Thoughts and Links 2/5 Edition

So much to read, so little time. Here is a new bunch of links to keep you from that project your supposed to be working on.

  • We Got Served reviews Birchwood cafe, I've been thinking of making the trip to try it out and this definitly didn't change my mind.
  • Emily sent me here and I just had to re-post Jess's found note.
  • Ginger describes the mood around Best Buy Corporate since the layoff announcements.
  • The Foshay Tower is one of my favorite buildings in Minneapolis and this photo is great.
  • Paul gives us a bit of the history of the Minneapolis mass transit system before buses ruled the world. He also gives us photos of lounging bears.
  • Another reminder that outdoor Twins baseball is going to be awesome.
  • Submit your ideas on what to do with the space near the Guthrie in downtown Minneapolis.
  • Ed details the gaming of Digg by Village Voice.
  • Reuben shows us one of the perils of biking in winter.
  • You've probably already seen it, but News Cut links to the Blagojevich-Letterman interview.
  • Coke is dropping the classic from their label. It's about time since kids these days weren't born when New Coke hit the streets.
  • If you don't get this set of graphs, your not nearly as geeky as I am.
  • I love this photo of a winter sunset over the cities.
  • Katie takes a tour of the St. Paul winter market. I didn't know this existed and am excited to check it out soon.
  • Unnecessary proposals aren't new to Congress, but this one is just dumb.
  • Finally, Cheap Healthy Good has a recipe that mimics the egg McMuffin. I've made something similar to this before, but never quite went to these extremes.

Hope your week is going well, and if you are on Twitter, I'm looking forward to meeting you tonight or next Thursday.
