    I know you guys are well-versed in Minnesota beers. Have you ever tried any of the hard liquor products from Panther Distillery in Osakis, MN? I’m just wondering if they are any good.

    1. That chick singing about “Minnie-applus” needs a cup of coffee and a laxative.
    2. Wouldn’t a rickshaw lane be cultural appropriation?
    3. Are those bike lanes seeing much use in February?

    As usual, great show!

    Not sure about Brian, but I can’t comment on the Panther Distillery. It’s up north in lake country, so not exactly local. We’d welcome comments from anyone who’s sampled their wares.

    I really liked the Talkin’ HWX parody. I almost missed it, though. I just to happen to like Tunnel of Love.

    Paul mentioned a MEET UP. Aren’t we due for a Minnesota Meet Up? Brian, Paul? Could we get Lileks too?
