No doubt about it, winter is here in Minnesota and that means hockey. It’s played on ponds and in parks, but we wanted to find the best high school hockey rink in Minnesota. Your votes sent WCCO’s Matt Brickman all the way up to Thief River Falls to see the Ralph Engelstad Arena.
You may have become used to the furry faces in WCCO’s weather center over the last four weeks, but Movember is about to end. All month, WCCO has been sharing with you the stories behind the mustaches, including one man whose battle against testicular cancer has a miraculous ending.
In 1914, with the world on the brink of war and Woodrow Wilson in the White House, the Cozy Theatre opened its doors on Jefferson Street in Wadena.
It’s a very happy anniversary on Wednesday for the weather team at WCCO-TV. What started as an idea one year ago turned into a network where our meteorologists get daily updates from our own viewers who have a passion for weather.
For the first time in a long time, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day – Thursday, Nov. 28. The new holiday is being called “Thanksgivukkah.” Like most big holidays, this new one means lots of time will be spent in the kitchen. Tracy Truesdell is Jewish, but her husband isn’t. So, their family is used to getting creative when celebrating with their boys.
Whether it’s a co-worker, friend or family member, we all know someone who’s battled cancer. This month, through Movember, WCCO is trying to raise awareness about cancers affecting men.
Thanksgiving weekend is one of the most popular times of year to catch a movie with family and friends. After all, what better way to get all that turkey, stuffing, potatoes and pumpkin pie full through your system than with a nice big bucket of buttery popcorn?
With snowflakes falling Thursday, we are entering the peak of soup season. And in Minnesota, that means wild rice soup. It’s as much a part of the diet here as hot dish. But who makes the best? Your votes sent me to Monticello to try a bowl at the Cornerstone Cafe.
We’ve reached the half-way point of Movember, and for our meteorologists, that means their staches are just starting to round into form. Of course, for guys, it’s pretty easy to tell we’re taking part in Movember.
Now that the weather is getting colder, many of us will be switching to indoor activities — like bowling. So this week, we asked for your help in finding Minnesota’s best bowling alley. You picked Cedarvale Lanes in Eagan.
WCCO’s male meteorologists don’t look so fresh-faced this month, but that’s only because they’re participating in Movember. They’re growing mustaches to raise awareness for men’s health and wellness.
There aren’t many foods that bring back more memories than the grilled cheese sandwich. But who makes Minnesota’s best grilled cheese? Viewers’ votes sent Matt Brickman to Don’s Café in Morris, Minn.
Ahh, the grilled cheese. So simple in its initial set-up, yet so open to the endless possibilities of its willing creator. Of course, there’s the classic — melted American cheese, two slices of bread, and yes, a healthy slathering of butter.
Hockey and facial hair go together like peas and carrots. So when the founders of Movember came to the NHL about five years ago, the league saw the charity as a perfect fit.
This might be as tough of a topic as we’ve tackled in Best of Minnesota. Because when you ask someone what their favorite beer is they might say “all of them.” But we asked you to take on this daunting task and narrow it down to just one.
