It’s another jam-packed episode of WCCO Saturday Morning. It’s the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day, and Natalie Nyhus and Mike Augustyniak were getting into the spirit of things.

All this week, the WCCO Morning Show is touring the Twin Cities in their Suburban Spotlight. On Thursday, Natalie Nyhus headed east. Though she said she’s originally from the eastern suburbs, she had never heard of Grant before.
Embrace Oktoberfest with a great German meal at any of these restaurants.
