D is originally from the Minneapolis area and we love to head down for a variety of reasons, typically Viking match ups. But this particular trip was for a very special celebration-the marriage of a beautiful niece. We had a bit of a window before we all had to get gussied up for the ceremony and #1 son had found Joe Senser’s Sports Theater the night before. I am often skeptical when a place’s main claim to fame is that it is owned by a football player. But Joe was a Viking and since I acquired purple blood through marriage I was willing to give it a try.
I didn’t get much conversation out of my family of diners because their eyes were fixed on various screens -the start of the French open, baseball updates and one devoted to video bloopers.
But when the food came it was just what the doctor ordered and so I was content.
D enjoyed this Cobb Salad which took him forever to eat.
The Frenchman: this combo special of a burger, waffle fries AND boneless chicken wings.
Daughter #2 went with the chicken wrap that was so huge, Daughter #1 ate the second half on the car ride home the next day.
For me? They had me at artichokes….artichoke and chicken flat-bread.
