Re: Restaurant

Went to Smack Shack tonight. Best seafood I've had in MN. Not as good as the stuff you can get on the coasts, but this was as close as I've had. Granted, I don't usually get seafood in MN, I save that for when I travel places with better seafood, but I've had Oceanaire and McCormick & Schmicks, and...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

I am not a huge hops fan but I like a citrus IPA on a hot day. With the more limited options we have Fresh Squeezed is one I like and is a big upgrade from Summer Shandy IMO.

Re: Got Beer?

If summer ever comes I'll want to find a good "session beer" for when I'm out in the boat fishing. "If you are going be out on your boat, on a beach or attending a music festival and are going to probably have more than one or two [craft beers], you don’t want to put yourself in a predicament,” sai...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

I have looked at getting one of the poly shovels pictured above for pushing snow. Like Gator mentioned, I like how the plastic one flexes as some of our walkways are pavers. I also need to be able to scoop because I like to push to the edge of the driveway/sidewalk then angle the bank back so I don’...

Re: Got Beer?

Stopped by Eden Prairie Liquor this morning on my way to OC, and lo and behold, they had 1 4pk left of Peruvian Morning. :dance: Sometimes one just gets lucky on an impromptu stop. I guess I may have lucked out too. I read this post and walked into my store and saw they had the Peruvian. I was surp...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

Retiring form the Army after almost 24 years, and after great family debate, buying a house in Sartell and finally living the retirement dream (well, in June). I am happy my kids have had the opportunity to play hockey in Alaska and South Carolina, but am overboard excited about being in MN for hoc...

Re: GPL Donation-A-Thon 2018!!

I will ban him.... I just don’t get it. If you hate this place so much, why in the F do you take the time to login and post? I thought the same thing. I just hope all is well with him. Something really changed with him. I agree. We met up for a Twins vs Rangers game in TX and had talked on here qui...

Has anyone reminded Mark they'd still be a cute little DII club without a U grad to raise them up?
I think Malarkey Mark should ask some of the guys who played on the 1980 Olympic team what Coach Brooks thought about winning.
