Super Bowl LII is quickly approaching and many Minnesotans are racking their brains for a way to entertain out of town friends and family as they come into town for the game. Well, worry no more! All week I will be posting ideas to keep everyone entertained during Super Bowl week here in Minnesota.
What better way to kick things off than talking about brunch. Last summer I did my best to visit as many of the Twin Cities hottest brunch spots. The following are my suggestions for best bloodies, bites and bottomless mimosas; everything a sports fan needs to get things going!
Minnesota proves that it can roll with the culinary big dogs with this neighborhood gem. Hi-Lo provides unique and delicious dishes in a modern twist of a 1950’s diner. Their Hi-Tops are a foodies dream come true. Basically a a giant fried donut topped with everything from mac n’ cheese with ribs to baked apples and salted caramel, whats not to love?!
