  • Published: 12 September 2018

    Yo! the Twin Cities really brought it for this episode. But we're thinking about taking this thing international. Any thoughts on which city outside of the states we should hit next? And what should I eat there?

              My dad grew up in Minneapolis and ate a Juicy Lucy at Matt’s every day after high school in the 80s. Definitely my favorite, absolutely love the atmosphere there.

                        "Cheeersing" = "toasting". Cheers isn't a verb.

                                Held kitchen looks like an embodiment of gentrification especially considering it was probably the worst and twice as much as little ol Matt’s.
