Local food gift ideas from Dara, and more from the folks at 77 Square in Madison (and here’s our big ol’ gift guide, pictured above). The MSP Mag take on The Kenwood (here’s our rave) and the new incarnation of Figlio. A brilliantly thorough story in the Growler on the legal ins and outs of starting a brewery. 40(!) Madison sandwiches to eat before you die (anyone want to write the Minneapolis-St. Paul version for us?). A profile of Joseph’s Mexican and Lebanese Market in St. Paul. City Pages reviews the Beacon Public House hotel gastropub (which you may remember from Stephanie March’s public flogging). And the Well Fed Guide to Life heads out to Union.
