Frozen Groks? Grokettes? In the Star of the North? Anyone for a meetup at Fogo de Chao in Minneapolis?

I absolutely love Von Hanson's, but if you want to speak with someone who is worth their salt- go to the flagship store in Apple Valley! The other, newer locations tend to staff youngsters. As for grass-fed beef, the last time I inquired (around 2 months ago) they said they had "something in the works". Please go and ask them! They won't start carrying it unless we ASK FOR IT! Btw I am a male with a home in Eagan, MN. I have been Paleo (with full fat dairy) for 9 months now. Would love to meet-up with other Paleo folks in the Twin Cities, maybe some disc golf or a picnic?

Never checked the out, I'd also be interested in a review. You should check out the Minnesota Paleo Friends Facebook page, folks there might offer a review for you.

Yes! Robinsdale. No fogo though - too expensive. I'm not poor for a reason! There should be a gathering at a farmers market during the summer.

Hey neighbor! Im in Robinsdale. But seems youve not been on in over a year so this message is pointless.

Born and raised myself, but now living in China, I'm afraid. If I ever convince my mom to go truly paleo I'll let you know :-)

I'm not terribly strict (I eat dairy and as a homebrewer am not giving up beer any time soon) and live in Brooklyn Center.

What are MN Paleo's thoughts on Von Hanson's? I usually get a person much younger than I working the counter, and they don't have answers to questions about grass-fed beef, pastured eggs, etc.

I have a ton of gift certificates to them, and they do have wonderful filets and other cuts of steak there. Or am I missing the boat entirely with this place? (Please say no).

hey Id be interested in meeting up. Have been doing a paleo diet for about 2 months. I've had a few small slips but really feel like this is the way to go. Being apart of a group that believes in the same thing would be great.

I'm near the twin cities and absolutely love Fogo de Chao. Unfortunately it's rather spendy and the hubby and I are trying to be frugal. :-p

I'm a Chiropractor in Eden Prairie and my family has been living paleo ever since my 6 year old boy stopped breast feeding. He doesn't get dairy or grains. I speak specifically on this topic and have become an expert in it. My clients have seen miraculous changes with it and I couldn't endorse it enough. You are right...there is a serious gap right now in the Midwest for this info. I will be starting an information group this summer about paleo lifestyle and nutrition.

Holy mackrel, we have four!

Jesus, I was absolutely buried in St. Boni...you should have seen me grumbling...Why do we live here? The low taxes and balmy weather? WTF?

6 more folks or is that too ambitious? Any grokettes?...Fogo de Chao? (http://www.fogodechao.com/)

(I'm not a native Minnesotan, but you know the weather is hard when the natives don't show for work).

Cool! I'm in Saint Boni! I'm strict about myself, but not a fanatic about what other folks do. Let's see if we can get a few more Minnesota people. Hello? Stop being sad faced Norwegians and Swedes...let's do a meet up in the land of ice and snow. Fogo de Chao in Minneapolis?

Go Packers!

Just kidding...I'm wondering how many Paleo folks there are in the Midwest period. It seems like all the seminars and events are on the Coasts. Where's the Midwestern Paleo love?!?!

Even though our respective sports fans all hate each other, we Heartland Grok Stars have to stick together!

Lots of mov-nat action at the base of my driveway today dealing with our too-many inches in Saint Paul. Snow shoveling was a downer for grok, I'm thinking. Hard going with a stick or a flat rock. He probably paid the cave kid down the block a hide or two to take care of it.

I'd be up for meeting up.

...and a couple of months later, still am. Doesn't have to be Fogo de Chao, although I'd be fine with that. Breakfast would be ok, too.
