Jack Reuler: #tbt & #MBrecipes double feature!

Posted on December 31, 2014


This ‪#‎throwbackthursday‬ brought to you by Artistic Director Jack Reuler (to make up for last week’s contribution):
Jack: “Mixed Blood sprung from a social service agency called the Center for Community Action. Mixed Blood was just a program of CCA until 1980. This is the 1976 Christmas card from CCA from the first year of Mixed Blood (there is a doll with a hook hand and wooden leg attached to my jacket.) This was taken where the Coyle Center now stands.”

CCA Christmas Card, 1976
AND, bonus track, Jack’s updated contribution to ‪#‎MBrecipes‬:
Jack: “As a lifelong bachelor and vegetarian, my recipes for home cuisine require boiling water or a microwave, but I do spend too much on letting others cook for me. So let me share with you my favorite eateries, listed below in no particular whatsoever, in lieu of a bunch of boil or nuke options”
-Big Bowl (Ridgedale, Galleria, Rosedale)
-Evergreen (24th and Nicollet)
-Afro Deli (West Bank)
-Cosetta’s (West Seventh Street in St. Paul – my grandfather knew the original Mr. Cosetta)
-Dairy Queen (everywhere)
-Chino Latino (Lake & Hennepin – my parents actually met there)
-Marla’s Caribbean Cuisine (38th and Bloomington)
-Quang (27th and Nicollet)
-The Sample Room (NE Minneapolis)
-Pepito’s (48th & Chicago – proprietor Joe Minjares is almost my brother and looks like my father)
-Izzy’s, Tom’s Popcorn Shop, and Sebastian Joe’s are tied for hard ice cream
-Target Field
-Seward Coop food bar (Franklin & Riverside)
-Interlachen Inn (Alexandria, MN)
-The Baker’s Wife
-Highland Grill (on Monday nights)
It may not be haute cuisine, but I use one more belt hole each year, it seems.
Happy New Year’s Eve, all!
