Originally published January 2018

I was on KSTP-TV’s Twin Cities Live with three Minneapolis restaurants with fantastic date night dinner deals.

Note: Kafe 421 closed since this segment aired. They still offer catering services.

Featured restaurants:

  • Sunday nights
  • Four-course meal for $25/person
  • Reservations recommended but not required

Bryant-Lake Bowl, Minneapolis

  • Monday nights, 6 p.m. – midnight
  • Two entrees, bottle of wine or two beers each and one round of bowling for $28/couple

Cheapest pop at the Minnesota State Fair

Sometimes you just want a nice cold Coca-Cola to wash down the cheese curds you’ve inhaled at the Minnesota State Fair. Before you head out the Great Minnesota Get Together, plan ahead so you can get a deal on pop (or soda, whatever you want to call it).

Note: this television segment aired in 2016 and the information presented is based off of 2016 prices. Information will be updated once the 2017 Minnesota State Fair starts.

The 2017 Minnesota State Fair runs Thursday, August 24-Monday, September 4.
