Bring On The Brunch : Icehouse

A few months ago after visiting Icehouse for dinner I couldn’t wait to go back again to try out their amazing brunch menu. I finally got my chance last weekend when my friend Ashley asked where our group should go for brunch. I couldn’t text back fast enough.My friends usually are pretty trusting when I suggest a new place for us to try and I … Continue reading Bring On The Brunch : Icehouse

Bring On The Brunch! Union Rooftop

This weekend Sam and I finally made our way to Minneapolis for brunch. Its never a far drive for us but when we discuss where we want to go on a Sunday morning Minneapolis sounds like its on the other side of the world. I decided to take the initiative and made a reservation for The Union Rooftop’s Sunday Brunch. I have heard a lot … Continue reading Bring On The Brunch! Union Rooftop

Red Schoolhouse Wines

It’s no secret amongst my friends that I never like their boyfriends…or at least I’m slow to warm up to them. This past Memorial Day Weekend I went to Wisconsin to visit my Lifey (aka best friend) Megan and her fiancé Tom. Tom has slowly but surely been winning me over the past year but he totally took the cake during this visit. Tom was tasked … Continue reading Red Schoolhouse Wines

I have slowly but surely been working away at crossing restaurants off my list. Last year I started a little notebook where I could jot down ideas for Hunkiedorie.net After time I realized that this notebook really became a list of all the local hotspots I wanted to visit. I have finally started to whittle away at the list and have had the best time. … Continue reading Muddy Waters

Pourhouse

Last night a few of the girls and I headed Downtown Minneapolis to The Pourhouse, one of my new favorite bars. I was first introduced to The Pourhouse this past summer when I went with some friends for a birthday party. The Pourhouse is such a fun and vibrant venue. I contribute this mainly to the amazing live music showcasing today’s pop music and 80’s rock … Continue reading Pourhouse

Betty Danger’s Country Club

The other night I had a bridesmaid dress fitting  at Flutter Boutique in Uptown with my college roommates Ashley & Danielle. We decided to go out afterwards for some drinks and maybe a bite to eat. We knew we didn’t want to try and find somewhere in uptown since parking is always such a hassle. Ashley suggested we go to Betty Danger’s Country Club in … Continue reading Betty Danger’s Country Club

The Tavern On Grand

Recently my boyfriend Sam introduced me to one of his favorite restaurants. The Tavern On Grand is located right on Grand Ave. in Saint Paul. Take a moment and close your eyes, picture what represents Minnesota in your mind. Think of every icon, stereotype or memory. When you walk into The Tavern On Grand that is exactly what you get. The inside feels like a … Continue reading The Tavern On Grand
