Doughnut, Interrupted

Call it doughnutgate or doughnexit: 2005 saw Minnesota say goodbye to Dunkin’ Donuts. That year, the Massachusetts-based company swept up the last of its sugared crumbs and sold its lone Austin, MN franchise, leaving those who craved their Dunkin’ fix with one option: roadtrip.

Biking for Bites

Some sights in Minneapolis are best seen from a bike, and with its extensive system of paved paths, cyclists of any experience level can cover a lot of ground in a day in Minneapolis. Whether you want to make it a full day on the Chain of Lakes, or just want to take a quick jaunt down the Midtown Greenway, fuel up at these casual Southside pit stops along your bike route.

The concept of farm-to-table is a great idea. It emphasizes alternatives to industrialized, processed foods, and attempts to strengthen local economies and food systems by directly supporting farmers.

As it stands today, “farm-to-table” is just a buzz phrase, largely stripped of any meaning it once had.
