Wyoming-based "West Mex" chain Taco John's knows the secret to wooing Minnesotans is tater tots. Taco John's may call them Potato Oles, but there's no fooling the inventors of the tater tot hot dish. We all know the company's fried potato rounds are just slightly smaller tater tots waiting to be drowned in nacho cheese or stuffed in a burrito.

Free tater tots at the Tot Boss truck this Sunday

Categories: Free Stuff!

From what we can tell, the new comedy Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy of Bridesmaids fame, has very little to do with tater tots. A woman who loses her job, car, and husband in one day copes by taking an epic road trip with her grandmother (played by Susan Sarandon).

All the same, fans of these crispy little potato nuggets will appreciate the tater tot giveaway that's hitting Minneapolis this Sunday to help promote the film. Does it have to make sense when free tots are involved?

Food trucks are known for inventing unique flavor concoctions, especially in Minnesota, where the warm months bring out State Fair favorites like camel burgers and fried lamb testicles. But despite our familiarity with bizarre ingredients, baby food never struck us as a suitable focal point for food truck cuisine.

On June 13, however, our preconceived notions will be thrown out the window when New York-based baby food company Beech-Nut serves a variety of dishes featuring three new baby food flavors.

Free beer deal for shutout federal employees keeps getting sweeter

Categories: Beer, Free Stuff!

What's that joke about Miller Light and having sex in a canoe? Nevermind, if you're a federal employee, you can now get a pint of any kind of beer -- even a frosty pint of craft beer -- for free anytime today at one of the participating Tuesday Brewsday locations in St. Paul. No more drowning your government woes in near-water domestics.

Tuesday Brewsday began as a way to show support for furloughed federal government employees by offering them a free round of domestic beers from 4 to 6 p.m. every Tuesday until the end of the government shutdown. The convention and visitors bureau, Visit St. Paul, arranged the offer with four area bars in St. Paul. Shortly thereafter, the number of participating bars doubled, and now, the offer is even more enticing.

"We're going from a Miller Light to a Summit Saga," says Adam Johnson of Visit St. Paul. "It was actually the restaurants' idea to make the upgrade."
