Think back to the days of rectangle-shaped pizza sprinkled with mini pepperoni cubes that fit perfectly into your school lunch tray. Yeah, we're glad to be past that, too. What would've been your ideal kind of pizza as a kid? This weekend, you can watch kids show off their creative culinary talents and emulate our favorite anthropomorphic turtles to bake the most righteous 'za in the land.
This weekend, rainbows will be everywhere -- from clothes and flags to signs and more. Lots of things under the sun (and rain, if the forecast is correct) will be sporting the good ol' ROYGBIV spectrum in support of Twin Cities Pride... that includes some pretty sweet stuff. We collected some of the sweetest displays of Pride support for you.
It's time for the final countdown. In celebration of Arrested Development's return on May 26, we decided a food tour was in order. From variations on cornballs to juice, we rounded up some of the Twin Cities' answers to the Bluths' most-iconic sips and nibbles for the perfect trip around the metro. Plus, it's Memorial Day weekend -- there's a whole extra day of the weekend to wander around the cities checking these Bluth favorites off your list. Don't make a huge mistake. Try all of these.

Chips. Dips. Lil' Smokies. Along with chili, beer, and something mixed with Velveeta in a crock pot, these are the staples of the Super Bowl diet. Perhaps you are planning on getting fancy with crudités, canapes, and blended drinks but have you thought about your game day centerpiece yet? If you're considering making one that's edible, scrap the tower of football shaped cupcakes with royal icing laces (you did that last year, everyone knows) and really go all out with a snack food stadium.
Broken bones, sprained ankles and concussions are just a few of the typical injuries sustained at the annual Cooper's Hill cheese-rolling event in Gloucestershire County, England. Ambulances are on hand, as well as a volunteer rescue crew responsible for carrying the injured fallen to safety at the bottom of the hill. These were cited as reasons for canceling the event for the past two years, but yesterday the good people of Gloucestershire took matters into their own hands and held an unofficial, renegade version of the competition.

The rules of the competition are simple: an 8 lb. round of Double Gloucester cheese is rolled from the top of a large hill, and competitors bound after it, rolling, tumbling, and lurching downhill. The first person to cross the finish line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese. Words don't do the spectacle justice, so take a look at the video:More »
