** Osseo is a real city, a third-ring suburb of Minneapolis. There was never a Hot Fish Shop there, however - that restaurant was a landmark of Winona, approximately three hours away (and, ironically, closed the week before "[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S10E01Soultaker Soultaker]]" aired).

Minneapolis and St. Paul, and many of their suburbs, are known as "The Cities" by inhabitants of Minnesota and neighboring states. Minneapolis and St. Paul essentially function as one large metropolitan area, hence the name "Twin Cities". However, residents are trying to move away from this image and promote each city separately. St. Paul is slightly smaller and viewed as very friendly, clean, blue-collar, and family-oriented. Minneapolis is younger and trendier, and contains more of the Cities' art scene. Despite the differences, the Cities do function as one metro area.

'''Minneapolis and Saint Paul''' are the '''Twin Cities''' of Minnesota. Minneapolis is the most populous city in the state and situated on the west bank of the Mississippi River, while state capital St. Paul sits right across the river on the east bank and is the second-largest city. Minneapolis is the county seat of Hennepin County while St. Paul is the seat of Ramsey County. This is mildly important for people who live there.

Perhaps it's inevitable given the heat of a Twin Cities summer, but Twin Cities residents eat a '''lot''' of [[SweetTooth ice cream]]. Outdoor cooking is also extremely popular, for the same reason. The region is also known for a particular form of cheeseburger with the cheese cooked into the middle of two patties that have been crimped together. It's called a Jucy Lucy (or Juicy Lucy) and after a long time of being the exclusive product of a pair of working-class South Minneapolis bars (the 5-8 Club and Matt's Bar), it's finally started to develop a nationwide reputation, one that was enhanced in 2014 when President Barack Obama visited Matt's for a burger.
