The time has come to start working those summer plans into our schedules! It's hard to believe now, but green grass and budding trees are just around the corner.
An excellent weekend vacation option, for those of us in the Twin Cities, can be found in the southeast corner of our fair state: Historic Forestville

The sold out show filled First Avenue with hundreds of fans eager to celebrate 89.3 The Current’s 12th birthday on Friday evening.
After the stress of a long and tumultuous week, the excitement in the crowd was palpable and it was easy to see why. The national and local lineup of bands and musicians were some of the station’s favorites including Jay Smart
, Black Market Brass
, Stand of Oaks

Manchester By the Sea
is a grim tale — we see Casey Affleck as Lee grinding it out as a maintenance man for a Boston slumlord, not much going right for him. His daily life consists of getting hammered after a day of drudging work before collapsing in his one room, cell-like apartment. Casey is obviously damaged, and...
The new year has arrived which means plenty of movies to look forward to in the coming weeks and months ahead.
While there may only be a few movies I'm looking forward to in the summer months, it feels like a lot more can be said for winter, spring and fall. Of course, surprise movies tend to pop up in the middle of the year, but as for now, these are my most anticipated movies of 2017.
