1. Tara's Himalayan Cuisine
Kristen L.O.F.: Lovely authentic cuisine, which means they don't dilute the spicy!
2. The Advocate
Kristen L.O.F.: Had the feta, squash-blossom, spinach flatbread (excellent), the chickpea-clam fritters (awesome) and can't wait to go back to try more. Found easy seating at the community table too.
3. Sophia Café
Kristen L.O.F.: This place has closed.
4. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Kristen L.O.F.: Don't miss the basement.
5. Little Star Pizza

6. Goodwill Industries
Kristen L.O.F.: Well organized, a little more expensive than other thrift stores.
7. Stanford Mausoleum
Kristen L.O.F.: The Mausoleum opens up once a year in the Spring to celebrate the founders of this great university.

Kristen L.O.F.: Come back at night, when it is all lit up - a totally different experience.
9. Minneapolis Institute of Art
