Dinner at the News Room Surrounded By Primary Sources (and We Loved the Food)!

Deb pointed out this article so of course we had to have our picture taken with it
It's our first night in Minneapolis for the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Conference. Where to eat?

Thanks to the door man's recommendation, we ended up at The News Room, right down the street, on Nicollet Mall. Are we glad we went!

Do we recommend the food?

I know my dish was to-die-for -- Coco Shrimp, "Jumbo (Gynormous and PLUMP) gulf shrimp rolled in coconut, fried and topped with pineapple glaze and pineapple salsa, garlic mashed potato." A steal at $19.95.

At first we didn't think we had room for dessert, but we ended up sharing the fresh peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream, -- mmm, Divine. Who would have thought that basil would make a cobbler heavenly? Chefs are geniuses.

Just right to share, when you think you don't have room ... 

We're expecting great things from this conference, and our first getting-settled-in day ended quite splendidly, thanks to the interesting atmosphere and fabulous food at The News Room.

Four thumbs way up!
