The Strib looks at the recent attention given to Minneapolis in media outlets like the Wall Street Journal and Buzzfeed. The Buzzfeed list is rather meh (although I’ve experienced #7—the awkward talk with your parents after passing by Sex World), but the WSJ piece is a good travelogue for a weekend in the city. Minneapolis is experiencing a bit of urban renewal as the economy recovers, so the press comes at a good time. Like a lot of longtime residents, I often take the city for granted. So an outsider’s perspective helps remind me that I’m lucky to be here.
And not to worry, people of St. Paul. I’m sure someone will do a write-up on whatever it is you do in your quaint little hamlet.
