Ike’s Food and Cocktails in Minneapolis

On Saturday night before heading to see the Gear Daddies play at The Fine Line in Minneapolis Pete, Gretchen, Mike and I went to grab dinner at Ike’s in Minneapolis. Ike’s is one of those places that seems like it has been around forever but it is relatively new, they just did a great job at making it seem like a 40’s style lounge. They are known for their class cocktails and burgers and we all ended up ordering a burger! We split a starter of potstickers that got eaten so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to take a picture. I ordered the turkey burger that came with cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes and gravy. This was delicious and so filling that I only ate about half of it. read more

Spring Fitness Favorites

It was a week with less than normal workouts, more sinus issues and I am on crazy strong antibiotics that don’t make me feel like myself. But I did still get a few in! 2 days of snowshoeing with my friend Stacey who was visiting last weekend, yoga sculpt and a little cardio and weights this morning. Better than no workouts! I even did a little tabata this morning. Nothing like hard core swearing to get your body and mind back into your fitness routine. Even when you are still recovering from sinus surgery. read more
