IceJohn you should post this under the portable mod thread in Icefishing cause it will be seen by more who have gone to this event. I know there is a sports bar close by that was called Bifs that served some pretty good burgers but that was a few years ago so there might be something better or there is places around northtown mall that is just a little north of Thorne Brothers.

I live right down the road and there are a ton of good places to eat around there. What kind of food are you looking for? There are tons of chain locations around, but there are some independents as well. GB Leighton's Pickle Park is just around the corner from Thorne and they have live music every weekend, Saturday evening Rhino is playing. Pretty cool place. If you are more inclined to try some Sushi, there is a pretty cool place called T-Asia a few miles north east of Thorne on Hwy 65 and 105th Ave. Bunch of sports bars in that neck of the woods as well.

I can try to help you out, just let me know what you have a hankering for.

Don't know if you are looking at staying in the area of Thorne Bros or going elsewhere but in Golden Valley there is a place called Bennihana's (spelling??). It's a Japanese steak place and one of my favorites. You sit around a cook top and the chefs are flinging knives and everything around as they cook your food. It's great food and entertainment and isn't way over priced.

I've gone to Thorne with my wife and after she drags me out of there we've gone to Outback Steakhouse just north of the place. If you're looking for a chain, that's usually a good time with good food.

If you're looking for someplace more special or unique, I can't help.

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
