Not only is she pretty and smart, but she's also fun.

Due to the nationwide celebrations of Ritz Crackers' 75th Anniversary and the STRONG association everyone has between eating Ritz and fun fun fun, the Ritz Co. decided to commission a survey to see which cities in America were in fact the most fun. The study looked at variables such as strength of the music and food scene, number of public parks and disposable income among some of the largest cities in the country. 

According to the "Ritz Cracker FUNomenal cities" study these are the rankings,

1. Seattle, WA

2. Minneapolis, MN

3. San Francisco, CA

4. Chicago, IL

5. Washington D.C.

6. San Jose, CA

7. Los Angeles, CA

8. Boston, *MA

9. San Diego, CA

10. New York, NY

This is what Ritz had to say about Minneapolis specifically:

"Minneapolis' park system is considered to be one of the best in the United States and, in addition to hundreds of playground, ball fields, and tennis courts, the area also features an incredible 69 ice rinks, most of them outdoor, and four amusement parks. When it comes to spending on fun, residents of the Minneapolis-St. Paul area choose to spend a greater-than-average amount of their disposable income among 50 of the largest cities in the study. This includes spending on sporting events, musical instruments, camping gear, video games and movies, and participating in sports."

Still no word on how Minneapolis fared on the crunchy or crumbly tests or whether it goes well with cheese.
