Through Valentine's Day, enjoy a bottle of champagne (and we don't mean sparkling wine) at Barbette
(1600 W. Lake St., Mpls, 612-827-5710) for wine shop prices, so a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte champagne
is just $42. Why? Because you don't have to sit at home just because it's January. And everything's better with bubbles.
Sale time! Everything at Stephanie's
is 40 to 60 percent off. Shop either of the two locations (758 Grand Av., St. Paul, 651-690-3802 and 5005 France Av. S., Edina, 612-929-2087) through the end of the month.
This might make us weird, but this fundraiser sounds like fun: Climb for a Cure
. You can hike up 50 flights of stairs in the IDS for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Call it creative indoor exercise while raising money for a good cause. Win-win! It's not until Feb. 7, but you should probably start practicing now. Your calves and bum will thank you.
This is also a plan-ahead event: Next Tue. is (finally) Inauguration Day. Just because you're not going to D.C., doesn't mean you can't party, MN-style. Celebrate change together at Seven
. Doors open at 7 p.m., themed cocktails (what is in "The Obama?") and free hor d'oeuvres while they last.
