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.
St. Cloud has a fantastic opportunity for you in the form of their tour, which kicks off at 2 pm and runs until 5 pm this Saturday, January 16. The 150 or so beers come from Minnesota and across the...!--more-->

Since the temperatures have officially hit above 40 degrees and we are finally un-thawing from winter’s grasp, I started to search for fun things to do in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area this summer. An event I have heard about time and time again is this weird phenomenon where people pay to throw colored powder at each other, while running. That’s right, the nationally recognized event, The Color Vibe 5K, is coming to the Twin Cities. Not to be confused with The Color Run,...
Minnesota might not be the best place for the full enormity
of the Winter Olympics, but we certainly have made our mark on the trendiest new sport on ice: Downhill Skating. This is the fourth year the slope of the St. Paul Cathedral has been converted into a stage for Red Bull's freshly minted and notably successful experiment (thought to be a $20 million boost to...
Although for some Minnesotans January can be a flurry of busyness and outdoor activities (while for others it's the complete opposite), the 24th should absolutely take priority for the most important Midwest winter activity: drinking beer.
The 2015 Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival has been a growing tradition for Twin Cities beer aficionados: hosting the entire elite cast of our state's breweries (and beyond). The event will offer live music, food trucks, various important beer people, a handful of politicians and much, much more.
2015 will be a great year at the State Fair for those who love Carrie Underwood. The country music superstar just announced
she will be headed to Minnesota on Saturday, August 29th to play at the Grandstand.
In 2005, Underwood won American Idol and her music career began -- since then she has gone on to sell over 64 million records worldwide, she has won six Grammys and to this day has 18 number one singles. So as you can imagine, the Grandstand will be packed on her show date come August.
For those thinking...!--more-->
