The weather looks like it’s going to turn around just in time…so if you’re looking for something inexpensive to do this weekend you should check out Art-A-Whirl in NE Minneapolis! We’ll be out on Saturday listening to music although we don’t have a concrete plan yet so if you go send a text and maybe we can meet up.

From the NEMAA Press Release:

More than 500 artists will showcase new work in painting, photography, sculpture, mosaics, mixed media, wood, glass, textiles, ceramics, jewelry and more. This self-guided tour allows visitors to meet individual artists and get an up-close-and-personal account of the creative process at work. All artwork is for sale to the public.

Art-A-Whirl Hours:
Friday, May 14th: 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday, May 15th: Noon to 8 p.m.

Acme Comedy’s Birthday Club February 18, 2010

Filed under: Upcoming Event — Nikki @ 1:18 pm

In early February we went to Acme Comedy courtesy of the Acme Insider email. This month in the Insider email a Birthday Club providing FREE tickets was highlighted. All you have to do is figure out when you want to go (any Tue-Thur show during your birthday month) and fill out the form to make the request. They say you will receive an email confirming the event for yourself and up to 5 (yes…FIVE) guests!

From the Insider Email:
Acme’s Birthday promotion is a great way to help you celebrate “one more year” and our nationally touring comedians will have you laughing like a kid again in no time. Bring some friends…loosen the tie…let the hair down…and get ready to laugh…It’s on Acme! There’s nothing like comedy to start YOUR new year on the right foot and Acme’s got some fabulous acts to make this year the best year ever.

We think this sounds like a great way to celebrate your birthday, especially since it is good all month! Has anyone tried it? If you do, let us know how it goes. Our birthdays aren’t for a few months yet!!

Filed under: Upcoming Event — Nikki @ 8:21 pm

Chris came across an interesting looking event coming up in Minneapolis on Saturday, March 20, 2010 that we wanted to post about in case anyone is interested in attending.

Obscura Day is “a day of expeditions, back room tours and hidden treasures in your hometown” according to the website. The Minneapolis event begins at 4:00PM and is at the House of Balls museum. Click the link to register!

We’ve never attended but are looking forward to in the future. Unfortunately, Nikki has plans to be out of town this year so we’re unable to attend. If anyone goes, report back in the comments and let us know what you think!
