fresh.mn is ceasing publication.

Effective immediately, fresh.mn will cease publication. This project and it’s place in my life have reached a natural conclusion. I will let the fresh.mn domain expire. That will happen mid-July.

The fresh.mn tumblr and Twitter - which have 460+ and 2550+ followers respectively - will hang out for a while as they are not hosted on this domain. Get at me if you’re interested in these assets.

You can find/follow me personally as swirlspice. Chiefly, blog/tumblr/twitter. Contact me via the blog.

I’ve written more about the personal bits and thought process behind this decision if you’re curious about that.

I cannot thank all of you enough for the comments, tweets, reblogs, likes, retweets, etc. I sincerely hope each of you reading this learned at least one new thing about life in the Twin Cities that you did not know before.

I’ve had a lot of fun participating in the Twin Cities blogging community in various places since 2005. I’ve met a ton of great people. I’ve stumbled upon a ton of really great things. It has fundamentally changed my experience of living here for the better. It’s not a stretch to say that it’s a large contributor to the fact that I still live here and haven’t moved away.

Yours in Twincy,
Erica Mauter

Vegan- & GF-Friendly Eats in Minneapolis -

I’ve spent the evening creating this list (that is still growing) of places where I know I can eat at least one thing. After last night’s no-delivery meltdown, I decided to take charge and be proactive about eating out. Under each place is a list of dishes I know I can eat if I’ve been there before, or special menus they’ve listed online for my cause. Never again shall I sit in silence at Green Mill!

this could be useful

I’ll be honest, though. I have been a big doubter of the WNBA. I was one of those guys who said things like, “the worst NBA player would win the MVP in the WNBA,” and “they just don’t have the skill level to keep it entertaining.” I never really thought I’d be interested in the Minnesota Lynx.

Well, you know what? I was dead wrong.
