Freddy’s Comes to Lakeville, MN!

I had never heard of Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers until last month when we were driving back to Minnesota from Texas and we stopped in Kansas City for fuel. We were also hungry and right next to our gas station was Freddy’s. 

I’m always game to try something new and I was so glad we did. Our steakburgers were fabulous and the custard? Well…..what can I say about the Frozen Custard except superb.


I didn’t know much about Freddy’s but I loved the vintage photos of him as a child on the walls of the restaurant. I didn’t give it much thought beyond that as what were my chances of passing through Kansas City and stopping at the same exit to eat there again.


Needless to say I was shocked when I was driving to my warehouse and there was a huge sign saying “Coming Soon. Freddy’s Steakburgers!”  Wow! Right on the corner of Pilot Knob Road and County Rd 46 by HyVee in Lakeville. Two miles from my warehouse and only 5 miles from my home. That could be trouble.

I can see myself popping in for some Dirt and Worms and all the other flavors of Frozen Custard as well. 

I did a little research and found out it isn’t the first Freddy’s location in the Minneapolis metro. One already exists in Savage as well as Maple Grove.

If you get a chance check them out. Here’s a link to show all their locations throughout the country.



Hit the St Paul Winter Carnival this weekend!

The St Paul Winter Carnival is great family event and there is still time to catch some of the activities. Winter Carnival Logo

This is a great yearly event and I have to sadly say I just haven’t taken the time to attend any of the events the last few years. What was I thinking? There is so much to do and it is just nice to get out in the fresh air and stop hibernating.




Last weekend we visited Rice Park to see the ice sculptures, watch the pony rides, eat some junk food and take photos with the Charles Schultz characters. So fun.




This weekend we are going to the St Paul State Fairgrounds to see the snow sculptures. I can’t wait! These are incredible works of art and seeing photos I know won’t do them justice.
