Per commentors ImOnlyLurking and GBear:
Best kept secret on Balloon Juice is that there’s a Twin Cities meetup at Shamrocks Grille at 995 West 7th Street in St. Paul at 5:00pm. So far there are two of us confirmed to be there…
It’s been popping up in various threads for the last few days but it appears to be a sleeper. Be part of a select few and have one of the best burgers in town.
If anyone is coming over from Minneapolis, avoid taking 94 to Snelling or Lexington. State fair traffic and the bridge closure at Hamline will have those roads snarled up. Best to come in from the south (either via Fort Snelling or the Ford Bridge) instead.
Shamrocks is near the corner of Randolph Ave. and West 7th St.near the old Schmidt Brewery.
ETA: Sorry, Kay — I scheduled this post during the wee hours and didn’t get back to the blog until now!
