LearningLife instructor and author of John Dillinger Slept Here Paul Maccabee looks at infamy and edibles in Twin Cities history
Snag a slice of pizza at Savoy; take flight with a craft beer or two at the Happy Gnome; enjoy the local walleye at Tavern on Grand; order your steak still mooing at Kincaid's; reserve a table for fine dining at W.A. Frost's... No matter what your culinary curiosity asks for, chances are, you can find it in St. Paul.
And, of course, being the metropolitan area that it is, there's always a chance for a celebrity sighting or two when you are out and about. Maybe you'll end up having a drink next to Lady Gaga at the Turf Club, or catch a glimpse of hometown hero and Twins catcher Joe Mauer as he chows down on a Juicy Lucy at the Nook in Highland Park.
While it sometimes gets short shrift compared to its larger twin on the other side of the river, as it turns out, the Capital City is just as "happening," and has long been a hangout for the rich and famous...or, in some cases, infamous.
