Are there stores in Minneapolis/St. Paul that carry charcuterie supplies? Pink salt, casings, hickory sawdust, etc? I can order all this online, but if I can buy it locally I will.

I need recommendations for doctors (primary care and specialists) in the Minneapolis area. Specifically, I need recs for a psychiatrist, a gynecologist, a dermatologist, and a primary care physician. Ideally all of them are non-judgey and weirdfolk-friendly, and for extra points they're all in-network for HealthPartners, which is my new insurance company starting Sep 1. [more inside]

Some friends and I - all new to the area - are looking for a good place to camp within a long day's bike ride of Minneapolis, MN (60-100mi). We're hoping for something where we'll see few other people, and preferably access to a lake or river, hiking trails, and general wilderness (or at least the feeling of being away from civilization for a bit), and good to stay for a couple of days. Any recommendations? I'm having a hard time with the signal to noise ratio of the rest of the internet. Thanks!

I'm flying to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport later this month. My flight arrives around 11 PM, but thanks to an unforeseen scheduling snafu, my ride won't be able to pick me up until early the next morning. Normally, I'd just hang out in the terminal overnight, but on this trip, I'll have a checked bag. What would happen if I just waited until the next morning to retrieve my suitcase from baggage claim?

I have catastrophic health insurance for the catastrophes. But until I reach that $3000 deductible, I'd really like to pay less than I currently am for checkups and other simple doctors visits.
For example, I recently went in for an ear infection. My doctor took a look and prescribed an antibiotic. It took 10m and I got a bill for $200. I'm not here to complain about how expensive health care is -- that's pretty well established and has been done plenty already -- but what are my more affordable alternatives? [more inside]

Can anyone recommend:
1) their excellent pediatrician?
2) their excellent (pediatric) allergist?
3) their excellent nurse practitioner (general practice)?

Mr. Koko and I are in Winnipeg, and like to take little weekend trips to anyplace within a day's drive. Neither of us have explored Fargo or Minneapolis, so I thought we'd hit both in one long weekend. I'm looking for one or two highlights for each place. [more inside]

Has anyone had a good experience with a pre-marriage counselor in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) metro area? Not looking for anything too religiously structured, but won't rule it out if you've had good experiences of that sort. Looking for the pre-marriage "inventory" or compatibility type classes /retreats. (We are not getting married at a church.) We are very compatible and know each other well, but I don't think it can hurt!
