.  Also went to Matt's Bar for a Jucy Lucy, WA Frost & Co., St. Paul Grill where I learned about wild rice soup, Von Hanson jerky, and also made it out to the state fair for Pronto Pops and Mouth Trap cheese curds.  Add in the plethora of craft beers I had, I would say it's a good thing I walked miles each day.

    You certainly did it right.  Those are all top notch places!

    Still have never been upstairs to Louis’ but I’ll definitely be craving lasagna during the winter. 

    S&S is definitely overrated. It just has “celebrity” chef status. Nice space though. 

    I sure hope there’s more double shows in Saint Paul but I’ll settle for one if it doesn’t take a decade.

    I would as well. The people at the venue were so nice. They let those of us in line come inside to use the bathroom, etc. There were plenty of hotels and food within walking distance. Waiting in the GA line there was a breeze.

    Might have been the nicest arena staff I've encountered from letting GA line holders use the bathroom right when the building opened up for business at 7 am to directing people smoothly from one side of the street to the other waiting for GA.

    Come back to MN - we're progressive!   No stupid legislation about bathroom genders here.

    St. Paul makes history after certification of election results.  With the certification of the results, St. Paul's city council is made up entirely of women. The majority are also women of color.
