Goin’ To The (Frozen) Lake: Wahkon On Mille Lacs (Day 2)

Frank Vascellaro and Chris Shaffer are braving the frigid weather and getting out to Minnesota’s lovely, ice-covered lakes every Thursday and Friday until the middle of February. On Jan. 17, the duo headed out to the Mille Lacs town of Wahkon, which is about 90 miles north of the Twin Cities. Frank and Chris say Wahkon reminds them a little of Dorset, which they visited last spring, because of its tiny population and growing reputation for food. There are four restaurants all on about a one-block stretch!
