Q: What do you like about working at Namaste?

A: Everything you could do and enjoy outside of work, I get to do as a job. The people I work with are like family. The food is natural and organic -- it makes you feel good. We just got a full bar, and we're going to have a full bar outside on the patio.

Q: You've recently gone blonde after a while as a brunette. Has it been a positive experience?

A: I was a bit of a blonde hater before, but now I really do think that blondes have more fun. It makes me feel like I can conquer the world.

Q: Some say Uptown isn't the hottest neighborhood in Minneapolis anymore. Do you have anything to say in defense of Uptown?

A: I was recently living in Northeast, which I love -- but I think everything goes in cycles. Uptown may have been hotter years ago, but now I want to bring it back.

Q: What's the most fun thing to do in the Twin Cities besides going to a club?

A: Drive-in movies at Vali-Hi. You can grill out, you can make out, you can play Frisbee. It's the best date place.
