While we won't be naming any pets "Antigone," the Greek mythological story is told in a profound lyrical style in "The Burial at Thebes"
(through Nov. 6, Guthrie, 818 S 2nd St, Mpls, 612-377-222). It's dark, but deep, fizz friends. There's singing, but mostly head-spinning family drama that will make your life seem so uneventful... in a good way.
We just don't understand all of you cold-weather-loving people who have been complaining about the October heatwave. The Hoigaard's 44th annual tent sale
(noon to 9 p.m. on Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, 5425 Excelsior Blvd., St. Louis Park, 952-929-1351) is for you! Get 60 percent off on downhill and cross-country skis, snowboards, winter apparel, boots and accessories. The event also includes food, music, great prizes and plenty of other fun to help kick off the season. We might be by to look for snowshoes, which we haven't tried, but it seems like fun? Whatever, it better not start snowing yet.
The demonstrators at OccupyMN
have been out on Government Plaza for almost a week. It's refreshing to see people pushing for change. Get some inspiration from their predecessors at the new 1968 exhibit
(through February 20, 2012, Minnesota History Center, 345 Kellogg Boulevard W, St. Paul, 651-259-3000). Sing it, "You Say You Want a Revolution..."
