>> Holy curritos, did you hear that Vellee Deli is opening its skyway shop on Monday? How many kicks are you going to get on your dragon quesadilla?
>> If you lived in the WestHen or the WeSub, you might remember an old supper club on Long Lake that has stood there since the 1950s. Well, though it went dark as Billy's Lighthouse nine years ago, it's coming back as Birch's on the Lake Brewhouse and Supperclub. And yes, it's a brewery.
>> Dogwood Coffee guy Greg Hoyt has bought out co-owners/founders Steve Horton and Barbara Shaterian from Rustica Bakery. It sounds like they'd love a break, which, after more than a decade of baker's hours, they richly deserve.
>> Cut yourself a slice of summer memory by heading out to the Arboretum for a little Mill City Farmers Market pop-up this Saturday. Meats, cheeses, eggs, some produce, flora, fauna, wish you were here.
>> How have you gotten this far through the dirge without mastering Korean cuisine? The spice! The heat! The bibimbap! You can still bone up at Cook's of Crocus Hill where the kimchi will be flowing on Friday night!
>> Hop on the bus, gus. There are still spots open for the Bitter Minnesota craft brewery tasting tours happening this weekend. Your $75/$65 ticket gets you three hours at local breweries, some beers, some snacks, and a ride. Different days get different brew stops.
>> I am ALL IN for the Epic Ramen Feast happening on March 22 at ZenBox Izakaya. Dinner on the Farm is hosting the night (now THIS is a farm I will visit in winter) with Easy & Oskey cocktails, so there will be some libational support for your ramen slurping situation.
