Ben, Dana and Giselle's replay: 11/4/16

The Morning Show gang test whether Dana and Ben are truly Manly.

Happy Friday Jams party people! Did you hear about Nintendo Retro is out next week? We know where Intern Anna will be next week. We had a packed morning and kicked off the weekend right with manly things, relationship problems, and a great game of $1000 Minute. You don’t want to miss anything!

Manly Things

How manly do you think Ben and Dana are? With Ben headed to Deer Camp this weekend we wanted to know if he would fit the mold to be among the men shooting bucks, drinking beer and eating chili. He will be sleeping in a garage among the dead deer (no thank you! ). G found a list just to test Ben and Dana’s manliness. Firing a firearm? Knowing basic electric and plumbing? Nope! They did win in the grilling and smoking meats category and Dana can dance! Good luck getting covered in deer pee! Bit of advice for Ben, watching The Deer Hunter won’t be very helpful.

Getting married? Joining bank accounts?

We heard from Dylan, who needed our help with something pretty important. He is looking to get more serious with his girlfriend soon, but also looking to join bank accounts. He was all about it but she wasn’t too keen on the idea. We asked Dana, the only one who’s married in the room, for what works for him, and it turns out that in 2016, two separate bank accounts is totally cool because Venmo is a thing. Ben and G were more about the symbolism of “what’s mine is yours” idea. What has worked for you?

The Trend

Deer opener is this weekend, so 500,000 people will be out hunting in Minnesota. The election season is almost over, and we can’t wait for this to end, even if we know there might be a recount and then another recount. Well… this may never end. It’s a big movie weekend with Trolls, Doctor Strange, and Hacksaw Ridge opening with great reviews so far, but we will be enjoying the weather because it’s 70 degrees in November.

Get Outside this Weekend!

It's November and it will be 70 degrees this weekend. We aren't complaining, but we want to know what's still open, because water parks closed a couple months back. Patio furniture is going back out and we're getting our day drinking on where ever an open rooftop may be.

$1000 Minute

We had a good feeling that this morning would be the day that we gave away $1000, and we were right! Cade strolled through $1000 Minute and is treating his wife to date night. Congratulations to him! Celebrate all weekend long!

Get To Know

Chris stopped-in to the office this morning, and we seriously questioned if he was on drugs. His question this morning for Get To Know was: "If you had to be an animated character, or some sort of animated creature, who (or what) would you be?" Things got weird when he revealed he wanted to be a polar bear (in live action), that hated the North Pole. Did we also mention he will be wearing a Hawaiian shirt with sunglasses? Yeah, it only went uphill from there.

Tell Us Something Good

It's Friday and it's almost the weekend, so we wanted to hear what was going good in your life. Jason and Katelyn are going to Snow Show for bringing a little positivity to the day.

Foodie Friday with Tbsp Waffles

Welcome Rachel from Tbsp. Waffles! Have you ever tried something that's like a donut, waffle, french toast, and love all in one? Yeah we haven't either, up until this morning. She'll be popping up all over the Twin Cities all winter long to get some sugary goodness.

9:50 Rap Up
Don't forget the Daily Rap Up with Chaz Kangas (@chazraps) who freestyles a secret word and recaps everything we talked about previously in the show.
