Date.... ordering seafood?

I had to check the date this was posted to see if it was from April 1st.

This sounds like something you read in one of those stupid How To Get a Man books.

Seriously? Be yourself. Order whatever you want.

Nelson's ice cream opening on Snelling

I've not been, but aren't they known for quantity? If I'm offbase, please say so.

Brunch in Burnsville?

The Sunday morning wait at Jensen's can be brutal.

I like Porter Creek but they don't open until 11. The only time I was there at open they had plenty of tables available.

For something less mainstream, Tawakal serves breakfast.

Would you eat sans bathroom?

It wouldn't occur to me to check if a restaurant has a bathroom; I would just assume it did.

Yesterday I had a nice lunch at a new to me restaurant. The bathrooms were down some fairly steep stairs. (The building is probably 100 years old.) To people with certain disabilities, this would be the same thing as no bathrooms. Really unfortunate situation.

Restaurant Club Suggestions

I love The Rookery.

It is fun and lively and bordering on rowdy at times. And the music is very loud. You probably won't be able to converse very well with anyone other the person sitting beside you.

They do not take reservations. They have several tables for 10 but you could wait a while if you all want to sit together.

Full sheet pans for home oven use?

I got a great deal on a gently used one at a church sale. The trouble is that it doesn't fit in my oven.

Indy, your link shows a couple of styles. Which one are you endorsing?

Visiting Champlin in May

An hour drive will get you anywhere in the metro area. $25 per person will preclude some of the best restaurants in the cities but there is still a lot to choose from.

Dinner - 128 Cafe in Saint Paul. He's doing some amazing things there. The menu changes frequently but there is always a good variety (as you might need for a family). It's a hidden gem so it's likely your people haven't been there. Be sure to make a reservation; it's small.

Lunch - Tilia in Minneapolis. They don't take reservations so don't go at noon if your group is large. They have the same menu for lunch & dinner but it's much less crowded at lunchtime.

Not only do they have a good product but I appreciate what they are doing. They've cut out the middle man. Carlos lives here and imports directly.

You might try asking your gas company too. Mine has been helpful for this type of thing.

Ikea has them. Some of the long gone department stores had them too. I worked at a business that had one for employees only.

Palm Restaurant french press

Palm Cookware is the house brand of TJ Maxx. It is sold in their stores which include HomeGoods and Marshall's also. It's not the highest quality but that doesn't mean it's unsafe.

Try TJ Maxx website. They provide contact info.

Yes. Other than institutions and some large companies, Ikea comes to mind.

How to buy 50 teacups on the cheap?

I see them all the time at auctions, estate sales, and church sales. They usually go really cheap.

Slow Cooker Question

Assuming you mean 2013 (and not 1913), yes. A slow cooker should last 3 months or even longer.

Chicken & Waffles

I respect what they are doing and the space is great. However, wouldn't recommend the food. We had breakfast there and my memory is that everything was a greasy, gloppy mess. Calling the service "spotty" would be kind. Maybe they've gotten their act together. I hope so.

We did not try the chicken and waffles.
