Minneapolis

Minnesota, United States of America

Minneapolis, nicknamed "City of Lakes" and the "Mill City," is the county seat of Hennepin County, the largest city in the U.S. state of Minnesota, and the 47th largest in the United States. Its name is attributed to the city's first schoolteacher, who combined mni, the Dakota word for water, and polis, the Greek word for city. Minneapolis lies on both banks of the Mississippi River, just north of the river's confluence with the Minnesota River, and adjoins Saint Paul, the state's capital.

  • Our first date, on Saint Patrick’s Day of 1993, was a marathon, thirteen hours, but not in the way you’re thinking. I picked her up for lunch, and she was leaning on a parking meter in downtown Minneapolis, smiling and looking all freaking adorable. Lunch dates usually mean no kissing. But when I got out of the car, I walked over and planted one right on the lips.
