Twin Cities Live co-hosts Elizabeth Ries and Ben Leber revealed the cover of the debut issue of the Cities South Collection during a live filming at Rascal’s Bar and Grill in Apple Valley on January 27.
The February/March issue features Apple Valley-native Elizabeth Ries and chronicles her career and early introduction to television journalism at Apple Valley High School. She returned to Apple Valley in late January to film Twin Cities Live as a part of the show’s popular monthly “In Your Town” series. The live audience started staking out their seats for the show at 11:30 a.m., and Rascal’s was filled to capacity by 2 p.m. for the 3 p.m. show.
The Cities South Collection spotlights the communities of Apple Valley, Eagan, Lakeville and Prior Lake. The name of each community is prominently highlighted on its own magazine cover, while featuring content from the entire area within its pages.
