There is a real inclination to re-brand the Northwoods as a new Portland – tall pines and rocky shores, hip t shirts and third wave coffee. And those things are true of Minnesota – our art and fashion culture, our food and music, are engaging and vibrant. But, we must also embrace that which makes us a little dorky – a little offbeat and hard to classify. That combination is what defines us as a region.

Perhaps a perfect example is Anne and Jeremy’s ice fishing wedding celebration. A friend-based ice fishing tournament brought a lot of joy to this cold cold February day. This was surely the finest, the largest, ice fishing compound ever in Minnesota – comprised of several ice shanties joined together into a small ice fishing village, full of beer and hot cocoa, and a lot of laughter.

I have a new Minnesota achievement unlocked – Ice Fishing. Well, at least documenting ice fishing for Anne + Jeremy, whose sense of community is so great that they held an ice fishing open tournament the day after their wedding for all of their out of town friends. Anne’s father created an actual ice fishing settlement to house all the folks, and Anne was able to show off her new ring while baiting a hook.
