What do most people think of when they hear “Minnesota”?
Well, according to this mostly accurate guide (everyone knows the home of the Juicy Lucy is The 5-8 Club, not Matt’s Bar—sheesh) from Movato, the answers include:
- Cold weather. (Yes, but only for seven months out of the year. Sometimes eight. It’s pretty much never snowed in July.).
- “The Land of 10,000 Lakes” (Per our license plates yes, but actually it’s closer to 12,000.)
- The Mall of America
- “Minnesota Nice”
- Mosquitoes (They breed in water, we have 12,000 lakes…you get the picture.)
- The movie “Fargo”
- Prince (RIP)
Surly Brewing helpfully adds skyways and black ice, along with hotdishes and pop (not casseroles and soda).
But Minnesota is increasing being recognized for something more: events.
