You Can’t Beet the Beats or the Brisket at Thursdays Downtown Today
They call the Minnesota State Fair the "Great Minnesota Get Together." Well, Thursdays Downtown is the Great Weekly Rochester Get Together. Every week thousands of us get together, eat some food, drink some drink and have fun with our neighbors.
As far as BEATS go, this week traditional Irish music, rock and roll, a country group, and house music, too. The BEETS? The beets are a bunch of food from multiple vendors from the Rochester Farmers Market. You'll find 'em in the People's Food Coop 3r Street Mini-Market. Yes..a mini-market!
I JUST found out about 2 Brothers Authentic BBQ Memphis Street Taco. Have you seen this? According to the RDA, you choose the pork or brisket, and 2BABBQ adds a "four-blend of shredded cheese, BBQ sauce, homemade pico de gallo, and creamy coleslaw, all tucked into a soft flour tortilla." You can also get the meats on mac and cheese with drizzled BBQ sauce.
What about other options? Tons of 'em. Grand Rounds chicken or shrimp Paella (click here for more on that) and Cameo Restaurant's KFPC Nachos, which are basically a walking version of their Korean Fried Chicken sandwich are just the tip of the fooptions (food-options).
