The Black Forest Inn, if you haven’t guessed from the name, is a German restaurant. If you guessed hotel I wouldn’t hold it against you. Anyway, yes it’s a restaurant and they serve German food. I’m not really sure if they serve authentic German food, since I’ve never been to real live Germany, but it seems pretty legit.

Cannon Falls

Cannon Falls is a little town 40 miles southeast of the Twin Cities here in Minnesota. Cannon Falls is most well known as being the home to Pachyderm Studios, the recording studio that Nirvana recorded In Utero at. And also for the drainage ditch where kids go to skateboard. At least that’s what it’s known for where I come from.

We went down to Cannon Falls to see Shellie’s parents before they head down to Arizona for the winter. And also for lunch, more food and, as it turns out, bingo.
