Municipal Liquor Woes and Morning Roundup

Some Minnesota cities are considering getting out of the liquor business, a  profile of Dean Vlahos (the restaurateur who Tom Petters helped put into bankruptcy), Mark Stutrud talks about Summit’s Saga IPA (here’s our recent tasting panel), Minnesota Monthly tackles urban farming, check out this crazy biscuit I made (recipe here), a preview of The Left Handed Cook, love for Brasa, a mostly rave review for Mona, Iggers on Butcher & the Boar, and three good local mint juleps (I’m personally a huge fan of the HauteDish version). Plus: Evan from the Well Fed Guide to Life podcast nearly chokes to death on some sourdough bread at Sun Street.
