Before I dive into my review of the Minneapolis brewpub scene, I have some explaining to do about Hawaii. I made a terrible mistake, and shouldn’t have gotten on the plane.

Shouldn’t have gotten on the plane *back. It’s cold here in MN. And I can’t wear flip flops every day (and for everyone who knows me well, or plays on the *EGF Girls Hockey team, they will know that I love not wearing proper winter attire).

But all I have now are the memories of the sand, sun, and all you can eat poké.

*The Utzinger Rule: You must wear shoes – athletic shoes, winter boots, etc – into the arena, or onto the away-game bus. If you wear flip flops, you’re not allowed to play in the next game. This rule was created in 2003. TEN YEARS AGO.
