This weekend is your last chance to see "Scattered Light"
by Jim Campbell before it heads off to its next destination... Sydney, Australia! On Friday, you'll be able to walk through, enjoy music and libations, thanks to the Minnesota Museum of American Art Patio Nights @ City House
, (7:30 to 9:30 p.m., Upper Landing, St. Paul, free admission). Trust us
, it's a truly en-light-ening art experience.
Help your wardrobe swell with a little help from Mighty Swell
. At the Summer in the City sale (10 a.m. to 7 p.m., through Sunday, 3109 E 42nd St, Mpls), the grooviest vintage vendors/bloggers will offer a carefully edited assortment. Need another incentive? Sample of our new obsession -- 10,000 Licks
on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The Minneapolis Aquatennial! Tour de Fat (for bikers)! There are a lot of things to do outside this weekend. However, if it's a/c and soulful singing you seek, there are surprisingly still tickets available for Sia
(tonight, $20, First Avenue,
701 First Av, Mpls, 612-338-8388). Warning: "Breathe Me" makes us teary.
On Sunday afternoon (3:30 to 5:30 p.m.-ish), we'll be hanging out at Starkey Hearing Foundation
gala red carpet in St. Paul. Here's the plan: Hang out with Whoopi Goldberg, Verne Troyer, Maria Bello, David Arquette, Patricia Arquette and many more celebs who will instantly become our best friends. Follow us on Twitter
for updates. And, dear universe, please, please, PLEASE, let the Arquettes wear some crazy brother and sister ensemble.
