Birchwood Cafe, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Entrance.

Tasty Gluten Free Review
Location: Minneapolis, MN 55406
Site: birchwoodcafe.com

So wanted to find a new restaurant to try on Vaca in Minnesota and used YELP and the Birchwood Cafe by typing in gluten-free sort by highest rated for brunch. Wanted to also get drunch (haha).

So I’ll with hold my political views since this restaurant is HIGHLY political in every possible way (coming from Texas it’s a culture shock) however, if you have good food I don’t care what you do.

Oh My Gahh, a sweet potato, rice flour, kale, bacon, fried egg waffle, see full ingredients below

From the entrance to the last bite this place is truly a 5 star restaurant and deserves every award in the book, it needs to be on TV, national attention, and all employees brought to light this is a hidden gem. You get your menu at the front, figure out what you want and order with the lovely lady up front. All items are noted with the GF status if they are gluten free. They had the largest selection of unique gluten free items I’ve seen in awhile, now I opted for a bunch of food since I have to try everything that is unique. Started with a Gluten Free Pyro American Pale Ale brew which is tasty! (I then got the “booch” which was SO darn good).

Fully custom Candie Bolton Pokemon

Candie Bolton & Cat

Collecting Vinyl Toys is a few year hobby of mine and I’m always looking for something unique to add to my collection. I’m not into all that mass produced bullshit for the sheep, so I only like to spend my hard earned bills on custom, unique, 1 of a kind, limited run type of toys. I found out about Candie Bolton on Youtube while searching for how to resin/mold your own toys and ended up now supporting her on Patreon because she’s a total badass.

Bolton has a variety of toys that she produces as well as some Pokemon figures as part of her Patreon deal that she gets from Japan and custom paints. These are out of this world, here is my first months custom painted toys below, you do get to pick a selection of the ones you like. This was Wailord and Seadra. They even smell like fresh paint, they are totally dope. If you want to check her out and support hit visit her Patreon link here.

Fake Mickey 1933 World Fair Knifes

Quick Update Note: I’ve been working alot so haven’t had time to update, but still very active! I will update soon as time permits, here is a dope article I found when doing some research on some knifes I wanted to purchase. I’ve been collecting 1930’s Disney Merch and almost lost $50 to a fake, good thing I found this article, will post here.

So Walt didn’t feature any rides at the Worlds Fair in Chicago however he did have a few merchandise items there unlike the 1964 World’s Fair. So check this read out.

There’s an old saying that if you repeat a lie often enough, people will eventually believe it. That applies not only to words but also to reproductions of antiques and collectibles.

Take the case of the Mickey Mouse 1933 Worlds Fair pocket knife.

A collector once wrote to ACRN to report this knife was being reproduced. He owned an original for which he paid $115. He wanted to let us know he found a reproduction in a nearby antique mall for only $8

ZaZa Pizza in the Heights, Gluten Free Crust

Gluten Free Review
+gluten free crust

Zaza Fine Salad & Wood Oven Pizza I found while driving around the Heights, Little Rock. I called and asked if they had gluten free pizza and they did, so I was super syked.  Now it’s a cool place hidden away behind a shopping center but it’s very cozy, perfect spot to relax on a cold day. You walk in, order through a assembly line type of thing. I chose the Potato and Tomato & a Prosciutto and Arugula pizza. Thought they would be an awesome choice and tastyness, also with a glass of Prosecco.

Potato & Tomato Gluten Free Crust Pizza

So I sat at the (mini) bar next to the gelato side, went to the bathroom and came back with my number. I waited about 20 minutes and then I had to pick up my friend and the lady overheard me say I’m waiting on my pizza, she grabbed it from the heated section and apologized. I guess it had been sitting there for 10 minutes.. nobody brought the pizza to me, so if it wasn’t for my phone call I would have ended up waiting forever? Number was useless.

The pizza itself, eh, maybe it was the gluten free crust that sucked but delivery pizza is better, at least on the day I went and the choices I made, it was dry, no real flavor, and lacked any actual pizza qualities. The prosecco was awesome.

Pho Thanh My in Little Rock

Hit up some Pho on this 54 degree weather day to soothe the soul and it was decent pho, Id give it a 2/5, the greens were wilted, the service was 5 star however. The Taro bubble tea was almost to thick, could still taste the powder while you slurped. The pho itself was decent, good broth, good meat, excellent noodles, however the smell lacked what I look for in a Pho, I’d be back if I ran out of other Pho options.

WDW Day 4 AM: Guided Fishing Excursion

Disney Fishing Guide

So if you have someone you know who loves to fish, or you love to fish you can book a guided fishing excursion at Disney World. When I was younger we did it at EPCOT in the middle of the world showcase which was awesome!

This time around we booked it my for my dad and the guide took us to Disney Springs. We were picked up from our hotel at Port Orleans, and off we went on a Pontoon boat through the back alley’s of Disney Springs.

I’ll post a link of the site to book this, I think it was like $200 for 2 hours, and they include everything, sodas, rods, reels, and a guide who does all the work for you. Besides the fishing part the actual boat ride and just cruising around Disney Springs was way more awesome and adventurous then I thought it was going to be.

WDW Day 3: a super busy day at Magic Kingdom

Day 3 of our adventure begins heading over to the Magic Kingdom, and holy shit was it packed. Towards the end of the night we ended up getting the heck out of there and heading back to EPCOT, but here is my update/photos of that day since it’s technically the magical place! Also sorry for some of the image quality, had some mess ups with my new camera and a lot of the photos came out real grainy.

After exiting the Monorail, let’s see if it’s going to be a busy day?!

Getting closer to the gate *que magic kingdom music*
