Minneapolis, MN Food Challenge

Did you see  “Man vs Food” featured a little while back in Minneapolis,with guest appearance by Minnesota’s own Andrew Zimmern? It’s always great to see celebrities and television coverage in our own great state, but it always seems to come around to Lutefisk at some point, doesn’t it?

Minneapolis – St. Paul, MN Metro Area EZ Pass Rules

ez pass and express lane rules in mnSomeone recently made the news when he used a life-sized doll in his passenger side to appease the Express Lane rules. While carpool drivers and their passengers travel for free, an EZ Pass is required for anyone traveling solo in the Express Lane.

According to the MnPass website,  “Its (EZ Pass) purpose is to maintain traffic flow and alleviate congestion.”

Frequently Asked Questions about the EZ Pass, Express Lanes, and rules are found here.
