Sweet Retreat on the T.V.
Luck be a lady tonight, for bakery owner Robin Johnson. She competed on the Cupcake Wars, which debuts at 7 p.m. tonight on Food Network. She's one of four bakers who competed for a chance to have their cupcakes at the World Series of Poker. Roll that dough, baby!

Hemingway on Hennepin
If you like a literary reference as much as we do, make a ressy at Solera Cocina de Espana this week as they honor Big Papa. Options include a whole fish dish inspired by "The Old Man and the Sea" (Tuesday through Sunday), a paella cooking class taught by Executive Chef Jorge Guzman ($40 per person, Saturday), a pig roast ($45 per person, Sunday) and a screening of movie of "The Sun Also Rises" on the rooftop (Sunday, dusk). Whatever you do, drink the Solera Signature Sangria. We're sure Hemingway would have liked it a whole lot.
