Singing for St Paul
I've lived in the Twin Cities area my whole life, but never right in St Paul or Minneapolis. I find it very funny though that people are very tied to one city or the other. For city natives, it isn't really just a joke that they do not cross the city border. I once managed a program where my team had to do home visits. Not realizing this border crossing phenomenon before hand, I had one of our field reps in panic mode when I assigned her a neighborhood that literally was just over the Marshall Ave bridge from the neighborhood she already covered in St Paul. With Adele being in concert next week at a St Paul venue, some creative person did a parody to get folks jazzed up about St Paul, and beer. I can think of a dozen other things to feature as St Paul sites beyond beer, but it is mildly amusing. So, if you are not familiar with my part of the world, take a peek. The more than slight poke at Minneapolis's Uptown crowd gave me a laugh.
