Welcome to Minnesota – Land Of 10,000 Lakes

7.47am, South 6th Street, Downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

Just a quick good morning, folks – I wanted to let you know that I’ll be very safe here in Minneapolis … because I’m living in a bank for the next four days! Yep, the Westin Hotel Minneapolis used to be The Farmers And Mechanics Bank – built in beautiful Art Deco style back in 1941.

They’ve got a magnificent Wine Vault downstairs that’s the main original money vault. See for yourself



OK – have to make early tracks because we’re off to do a Viognier Breakfast seminar with the folks from the Blue Plate restaurant group at one of their hotspots: Scusi.

See ya later in the day!

PS it snowed again last night – very pleased I bought those boots back in New York!
