Dining Out For Life

Go out to dinner tonight? Why? Because it is Dining Out For Life where restaurants all around Minnesota are giving a percent of profits to The Aliveness Project. You are going to have dinner anyways right?

Check out the list of restaurants HERE

Because you should.



Art in Bloom

Tonight! The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is hosting “flowers after hours” from 6-9PM.

I went last year and had a blast. If I were you, I would park  at the Wells Fargo parking garage located at 28th Street and Fourth Avenue South. There is a shuttle that will then bring you to the MIA or Valet Parking is $10.

There is a cash bar and live music.

Because its free!


Angel Food- New Bakery from Hells Kitchen

If you haven’t heard yet…. Hell’s Kitchen is opening a new bakery called Angel Food. That will be located above the current restaurant site.

Although, Hell’s Kitchen is a successful restaurant, Angel Food will be a completely separate venture started by the same people.  So, to off set costs they are promoting some deals on the KickStarter website:

Everything looks delicious. And not only will you get some good deals like for $1,000 a cup of coffee a day for life or for $500 be a baker for a day, you will be helping kick-start a company. How cool is that?

As for me, I am going to get some cupcakes for 10$.


because who can resist a cupcake.

Gophers Lacrosse

This weekend the Minnesota Gophers Lacrosse team is hosting the Chris Jenkins memorial tournament at TCF Bank Stadium.

Saturday: Game vs. Illinois 4:00 PM $5 entry fee.
Sunday: Game vs. St. Thomas 2:00 PM $5 entry fee.

This tournament is held to remember a former member of the Gopher Lacrosse family, captain and goalie Chris Jenkins. Chris disappeared from downtown Minneapolis on October 31, 2002 and his body was found in the Mississippi River four months later without any clues as to who was responsible for his death. The Gophers hold their tournament to pay homage to who he was and to keep his memory alive.

The Gophers are taking on St. Thomas this Sunday. This is an important scrimmage for the Gophers because St. Thomas is currently undefeated and won the national championship last year. They have some talent on that team! As well as, the first game this season that the Gophers get to play at the TCF Bank Stadium.

This would be a great game to bring your family and see two of the best college lacrosse teams in Minnesota.

Come support your Minnesota Gophers!
