You only have a few more chances to try 37 burgers in this year's battle. It's a challenge but it can be done! The next burger I was really excited to try is from PAve. This "ironic" burger is called "The Alanis Morissette." 

According to a previous article from my co-worker Jeff Harkness, The Alanis Morissette is a "two beef/steak blend smash patties, American cheese, mayo, and roasted hatch chili salsa, on a gourmet brioche bun." If you're looking for a simple burger to enjoy, this is the meal for you...unlike Alanis Morissette.

This burger from PAve is sneaky good. The secret is the roasted hatch chili salsa. It complements the patty and the other ingredients. Since most of us are aware that Alanis Morissette is not a simple person, this burger does need a little something extra to it. Our waitress at PAve mentioned the burger should have an extra crunch to it. Overall, The Alanis Morissette is a solid burger.

Don't forget! Residents can vote for their favorite burgers by Wednesday, January 31st on the DTSF Mobile Passport. Hurry before it's too late!

13 Times Sioux Falls Made it into a 'Jeopardy!' Question

If the world was divided into Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune people, I would be down for Jeopardy! all the way. It's a lot more fun, it makes me feel smart because I can retain lots of trivia, and I am a horrible speller. So Wheel is out, no whammies.

Recently I discovered (I mean wasted a lot of time on) a website that is an archive of clues that have been on Jeopardy!.

While digging around the archive, I wanted to find out how often Sioux Falls came up in a question (Answer) on the show. Since 1990 Sioux Falls has been part of a question or an answer 13 times.

The Best Pizzas In South Dakota

Grab a slice and enjoy some of the best pizza in South Dakota

Pizza is one of those things in life that usually everyone can agree on.
Leave it to Best Things South Dakota to uncover South Dakota’s best and favorite local pizzas. From cheese and sausage to pineapple pizza, Best Things South Dakota identified the best traditional and creative pizzas throughout the Mount Rushmore state.

Unfortunately, one pizza establishment on the list, Sioux Falls’ Zaroty closed its doors in the summer of 2020. So, I took the liberty of including one more Sioux Falls pizza place people really like!
