Mad about the Twin Cities

Yes, we're mad about the Twin Cities. Why? Because as the TV series Mad Men has shown us, 1961 is a great time to be alive. Here in the Cities, we now have two new professional sports teams—the Twins and Vikings—playing at Metropolitan Stadium. There's shopping at Dayton's and the new indoor mall at Southdale. And we have no end of fine restaurants where you can enjoy a perfectly cooked steak and a fine cigar.

Whether you're an office secretary or a high-powered ad executive, the Twin Cities offers something for everyone. On the following pages, we tell you where to find the best martini for that big client lunch, the best tobacco shop for your pipe and Lucky Strikes, the best romantic restaurant for that steamy office affair, and the best clothes, jewelry, and haircut for the 1960s.

So grab your hat or your heels, dial up your friends, and fill up the Pontiac: It's time to live the American Dream.
