You should try 'Nduja. But then again, just because I have first-hand experience in having tasted both salami and 'nduja does not make me right. It's just different and based on personal preference.

The waitress at the bar we were at rolled her eyes and said I know, I deal with it everyday coming to work. She had a car, I actually rode in it, but she said the cost was too high driving into the city center.

I did take my mom on a guided tour for her birthday and I had a blast even though I was the youngest by 20-30 years. All my other trips I was in my mid 20ís to early 30ís with my peers. We partied more with the locals than most could ever imagine. Iíve also visited friends that worked for me and they took all around as well, so I think I might just a bit more familiar than most.

And for the record saying your comments are based on first hand experience doesnít mean theyíre anymore right than anyone Iíve known. Just different.
Point taken.

Huh? Itís one of the best run metros in the country by most metrics. The biggest problem MPLS has is the huge racial achievement gap.

MSP has a tier 1 QOL. It's good in almost every measurable statistic.

I will say, I have never found to be great or stand-out in any one way. I'm not sure it's the gold standard, though a lot of cities could certainly follow the MSP model.
