Shop and stroll
It's supposed to be 67 degrees
on Saturday. So take a walk through uptown as part of the American Heart Association's Start Up
campaign (11 a.m. to 8 p.m.). First go to Cowboy Slim's Saloon (1320 W Lake St) where you can pick up a goodie bag (for the first 200 people) and a list of the over 40 businesses
offering deals. At Local Motion
(2813 Hennepin Av., Mpls., 612-871-8436), you'll get 15 percent off purchases and be eligible to win door prizes.
Speaking of Uptown, get yourself to Columbia Sportswear
(3014 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls, 612-825-6213) tonight at 6 p.m. for the grand opening. The first 50 people will take home a free lightweight high-tech Mobex
backpack worth $100. While we're not exactly outdoorsy, we've had a billion compliments on ours this week. All weekend, enter to win more goodies and a Boundary Waters trip.
Our favorite jazzy group Rare Medium
is playing on Saturday night (9 p.m. to 1 a.m., Tryg's
, 3118 W Lake St, Mpls). So grab a seat and a glass of wine and relax.
Handbags, shoes and scarves...oh my! Add in some jewelry and mark it all down by a whole bunch and you'll have the Spring Accessory Extravaganza
at Arc's Value Village Thrift Stores
(today through April 21, four locations
You know you're going to try the new Grain Belt Nordeast
. So swing by Surdyk's Liquor Store
(303 E Hennepin Av, Mpls, 612-379-3232) for a six or 12 pack or find it on tap at a watering hole in its namesake's neighborhood. Cheers!
