I have a totally phenomenal brother. He is smart, funny, loving, and an excellent role model for not stressing the small things.
We used to wrestle a lot, but then he got bigger than me and I had to put an end to that. Baby boy grew up:
Jk, he’s not that big.
Last week, I had one day with my brother all to myself in Minneapolis, so I had to show him how cool I am by bringing him around to do lots of fun stuff. Here’s what to do with your baby brother for one day in the Minneapple….
1. Go to the Electric Fetus
The Electric Fetus is first and foremost a music store. They have LPs and CDs from pretty much any artist you can imagine. If you’re overwhelmed by the selection, there is always a music expert working at the music desk to help you.
Although music is the main appeal, the store also sells a little bit of pretty much everything else.
And a healthy selection of the most random stuff you have ever seen:
2. Lunch at Cafe Ena
With so many awesome restaurants in the area, it was tough to choose a lunch spot, but we settled on the award-winning Latin Fusion restaurant, Cafe Ena. In south Minneapolis at the intersection of 46th and Grand, Cafe Ena is super yum. I didn’t try it myself, but I hear their guacamole is to die for. We ordered a horchata to try (mainly since neither of us had tried one before):
Horchata is a traditional Spanish beverage made from ground almonds (similar to almond milk plus extra spices). For the meal, I ordered a chicken curry dish:
and the bro ordered a jerk chicken sandwich on telera bread:
3. Go to a concert
Vampire Weekend was playing at the Orpheum. Enough said.
So there you have it. I am officially a super cool sister.
Sort of. 🙂
