We had a number of activities during our week ...
History of Minneapolis walking tour with food. I learned things about the Guthrie Theater which make me dislike the new building less. But the old building was better. One of my favorite local beers was featured at one of the stops too :)
We went to see great art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, including an exhibit of 18th century Instagram paintings :)
And we went to an author talk and signing at The Workshop. (Clara Parkes is awesome).
This is the super-special-edition Knit the River skein from the cruise:
Other shopping was done too, including another book of photos from a museum shop.
And shoes. Quite a few pairs, as a matter of fact, including these special-edition Minneapolis Toms from the Mall of America ...
... as well as suede Toms in a favorite color. Seriously, I needed teal shoes and Rose the Gypsy had to get Toms because believe it or not, she did not own a pair before.
I also found a new dishtowel. I have to set a good example for my grandchildren, after all, by keeping a tidy kitchen.
We had special foods galore including (but not limited to) Murray's, Birchwood Cafe, Tavern on Grand and The Oasis.
Oh, and we knit too. I'll post about that later.
