Winter Bluegrass Weekend


Every time I hear about a music festival like this I am proud to be a Minnesotan. We get a lot of talent to come to our cold state!

March 2nd-4th The Winter Bluegrass Weekend is happening at the Crowne Plaza in Plymouth. Over 3,000 people attended last year.

There are still tickets for the main act on Saturday, Steep Canyon Rangers at 9:30PM. This act is the current touring band with Steve Martin. There are workshops, jam sessions and artists playing all weekend.

See the website for more details HERE.

 

Because music can make your heart melt.

Lutsen, MN – Weekend Trip


Need to get out of town for the weekend? Want to hold on to the winter for a little longer?

Head up to Lutsen, MN. They have gotten over 21 inches of snow in the last 9 days.

You can now go skiing on the beautiful mountains in northern Minnesota. Many of the resorts have ski and stay packages and rooms open because until 9 days ago they were missing the snow needed to have really great ski runs.

Check out more information here.

Fish Fries Minnesota


It is Catholics favorite time of the year Lent! The Catholics give up eating meat on Fridays but they get to have something delicious instead: FISH!

You don’t have to be a Catholic to enjoy the fish fries around the state during the Lenten season. Welcome one and all to the fish fries!

A full list can be found at The Catholic Spirit.

Here is a few of my picks: 

St. Albert the Great Catholic Church
2836 33rd Avenue South
Minneapolis

612.724.3643

4:30-7:30PM

They feed about 700 people every Friday night.  It is the Twin Cities most popular fish fry. They have bingo and many other activities but be prepared to stand in a line.

Any of the VFW’s are a great spot to go because you can get beer as well. Richfield VFW is always highly rated. Beer always enhances the flavors of the fish or at least that is my perception.  Knights of Columbus Hall in  Bloomington is another hall open 5 to 9 PM at 1114 American Blvd. Call (952) 888-1492 for reservations.

If you are looking for something other than fish, head over to Our Lady of Guadalupe in St. Paul from 11:00-6:30PM. You can also get them to-go by the dozen. On 401 Concord St.

My best suggestion is to try out a parish in your community. There is nothing better than meeting your neighbors over a great meal.

I would love to hear about your Fish Fries. Leave me a comment or find me on twitter @mplsgossipgirl.
