LOCATION: Rochester, Minnesota
WEATHER: Cold again. High about 5. More light snow
After a leisurely morning of coffee and “CBS Sunday Morning”, we checked out a new Rochester restaurant called Porch and Cellar. It is a renovated train station. Super cute
But first, we had to brush the snow off the car….
Then, we bought our purchases to take to a Super Bowl party – smoked salmon, cream cheese and capers.
We watched our friend’s renter smoke ribs on the backyard BBQ. Only in Minnesota – in 0 temps!
Super Bowl day has almost become another American holiday. We did the American thing and went to a party. It was actually pretty fun. I feel a bit un-American as the only thing I’m really interested in is the commercials and half-time show. I’ve never liked or really understand the game of football. The house where we went for the party has a downstairs bar – a perfect set-up for a party
It was bitter cold outside. The host had to go outside and bring in the coolers of beer so they wouldn’t freeze. But, in typical Minnesota manner, one guy came dressed in shorts.
A tradition is to gamble on different scores for the game. We played, but didn’t win anything…
Monday morning – we just heard on the radio that 69,000 people are in line waiting to go through Minneapolis airport’s TSA! Glad we don’t fly out until later this week.
