WAM! No, not the 1980s George Michael vehicle, but the soon-to-reopen Weisman Art Museum
(University of Minnesota
333 E River Rd, Mpls, 612-625-9494). The gala is on Saturday (sold out, but you can still go to the after-party for $50, 10 p.m. to midnight). And, for the museum's official public debut on Sunday, you'll be able to screenprint tees and prints with Bohemian Press (all day), pose during an architectural-inspired Gorilla Yogis session (Washington Av walking bridge, 1 p.m.), see a performance by Ananya Dance Theatre (3:30 p.m.) and by Rogue Valley (4 p.m.). By the by, Frank Gehry, we heart you, in general, and this building
, in particular.
Thanks to Marie Claire
, we are seriously suspicious of most breast cancer charity solicitations. However, we totally believe in the second annual Celebration of Scars
(5 to 8 p.m., Fox Egg Gallery, 3730 Chicago Av S, Mpls). The project
"explores all facets of living with the scars of breast cancer."
Even though we're night owls, we'll get up for glamour. The Red Carpet Glamour makeup event at Nordstrom
, if you must know. From 8 to 10 a.m. (Saturday, Mall of America, RSVP to 952-883-2121). See trends! Try products! Get insider tips! Tickets are $15, but are redeemable towards a cosmetics purchase during the event. Done. Deal.
Yeah, MNFashion Week
is getting started! See one, see them all -- there's a lot on the calendar
! It kicks off tonight, but officially runs October 2 to 9. We're especially excited for the group "Little Black Dress" show. The dress code is pretty obvious...and classic.
We're going to be in the audience of Twin Cities Live
today for Savvy.MN
. Look for our smiling faces on the 3 p.m. (KSTP-5) broadcast. Whaaat? You'll be at the office? That's no excuse! Stay up (or DVR) the late-night replay.
