Today starts Coffee News Cafe and Vine Park Brewing Company’s “tasting trials” where, using Instant Runoff Voting (IRV), patrons vote for their favorite items. At Coffee News Cafe, they’re testing new omelets — and the winner stays on the menu. At Vine Park Brewing, they’re testing brews. Voting ends in a couple weeks, then other St. Paul restaurants and bars will begin tasting trials. It’s a tasty way to practice IRV voting, which is how Minneapolis residents will vote on election day. St. Paul residents vote on whether or not to implement IRV on Nov. 3.
