December 1 Morning Roundup

Metro asks whether Minneapolis will ever get serious about street food, The Captain’s Chair gives Sam Adams Utopias 2009 an A+ (I say B, maybe B+ — if you factor in the $150 price tag per bottle), Dave’s BrewFarm eulogizes a Border Collie named Kodi, you’ve got until noon today to scoop up a ticket or two to Dara’s book party at Solera tomorrow, plus Dara previews an intriguing sounding upcoming bakery called Patisserie 46, and does anyone have any recipes for mudpuppies?
