Minnesota Food Fun - Part 2

Life is just a spoon with a cherry...or something like that. 

Back to Minnesota and the fun food adventures of Alex, Lindsay, Ann and Al in August of 2010!

After we stuffed ourselves cinnamon-roll silly, we headed north on Hennepin Boulevard and found ourselves at the Walker Art Center and outdoor sculpture garden. I have included the iconic spoon and cherry sculpture and the Frank Gehry glass fish for their food relevancy ;).

Shoulda seen the one that got away!

Further on down Hennepin, we found this place:

Still don't know how to pronounce the name of this place

It takes too much effort to figure out how to say the name of the place, but it had been there over sixty years. If you have heard of Guy Fieri and the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives show on Food Network, then it will mean something to note that this Kramarczukusuak place was featured on an episode August 30th of this year. We didn't buy anything since we were still full from Isle of Bun fun, but when we walked by we saw a man tackling a six to eight inch tall pastrami on rye. They also had way too many sausages. 

Sausages? Yes. Lots of them. Man in red shirt seriously considering his options. 

The next thing that happened was pure genius. Al found us a perfectly poured Guinness on tap at Keegan's Irish Pub. 

I think it is time for a little nutrition break

Sorry, but if you are not a Guinness fan, you should be. The spectrum of brown, from deep dark to light cocoa cream, should be enough to win Guinness a beer beauty pageant, but the taste (so un-beer like) reminds me of chocolate malt. If you have a chance to get a real Guinness you will understand the whole "My Goodness, My Guinness," thing. 

Beer does not normally include little Irish dudes coming out the top of the foam.

Hilarious photo captions! Love it! It makes me want to try a Guiness sometime. Never had one, I don't think. Looks like a meal in itself! Awesome photos of the cherry & spoon & fish. Love you guys! xo
