Put a ring on it! Or an earring or a bracelet at the Karin Jacobson Design
jewelry sample sale. One of our favorite local talents is having a blowout with slightly imperfect, one-off and discontinued pieces in plastic, leather, sterling silver and gems and faux gold (pictured here). So swing by her studio (noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St NE, Suite 288, Mpls). Items are priced to move for $5 to $200 -- that's at least 50 percent off.
We've rediscovered an old favorite and a new waiter/entertainer at Beaujo's
(4950 France Av S, Mpls, 952-922-8974). On Tuesdays through Thursdays, be dazzled by the stylings of Stephen, who will give you snaps and introduce you into his world of made-up words and jokes. ("Have you heard about the corduroy pillows? They're making headlines all over town.") While you're there, order a bottle of wine, nicoise salad and tomato soup.
Get "Fresh"! No, you don't need a mint. To celebrate its first five years, the Burnet Gallery
at Le Meridien Chambers is celebrating with an exhibit of 10 artists who have previously shown their work their. Get inspired by the latest by Matthew Bakkom, David Bartley, Allen Brewer, Chris Larson, Janet Lobberecht, S. Catrin Magnusson, Sonja Peterson, Megan Rye, Andrea Stanislav and Angela Strassheim. The opening is free (6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, 901 Hennepin Av, Mpls, 612-767-6900).
