patstapHello world! Allow me to introduce myself—Shannon, GetKnit Guru at your service. I’m six months new to the Twin Cities, originally from Kansas City but most recently a resident of Houston, TX. Boasting one of the highest rates of “eating out” in the US, Houston sure does have some amazing restaurants. So when I moved here my expectations were pretty high for the foodie in me.

And yet the Twin Cities delivered! Not only does our city have a countless number of any type of food you could ever want, but it focuses much more on healthy, local, farm-to-table ingredients. Amongst the locally-grown greatness stands Pat’s Tap Gastro Pub. You already can’t go wrong with the sheer aesthetics of this place and the Skee-Ball games in the back. But sit down and order yourself a micro-brew and the Black Rice Burger and you just might die. You Minnesotans know your wild rice—and I am NOT complaining. I never thought I’d be craving a vegetarian burger, but thanks to Pat’s Tap, this girl is hooked. Thank you, Minnesota, for introducing me to Wild Rice. I can’t wait to GetKnit around town to find more delectable versions of this goodie…
