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.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
