Happy Birthday Minnesota!

"Thanks MPLS" by Aaron Draplin at

Yes, today May 11, is Minnesota's 153rd brithday! Yaaaayyyyyy! Minnesota is just awesome, and I'm not saying that because I live here. Let me list the reasons:

 We are the number one bike-friend state in the US (suck it Portland, Oregon).
 The metro area is only second to New York City in live-theatre per capita.
 We have Prince and Atmosphere.
 Eden Prairie is the number one city to live in the country!
♥ SPAM. Fed our soldiers in the war... (WWI and WWII)
 Juicy. Freaking. Lucy.
 Home of the original Zombie Pub Crawl.
♥ The Walker Art Center is considered a heavy-hitter nationally on the modern art scene.
♥ We have sidewalks in the sky.
♥ We have Mall of America...I guess it's good for tourism.
♥ Winter makes us strong.
♥ And apparently, Minneapolis is the new "gayest city."

And another note, we apparently are also the number one state for hipsters. I don't know whether this is cause for celebration or sorrow. People in Uptown and Urban Outfitters must be celebrating now, we beat Williamsburg, NY.
