Just Like Home

Last weekend when we were up north, on Saturday Linzy and I went into Park Rapids for lunch. Park Rapids has a population of under 4,000 people, and is more or less a typical Northern Minnesota town getting by on tourism and summer lake homes.

As we were driving down main street, we randomly saw a Khan's Mongolian Barbeque restaurant in town. Apparently they have four locations in the Twin Cities (Roseville, Richfield, etc) as well as a fifth in Park Rapids.

Which seems pretty random, when the other four are clustered relatively close by each other. My assumption is that the owner owns a cabin up near Park Rapids and decided that the tourists should lose some money up there, just like they do down in the Twin Cities.

But still, kind of strange.
