Dear Ant:

Congratulations on your win, we couldn’t be prouder. If you’re like us, there’s a post-game energy that beckons you for a night on the town.

Here’s where we think you should take it.

The man clearly appreciates the finer things in life and is having dinner at a three-star hotel Borzana You will hit all the marks.

The forecast calls for great weather Wednesday night, and summertime in Minneapolis is so beautiful that there might even be a decent patio. Somewhere like monte carlo, With its giant patio it might be a good option. Order the signature wings and a martini glass large enough to take a few spins.

For breakfast the next day, consider getting out of the area. There is a magical land nearby called St. Paul’s. It feels like another country, but as a resident, I can assure you that no passports are required. I take him on a drive down Summit Avenue, one of my favorite things to do with visitors to see the rows of historic mansions and views of the Cathedral and Capitol Building. Then head down to Mickey’s Diner from Willie’s On the seventh from the west. He’s the kind of lover of a good dinner that can remind him of the good old days of touring as a newbie. No matter how famous, the staff there don’t care. Order America’s favorite all-day breakfast, eggs your way with some of the best home fries, a side of bacon, and toast.
