How to make your lobster tails dirty and cheap
A lobster tail for $110? Cheap!
The next time you go to Minneapolis, go to the Oceanaire restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
Skip the menu and order your lobster tail "dirty" (sprinkled with a mysterious and tasty concoction of spices) - and for the low, low price of $110, the best lobster tail on the planet is yours.
I went to the place with a couple of my friends before seeing the Cars at First Avenue. After the meal, we felt pretty full and guilty about the giant price tag.
But after we got home, one of my friends - who had neglected to buy a roaming package on his cell phone - found out he'd incurred an additional $200 charge on his phone bill for messaging and roaming from Minneapolis.
So, in reality, his lobster tail cost him $310, while mine was only $110.
What a deal.
