A few months ago, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges declared this week "The Best Week of Bragging about Minneapolis Ever." The idea, of course, was to get people talking about all the cool things our city has to be proud of -- not that Minneapolitans don't do that all the time anyway.

In any event, what better place to brag than Twitter, where hashtags and a 140-character limit mean you can find all the best #bragMPLS zingers in one convenient place! Below the jump are the 10 most entertaining tweets we've seen on the topic this week.

Cowboy Slims is shitty. Minneapolis, I'm worried for you. That whole neighborhood from Hennepin to Lyndale is going sour. R.I.P. Uptown and LynLake.

How are we supposed to #bragMPLS when this is the same city that allowed Cowboy Slims to open in the first place?

lol - cowboy slims was a great time, but a total s-hole. Wait, never mind, I was thinking of the Country Bar and Grill. Cowboy Slims died and went to hell.

The more appropriate question is when did anyone actually enjoy Cowboy Slims?
