Midtown Global Market

From the local file: I went to Midtown Global Market at Chicago and Lake in South Minneapolis this afternoon, and I was immediately pleased with the varieties of resturants, food items, and gifts that this place offered. I could have had gyros, burritos, or pizza, shopped for middle eastern, Mexican, and Asian food supplies.

After splitting a gyro and getting an excellent cappuccino, as it wasn't quite time for a full meal, as the scope of the place took me by surprise, I crossed over and visited Uncle Hugo's and picked up Cory Doctorow's Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town and Paul Cornell's novel British Summertime, which I've never even seen on a shelf before.

I've been going to Uncle Hugo's for decades, but it's always been a bit sad to see the giant disused Sears building -- and the construction had made it particularly painful. But the addition of the Midtown Global Market makes both spots particularly appealing, and makes it a good destination for some food and some science fiction reading.
