Ben, Dana and Giselle's replay: 2/1/17

Ben, Dana and Giselle debate the merits of SPAM and talk Valentine's Day plans.
Author:

6:00 Last Night's Shenanigans 

Ben got in on some nachos last night and met a really nice lady (who had a weird voice because #NobodysPerfect). She was nice, at least until her date showed up a little bit later. Dana made a nice dinner for his wife and cooked up some stir fry, and Giselle headed over to 4Bells with an old friend, and everyone learned what brick chicken is.

6:15 The Anti-Valentines Day

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Ben is telling us about the all-you-can-eat sushi at PinkU, the next place in town. Yes, we said all-you-can-eat sushi. If that's not your thing, Milkjam is celebrating Singles Awareness Day, because everyone needs ice cream in their lives. The best and coolest event in town though: K Flay at Fine Line hosted by your favorite radio station,Go 96.3. Head over and hang with Ben, Dana and Giselle.

6:30 The Trend 

Cats are now up against the dogs in the Westminster Dog Show. Yes, that's right, cats will now be featured in a dog show. Next year though, B, D and G are hoping to see Ostriches. Rumors of Lady Gaga's performance are swirling, as she will apparently be performing on the roof. Two weeks prior to the Super Bowl is the best time to buy a televisions, as stores are cleaning out last year's models.

6:50 Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam 

Apparently, there is a difference between Minnesota sushi and Spam sushi. Thank goodness too, right? So that got everyone talking about Spam. We heard from Bailey who is a big fan of Spam fried and with some cheesy eggs. Ben isn't on that Spam train but Giselle and Intern Anna might be open to the idea. Check in on Thursday to find out the great Spam debate.

7:15 Florida or Wisconsin

B, D and G have a new favorite game. Here's how it works: Dana finds some headlines that could have only happened in either Florida or Wisconsin. When we've played in the past, Ben has been ahead. First things first: "Cops Find Man in a Trash Can Dressed as SpongeBob Squarepants". What are your guesses? Everyone can be a winner as long as they don't live in Wisconsin or Florida.

7:50 $1000 Minute

Sara played a very enthusiastic game of $1000 Minute taking home the cash money. Play along everyday at 7:50am.

8:15 Get To Know

DO (Pronounced dough) is the new "raw" cookie dough bar that recently opened up in New York City. What kind of specialty restaurant would you like to open around the corner from your place? Ben is looking for a place that burns food just a little, for that extra crispiness. Dana is down for a nacho bar, a 24/7 nacho bar with all sorts of queso, cheese, more queso, and meats. Giselle on the other hand is thinking about a restaurant named "The Ranch" and, you guessed it, it is a stop with different ranch dressings. What other good ideas should come to Minnesota just to make things easier for everyone?

8:50 #RelationshipNotGoals

Our friend John called in with a bit of a problem. He has a friend who is married with a pregnant wife. Seems ok right? Well there are some rumors flying around that their baby...might not be his. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNN. Listen to what happens with Ben, Dana and Giselle.
