It looked like rain when we started, but there were storms all over the cities, so we figured we might slip between them. Rained for a bit up by Phalen, but the wind was the scary part. We got hit with a cloud of sand downtown which put grit in everyone's mouths. NavyDave said a branch dropped behind us near Phalen, as well.
We ended at Common Roots and I have to say we might not be going there again for a while. No more bagels in the evening, and it looks like they're trying to go more upscale. Now that Leaning Tower and many other places have Surly, we'll find a new Uptown destination.
