My first time… at The Sample Room
Recently a girlfriend from my yoga studio invited me for happy hour and we finally met up tonight! When Veronica suggested The Sample Room I was elated as I have been wanting to try it forever! I have driven past the quaint little building a number of times and have always been curious but never stumbled in. But tonight was the night!
Those of us familiar with NE Minneapolis know that every building has a story; needless to say I was excited to see that the menu offered it up:
On top of all the cool history, I love the simple yet unique decor, hardwood floors, big comfy booths…
Not to mention the fabulous happy hour– $3 taps, rails, and house wine, and $3-5 appetizers DELISH!!
For this happy hour I picked a divine house salad, with blue cheese, cranberries, roasted beets and pine nuts. Unfortunately, by the time I ordered the salad it was super dim and my picture didn’t turn out very well. Nontheless, I will be going back again, and again! Anyone up for happy hour?!

Day 2: A photo that makes you happy
Before I headed off for Japan in 2004 my mom had setup a family photo shoot for us. The session was filled with lots of posing and fake smiles. But when a joke was passed about picking one another nose we were in stitches, and this was the outcome. This, makes me so happy!
