Gold Medal Park

Parks & Geology

After all the clucking I’ve been hearing about the rain, I thought it was a good time to show what good the rain has done on the #mnbucketlist. Stop by the Gold Medal Park Mill District in Minneapolis! It’s pretty wet but give it a few days and the colors will radiate.

Food & Drink

One of the most beautiful restaurants on the #mnbucketlist, is Bacio in Minnetonka. So many Italian and Mediterranean options, it’s impossible to pick just one. Definitely a great stop.

If you’re in the Edina area and need of a new spot, I highly recommend Pinstripes. Crossed it off the #mnbucketlist tonight. Beautiful atmosphere and divine dishes. It’s also great for bowling and bocceball. — at Pinstripes Resturant & Lawn Bowling.

Kona Grill

Food & Drink

Scratching the Kona Grill off the #mnbucketlist tonight. I can’t believe I haven’t been there before! The food is awesome, especially the asparagus (go figure) salad and the tomato bisque. It’s beautiful inside, too. If you haven’t been, make a plan to – or come with me!

If you are looking for a new hangout (in the Excelsior area), I would suggest trying the 318 Cafe (three eighteen cafe) if you haven’t already. It’s fun, trendy, have great live music and they are kitty corner from Excelsior Brewing.

Hurricane Grill & Wings

Food & Drink

Saturday lunch at the most tropical, beach-like place we could find, Hurricane Grill in Minnetonka. Not a good place for a vegetarian or vegan, like myself, but if you are a#wings fan, it’s worth a go.

Spending the night with the Minnesota Orchestra seeing Eric Whitacre’s Gather At The River. Absolutely beautiful music from the chorale and Orchestra. P.S. Equus was incredible! A must see, talent at its finest

Excelsior Brewing Co.

Food & Drink

Started the day with a drink (see last post) and ended the day with a drink! Gotta love hanging out in a random garage, drinking moonshine. Lol, don’t worry, it’s just a Big Island Blonde from the Excelsior Brewery.

The Good Earth

Food & Drink

Need a healthy morning pick me up that isn’t coffee? Try Good Earth for good earth tea or, if you’re into juicing, their fresh pressed juice bar. I go for the decaf vanilla white tea. They also have a huge variety of food whether you’re dining inside or grabbing take out.

Schmitt Music Wall

Historical & Museum

Helping other people cross off things from their bucket list at the Schmitt Music Wall, music by Maurice Ravel. A little history: This building became an unofficial landmark when Robert P.

Food & Drink

If you are in need of a new breakfast joint, I highly recommend Hazellewood Grill and Tap Room. Not only because they make a great mimosa but because they also do awesome doughnut french toast with sprinkles and chocolate syrup!
