Tour the Guthrie!

Even if you don't have plans to see a show, it would be a shame to pass up a chance to tour the Guthrie.  We really enjoyed the 10am Saturday morning Backstage ($10 adults). It was amazing to see how the sets are created, the costume shop, etc.  But you don't have to pay to see the Guthrie - it was built for the public's enjoyment.  A ride up the escalator will take you to the Endless Bridge, which juts out 178 feet toward the Mississippi and offers incredible views.  There are unique finds at gift shop, too.



Mill City Farmers Market - a Saturday morning must.

What a perk for Mill City residents!  There's fun and funky produce every week - like the Japanese Salad Turnip, otherwise known as "Hakurei", along with regular veggie staples.  All food groups are represented - in addition to produce, there are cheeses, meat and fish, breads and grains, coffee beans and tea, sweets, and other specialty items.  Food vendors offer a number of breakfast and lunch options that you can enjoy while sitting on the Guthrie steps - take in the the weekly entertainment or just people watch.  We have connected with some great local artist there.   

If you're lucky you'll get to see the weaver from Peru - it's a real treat to watch this talented artisan practicing his craft.


Stone Arch Festival of Arts - June 19 & 20, 2010

It's been years since we visited this art festival, so we were surprised at how much it's grown.  Along with the usual jewelery, ceramics and paintings, there were a number of unique items - such as resin furniture and spun copper bonsai trees.  We ordered 3 custom size gallery wrapped pictures from Leon and Tracy of Whispering Impressions.  They do meticulous work, and the pictures turned out perfect.  We will definitely make this art festival an annual must-do.
