Kramer Does International Falls

I’m arguably the biggest fan of car rides on this pawesome planet – so my tail was a’waggin’ with the speed of a thousand Spaniels when I jumped in for what I thought was a spin around the block, only to end up in scenic International Falls, Minnesota! International Falls is the “last city” before … Read More

Kramer Does Bayfield and Madeline Island (Part 2)

Y’all may recall from my recent report on Bayfield that it’s not only canine savvy, it’s also the gateway to a nearby Otterhound oasis. This place may actually change the way you think dog-friendly places are supposed to be because this, Sidewalk Doggers, is an actual island – Madeline Island. And dogs are welcome to visit with their humans. … Read More

Kramer Does Bayfield and Madeline Island (Part 1)

I’m a lucky dog: I was adopted at an older age, landed a Great Dane-sized gig traveling to my tail’s content, and met all kinds of cool folks. Little did I know my luck until I was assigned to get a pre-summer sniff of two amazing places that most dogs only dream about: Bayfield and … Read More

Kramer Does Lowertown and Snelling in St. Paul

Ya’ll may recall that I’m not originally from Minnesota; I moved to the Twin Cities to get adopted (check!). You know what I pawsitively love most about this area? First, just because we have four seasons does not mean I have to sit inside on my tail during the coldest one. Second, it’s big but it … Read More

Kramer Does Stanley’s Northeast Bar Room

I thought I had experienced all there was in the world of restaurant patios; after all, in my official capacity as canine reporter, I’ve visited more than my fair share of doggie-delighting places. Recently, however, I came upon something magical. In fact, never in my wildest, car-chasing dreams had I imagined such wonders as this … Read More

Kramer Does Vali-Hi Drive-In Theater

Why is it we always hear about human date nights? How about “woof nights” with dogs, huh? I could bark incessantly on the reasons to make time for these doggie date nights, but I’d rather point(er) you to my new favorite dog-friendly night on the town: dinner and a movie at Lake Elmo’s Vali-Hi Drive-In, … Read More
