We really want to go to Rome, but will settle for 50 to 70 percent off of home furnishings and accessories this weekend during the first ever garage sale at Roam
(Thursday through Saturday, 813 Glenwood Av, Minneapolis, 612-377-6465).
We've had cocoa on the brain this week, but the new exhibit at the Minnesota History Center
(345 Kellogg Blvd W, St Paul, 651-259-3000) will help you truly appreciate the sweet stuff. Plus the gift shop is packed with locally made treats.

Sure, we have an untouched copy of Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom" calling to us, but we'll be browsing the 2010 Twin Cities Book Festival
(Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., MCTC, 1501 Hennepin Av S, Mpls) with Alexander McCall Smith, used book sellers and sing-a-longs (for the kids...and grown-up Glee fans).
, Post- handbag launch
and OPM's Rehab fashion show
. Sheesh, it's going to be a busy one.
