Anyone know where I can find cow or pig brains on short notice? Need them by tomorrow afternoon. I'm sure I could order them from a butcher but this only just came up. Clancey's maybe? One of the ethnic grocers?

    I would call Little India or perhaps Holy Land, but they most likely will only carry lamb brains.

      Ah, Holy Land is a good idea. I've definitely seen lamb brains there. I'm not picky about what kind I get. Pig and cow just seemed like the most likely choices.

      Check out a Carniceria on Lake or maybe Dragon Star or Shuang Hur in St. Paul.

        Heading over to the Zombie Pub Crawl, are you?

          Nope. Halloween potluck, actually. I was trying to think of something to take that isn't a dessert.

          I'm not looking to while away the hours or confer with flowers. I just want to fry them up and eat them.
