Apparently the greatest thing to come from Minnesota isn't the Mighty Ducks or Prince! It's The Local. 80 foot bar? Love it. Their signature drink? The Big Ginger, a simple combination of Jameson, ginger ale, and both lemon and lime wedges. They have a ton of beer on tap, but who cares when they have the Big Ginger. Did we mention that we like the Big Ginger? And we're not the only ones—in 2008, when the bar kept track of this sort of thing, they were going through 22 bottles of Jameson a day making just Big Gingers.
