(11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 2400 Third Av S, Mpls, 612-870-3000). Prices start at $200 and up for everything Rembrandt to Picasso. Yessssss, this Modigliani above the sofa would definitely liven things up.
We're proponents of eating Matzel Toff
year-round. For those prepping for Passover next week, you'll want to pick up a box of the matzah, toffee and chocolate confection (created by a former Minnesotan
) at Byerly's, Lunds or Max's
for next week's festivities.
If you're not eating Matzel Toff
on Monday night, don't miss Bill Cunningham New York
. The brilliant movie about the octogenarian street style photographer basically justifies our existence. It will be screened during the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival. We saw it in New York and here's our mini-review
. If you can't make it, don't ruin your makeup -- it's scheduled to return in May
Prepare your outfits (for snow?): MNFashion Week

from last night's delightful CounterCouture/George Moskal show.
