Not only did Alton Brown, host of the Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen make some stops around town for food while visiting on his Eat Your Science tour, he ate and shopped almost like he was a Minneapolitan.
First things first, while we have great food in town, we are perhaps better known for our music. Brown perused the vinyl selection at the Electric Fetus before ambling on over to Nicollet Avenue and hitting Five Watt Coffee.
As anyone who loves brunch knows, Hola Arepa is the ideal location for an early morning weekend meal. Brown Instagrammed the bejesus out of his arepa, yucca hash, and the irresistible chilaquiles before declaring the food "simply amazing."
Now, even a celebrity can appreciate a free sample and he took great advantage of being in town for the monthly bevvy of frozen treats shared by Sweet Science. He even paused mid-scoop to snap a photo with owner Ashlee Olds.
After all that, with what must have been a full stomach, it was time to hit the stage at the Orpheum.
