    Week 1 – Eating at a Dinkytown Landmark 

    Previously, I started adventuring by eating at Matt’s Bar, the Minneapolis landmark, to try their famous Jucy Lucy.  So this year, I began by going to the Dinkytown neighborhood in the University of Minnesota to, for the first time, eat at Al’s Breakfast.

    I started my adventure by arriving here at 6:05 a.m.  For those that don’t know, Al’s Breakfast, which was featured on the Diners Drive-Ins and Dives TV show on the Food Network, is notorious for long lines.  The reason why is that they only are open for breakfast..and there are only fourteen stools in the entire restaurant.  It is one counter top.

    Week 1 – Jucy Lucy 

    For those not sure what a Jucy Lucy is, it is basically a cheeseburger with the cheese cooked on the inside of the hamburguer.  They were created at Matt’s Bar in south Minneapolis.  I have always wanted to original, so tonight, my friends and I set out to have one.

    Check out this line.  It extended outside.  Now, to many a line that reaches outside a building may not seem extraordinary.  But in Minnesota, that means something!  The air temperature was -4 degress fahrenheit, -12 with wind chill!  It was that cold, and yet people were waiting outside for the food.

    Man, look at that cheese drip.  It was amazing.  One of the best burgers I have ever had.

    Until next time, be easy, space cowboy.

      In San Francisco, there is a vegan juice bar called Juicy Lucy that I used to go to a lot. Maybe it’s the same owner!
