Hello Beautiful People and hello Monday!
How was your weekend? Mine was very low key in the best possible way. The snow is close to being a memory, the sun was out, and the people came out too! So nice to walk outside and not feel physical pain from the cold. I’m pleased.
I attended the kick-off event put on by The Scout Guide Minneapolis and The W Hotel – Foshay Tower for Minnesota Fashion Week on Thursday evening with a couple of girlfriends. We had a GREAT dinner at Borough in the North Loop beforehand. Plan to try it out! It’s great for dinner with friends and appropriate for a date night too. Also, a nice bar if you were looking for a happy hour spot in the North Loop. My food recommendations: I know it may sound frightening, but you simply must try the octopus! It was heavenly, and not at all what comes to mind (which for me was a weird texture and possibly sketchy). It was so good!! It contains flavors from yam, soy, daikon, cilantro, lime, & peanuts in the presentation. For my main dish, I had the scallops and let me tell you they are melt in your mouth – delish. It’s a big dish and they come atop red wine risotto, leek, root vegetable, grapes, elderflower, & salsify. You can check out the full menu, here.
