12.24pm, Saturday 25th Feb, South 6th Street, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Just about to head out to the Yalumba vs The Old World red wine tasting lunch, but this a quick one for Robin, who owns and runs our new distributor in Chillyville – my new name for Minneapolis! I know it’s not been much of a winter by local standards – this time last year they’d had 9 feet of snow, this year only a few inches! – but I’m very grateful all the same. It’s 20 degrees F out there in the bright sunshine, which is MINUS 6 degrees C … and I’m getting all of those minus bits!
But I headed out for breakfast a few doors down the road at Ike’s Cocktail Bar with their famous brunch. You start with a “gooey caramel cinnamon roll the size of your head”, but I went with two poached soft runny eggs and toast that I buttered myself and cut into ‘soldiers’ or strips – to dip in the egg. So here you go Robin – this is what Dippy Eggs & Soldiers look like. All I needed was some Vegemite on the soldiers and it would have been the breakfast choice of champions.
Here’s the sticky bun I didn’t eat………
