Finally, cold weather has arrived here in Minnesota. Also, it’s a little over a month until Spring Training starts for the Minnesota Twins. Can’t wait until then to get your baseball fix? The Twins are once again doing their two annual events later this month.
For those who love craft beer (I am amongst that group), the St. Paul Craft Beer Tour is a perfect event for you. Sure, it’s way too cold to do almost anything that requires going outside — but, almost anything does not include drinking delicious beer, especially when there are approximately 150 craft beers to chose from, and the number of samples is unlimited. Yes, unlimited.

Alternative rock band The Maine are headed to Minneapolis and you can see them for the low, low price of FREE.
The Maine are doing an entirely free tour called the “Free For All Tour” and have made Minneapolis one of their destinations.
The Tempe, Arizona-based band will be playing their fifth stop of the 13-stop tour at Mill City Nights near Target Field Sept. 3. The tour is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so there are no tickets. The Maine’s event page says 6 p.m., so get there early to secure your spot. Other stops and information is included on the band’s website.
Ah, it’s that time of year again! The yearly ramp-up before the NFL season begins and the Vikings’ trek to Mankato begins.
This past Saturday marked the 2015 report date for the players, but Sunday was the first open practice held by head coach Mike Zimmer (full schedule here). Practice runs each day 10:30-11 a.m. and 2:45-5 p.m.
The event runs 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. with music, food trucks, games and, of course, beer inside and outside of Insight’s taproom, including their relatively new patio.
Once again, it’s time for the annual Internet Cat Video Festival, held this year at CHS Field, the new home of the St. Paul Saints. This year’s event, hosted by the Walker Arts Center, will feature videos curated by Will Braden, who created the Henri Le Chat Noir videos and the festival’s first winner of the Golden Kitty (People’s Choice) Award.
Besides showing cat videos, the event will also feature: photo ops, art adventures and other “meowvelous” fun. Radio personality Barb Abney of Go 96 will host the event.
If you’re looking for something free to do over Father’s Day Weekend, look no further than Minneapolis’ iconic Stone Arch Bridge.
Would you like to make a difference and eat plenty of donuts? Well, believe it or not, you can.
