City Guide: Twin Cities

I absolutely love to travel. Exploring different regions, tasting their cuisines, and most importantly, shopping in their local boutiques! I'll be featuring my favorite travel spots from time to time, but first off I need to feature my hometown. Without further adieu, my top locales to check out in the Twin Cities:

Sleep: W Minneapolis - Trendy, Sexy, and Historical. They also throw some amazing parties.
          Saint Paul Hotel - Classy, Timeless, Elegant. They serve high tea, as well!
          The Hotel Ivy - Understated sophistication. Arguably the best spa in the city.
Eat:    Broders' Pasta Bar - Fresh, classic Italian. My favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities.
          The Mill Northeast - Delicious brunch at this recently re-opened spot.
          WA Frost - Elegant restaurant in Cathedral Hill. Also voted 'best patio' in the Summer.
Drink: The Happy Gnome - Best Bloody Mary (pair it with their delicious Sunday brunch)
           Marvel Bar - Minneapolis speakeasy with crafty cocktails.
           Borough/Parlour - Cozy space with delicious coctails. Parlour is below Borough.
Shop: June Resale - Hands down, my favorite shop in MSP. Amazing designer finds! And the owner is pretty fab, too (hey, Daune!)
          gh2 - Great consignment Northeast. Amazing European designers!
          Arrow - Modern, luxe, trendy. Incredible finds in the North Loop.
Explore: Minneapolis Institute of Arts - Check out the impressionists, as well as the Egyptian wing.
          Target Field - Best stadium in the country. Amazing food, gorgeous views, and, well, baseball!
          St. Paul Gangster Tour - St. Paul was crawling with gangsters during prohibition. Check out this tour! This picture is a house the Barker-Karpis gang was staying in while on the "lam".

What are your favorite places in Minneapolis/St. Paul?
