Gold Metal Park

Gold Metal Park After all the clucking I’ve been hearing about the rain, I thought it was a good time to show what good the rain has done on the #mnbucketlist. Stop by the Gold Metal Park Mill District in Minneapolis! It’s pretty wet but give it a few days and the colors will radiate.


BaciosOne of the most beautiful restaurants on the #mnbucketlist, is Bacio in Minnetonka. So many Italian and Mediterranean options, it’s impossible to pick just one. Definitely a great stop.


Pinstripes If you’re in the Edina area and need of a new spot, I highly recommend Pinstripes. Crossed it off the #mnbucketlist tonight. Beautiful atmosphere and divine dishes. It’s also great for bowling and bocceball. — at Pinstripes Resturant & Lawn Bowling.

Mickey’s Dining Car

Mickey's DinerMickeys Dining Car is a historical staple in Minnesota’s story. With it operating 24/7, 365, there’s no excuse not to stop by! It’s a Food Network favorite, perfect for the #mnbucketlist! Be prepared for a short wait but so worth it. 🙂

Kona Grill

Kona GrillScratching the Kona Grill off the #mnbucketlist tonight. I can’t believe I haven’t been there before! The food is awesome, especially the asparagus (go figure) salad and the tomato bisque. It’s beautiful inside, too. If you haven’t been, make a plan to – or come with me!

318 Cafe

318 CafeIf you are looking for a new hangout (in the Excelsior area), I would suggest trying the 318 Cafe (three eighteen cafe) if you haven’t already. It’s fun, trendy, have great live music and they are kitty corner from Excelsior Brewing.
