    I need to check that place out. I have a growing hat collection these days. Stuff I would have thought odd 20 years ago. Mostly Coal and Block headwear. Two brands that make good stuff for not a lot of money. Also put some money down on Minneapolis Millers 1951 cap I bought over at BlackBlu at Selby/Dale in St. Paul. Great store mainly a lot of Selfedge Raw Denim (think old Levi's) and local brands like Redwing, Faribault Woolen Mills, Duluth Pack, etc.

    There is also the NorthernGrade this Sunday at James J. Hill.

    **Disclosure - they've since changed owners and are much better**

    The Brookside in Marine on St. Croix.

    As soon as I bit into it a smell lofted to my nose that resembled a deer carcase in July. I (unfortunately) chewed and swallowed anyway and looked down at what was in my hand. The meat was a color you never want to see in your burger. :puke

    My friend Bruce MacGregor and his two partners bought the Brookside nearly three years ago. In very short order, they turned the place around completely. The facility, the staff, the food - all were all greatly improved. Sadly, Bruce died in an accident on Jan. 30th of last year.

    RIP my friend. :devildog

    They did an amazing job. If I had more disposable income it would be a frequent hang out for me. I took the boys out there the other night and we had a great meal and a good time. I hesitated to mention it, for fear of hurting them, but it used to be pretty bad.

    RIP Bruce.

    It was a pretty good little burger dive a numbers of years ago, and then the PO just quit caring and it became a pretty krappy little dive. It's quite good now, a great asset to the little town of Marine oSC, and a worthwhile stop for those in the area. I still frequent the ice cream place more often though. :augie

    Yes he was. Saayyy...I think that this is the infamous water crossing that featured black algae--the low friction winner of the plant world. I only wish that I'd been videotaping. Hilarity ensued....
    Good times, indeed, :freaky

    I may check the movie out.

    Maybe Krevin can entertain me with an enthralling Mn1K story.

    I didn't watch it in the end. I didn't want to start part way through.

    I never did get an enthralling MN1K story from Krevin. :waysad
