Yesterday we took the girls out on the town for the last day of the long weekend. First stop was brunch at Ike’s on Sixth Street in downtown Minneapolis (whatever happened to their website at ilikeikes.com?). The burgers and fries at Ike’s have long been one of my favorites, so I was excited to try the brunch.
Wow. They started off by bringing out a cinnamon pecan roll “as big as your head.” Not quite as large as my big head, but definitely as big as the girls. Then we got to order our eggs (Thing 1 did the make-your-own omelet bar). While we waited for the eggs, our server brought a platter with hash browns, sausages, smoked bacon strips and stacks of buttermilk pancakes. Brunch wrapped up with four hot, fresh chocolate chip cookies. Nicely done and the place was packed (glad I called ahead).
After eating, it was off to visit the Mill City Museum again. After re-visiting the very cool Flour Tower, we headed back to the first floor to watch Kevin Kling’s Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat movie. These two features might just be the most entertaining history exhibits the MHS has ever produced. Well done!
After the movie, we walked the girls over to the new Guthrie so they could check it out for the first time. This also happened to be the last day of performances for Pen and our timing was perfect–our friend Phil Callen was just finishing and we got to say hi after the 1pm show.Originally published by DK on November 26, 2007 at 2:00 am
