weatherguy2000: Raising Canes - a review

I don't know if this is the place for this, but I'm going to do it anyway. This is a review of Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers", a fast-food restaurant in Apple Valley. It's at the northwest corner of Cedar Avenue (CR23) and CR42. The restaurant has been open for a few months, but I finally got to it today.

Think a "poor-man's" Buffalo Wild Wings. No, that's not right. Think a homeless man's BWW.

It is true they have chicken fingers, and that's all they have. Oh, wait, they have fries and coleslaw and bread. But that's. about. it. Their menu has four meal packages and one kid package. They also have various size bunches of tenders: 20, 30, etc. Want some

You place your order, then wait while it's made. The meals are served in white styrofoam boxes. (So much for the presentation.) I got a #2 (3 chicken fingers, piece of bread, fries, and a drink). It was less than impressive. The wings were cooked, but the breading was a little soggy, and the corrugated fries were a little limp, too. The prices were a little higher than I expected, too, with $6 for my meal. Dunno, maybe that's what they're going for nowadays.

The atmosphere was a little cute. The restaurant was named for Cane, the owner's dog. The decor was your basic restaurant setup, a mix of booths and tables. On the walls were a few posters of music and movies with a decided Minnesota theme.

So, would I go again? No. Do I recommend this restaurant? No. I'd rather pay a little extra and get much more variety and much better chicken at Buffalo Wild Wings (just up Cedar, coincidentally).

vnsplshr: Storage/Garage Space?

I have some lumber stored in the backyard shed of a home that's now been put up for sale. I have a month to find a new home for the stuff.

Does anyone know of unused garage space or a storage shed in Bloomington, Edina, Richfield, Eagan, or South Minneapolis I could rent? If you have any leads, let me know.

irish_dragon: Reiki

I've created a group called mn_reiki, for those of you who are not a member of twin_cities, I'm looking for the goings on for Reiki evens for my group.

Since personally I'd like to be more involved in the community, especially w/ Reiki, I created the group for others that may want to be part of it as well.

So I'm looking for information and places that are hosting  Reiki classes, shares, art, just plain meeting, etc.

So does any one have something to add?

joeylemur: Air conditioning service

Can anyone recommend a good air conditioning repair person? My central air crapped out this weekend -- I think its either an expansion valve problem, or it needs a freon recharge.
