Whenever I see an article about rent prices or housing prices in the US Minneapolis is always right above Denver

Denver's food scene is fine. It's not great, but it's not bad either.

What's so bad about it? I agree that it's pretty generic and that it may not be up to par with what it should be, but it's not like the food is gross or anything

I am not saying the food is gross. Just not a very good scene.

I mean really, when you think of Denver cuisine what pops in your head? Pot brownies?

At least with Minneapolis I think cheese curds, brats, etc.

Oh, I stand corrected! I don't know if Denver recently surpassed Minneapolis in COL, but I could've sworn the Twin cities had at least a higher rent

Fair enough. I by no means think that Denver's food scene is already great, but it's definitely improving.

Tough because they are pretty alike if you ask me.

But I guess Denver because it's closer to the west and it's warmer than Minneapolis is.
