I live in a no-man's land of food delivery. Yes there are grocery services, and kind friends who stop by with specialty treats like ice cream and cake, and of course too many pizza choices. But the restaurants with the foods I love see 280 as a barrier. For St. Paul restaurants the fact that I'm just west of 280 is a deal breaker. It's as if they are afraid gravity will let go past 280! They will courier food to Woodbury and beyond, miles and miles away. They refuse my closer destination as impossible. And for the Minneapolis restaurants—you'd think they'd include me because I am west of 280. No, I'm too close to 280. So while I am less than two miles from some of them they see it as more feasible to scurry north or south 10 to 20 miles.
Perhaps I can prevail upon Pauly to bring me some Indian food on his next visit.
