Mural from Victor’s 1959 Cafe in Minneapolis. Some warm Cuban food might be just what this Minnesota winter needs.

Tettegouche State Park, on Minnesota’s north shore of Lake Superior. Beautiful in every season, but winter is my favorite.

Judy Garland hopped on the yellow brick road to stardom in her hometown of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, where she entered the world as Frances Gumm. The Judy Garland Museum includes her childhood home and an adjoining building filled with sweet and sad memories of her troubled life. There’s a children’s museum next door, too, which makes sense in a Wizard of Oz context, but is a little unsettling when reflecting on her substance abuse and tragic death. Oh, well, it’s still a delightful little museum, and Grand Rapids is a great starting point for some Iron Range adventures.

The morning after another Vikings playoff loss. With our hearts broken so many times, when will we learn that the only Viking worth loving is Big Ole in Alexandria, Minnesota?
