A better location? Really?

I had to go to a wedding in Blaine on Saturday, and as I only drive a 49cc scooter, I can’t take the freeway. One advantage to this is that I get to see all the stuff en route that everyone else misses. Like the new location for Totinos. On County Road 10 in Mounds View. The actual address is 2535 Highway 10 NE, Mounds View. It’s a standalone building with its own parking lot, what looks to be a former Bridgeman’s or the like. I hope that the fine people of the northern suburbs appreciate a non-chain place, and that the family continues to be successful in their new digs. I miss having them just across the river in Northeast, and probably won’t be making the trip up to Mounds View that often. Maybe they’ll foster a renaissance of small individually owned restaurants in outer ring suburbs. Highway 10 will become Eat Street North. Right?

    Hilarious just picturing you on your scooter. How many times did you have to stop and get gas, man?

    The new Totino’s used to be a Mattress Factory. Was the parking lot packed? We were told a 2 hour wait on a Wednesday evening earlier this month.

    It was only a 36 or 37 mile round trip for me, so no need to get gas that time. I’ve thought about trying a long trip sometime, but having to stop for gas every hundred miles would be really annoying. Not to mention that I’d probably burn out the motor.

    The parking lot was virtually empty, but it was only 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon when I went past. I wasn’t completely sure it had opened yet.
