Minneapple vs. the Big Apple

November 15, 2010

Compliments of the founder of this site and the associated Happy Hour, let me present you with arguably the most-relevant-to-this-blog article that I could possible imagine.

In it, the good people at the A.V. Club give a quick run-down of the ways in which Minneapolis out-classes NYC. It’s mostly tongue-in-cheek, but it’s an appreciated reminder that Minneapolis isn’t just a smaller version of a ‘real’ city – we’ve got our own thing going on!

It’s a nickname that waxes and wanes in popularity, but no matter how you spell it (Minneapple, Miniapple), the implication is clear: It’s cute to consider the Twin Cities to be a bite-sized version of the Big Apple itself.

But do we Minneapolitans and St. Paulites really consider our towns to be nothing more than a microcosm of NYC? We at The A.V. Club think not. To prove it, here’s a list of things that the Miniapple has and the Big Apple doesn’t.

Also – any Minneapolitans living in NYC happen to be on this flight?
