Yes, I remember that Ventura was Minnesota's governor at one point.
Whiskey Row - refers to a block-long stretch from 101–133 W. Main Street that once served as home to the bourbon industry in Louisville, Kentucky. The collection of Revivalist and Chicago School-style buildings with cast-iron storefronts were built between 1852 and 1905. In 1857, the buildings were built and used to store whiskey barrels that had been produced from the distilleries nearby. On a list of Louisville Most Endangered Historic Places, the buildings were slated for demolition in 2011, but an agreement between the city, local developers, and preservationists saved Whiskey Row. On July 6, 2015, a fire partially destroyed three of the Whiskey Row buildings extending from 111–115 W. Main Street. Developers vowed to continue redeveloping the properties. The accidental fire began in the basement of one of the buildings that were at the time being renovated. Thankfully, the buildings were vacant and there were no injuries. As of today, Whiskey Row the buildings have been renovated into Old Forester Distillery (its original 1880s home at 119 West Main Street), luxury apartments, restaurants, and retail businesses. When the entire Whiskey Row project is finished, the 100th block of Main Street will include a distillery tourist attraction, two upscale hotels, and a huge retail outlet.

Loved the video "How to be Minnesotan." I had to look up the Minnesota State Fair. Amazing! BTW, the "long goodbye" is also a Southern thing and I'm guilty of it.

Glad you enjoyed the video, he did forget a few Minnesota phrases. I've only been to the State Fair once a long time ago, if fact, Garth Brooks (when he was just getting famous) was performing that night. I didn't have tickets, but could hear him.
Wonder if some bars still have these...………….not in my area.
