Phantom Of The Opera at the Orpheum tonight. One word, amazing.
Up next on the bucket list is Jonah And The Whale a Musical at the Guthrie Theater, a 7th House Theater production. It was, wow. Touching, beautifully orchestrated and seamlessly executed. It’s a different, more intimate way to see this kind of #talent, and so very worth it. I can’t recommend it enough.
Happy Winter Solstice! Or longest day of the year! Or maybe you call it Yule and celebrate with a Midwinter Festival. It’s the day that marks the beginning of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere. No one does a more beautiful solstice in Minnesota than the American Swedish Institute. Tour the Turnblad Mansion, feast at Fika, […]
Since this is also a big travel weekend, I thought I’d Bucket List Shoyu at the MSP airport. If you’ve walked through MSP lately, you’ve seen it, even if you didn’t know what it was. It’s a modern Japanese restaurant. I was there for breakfast, which seems weird but they had things that were more […]
If you’re having trouble getting into the holiday spirit or if you just love being festive, I recommend stopping by Macys Holiday Lane in the Nicollet Mall downtown. It’s up the road from the Minneapolis Holiday Market and you can stop by the Elf display upstairs after and have something from Mrs Claus Bakery. It’s […]
If you are you big fan of sweets (like me) and you’re looking for something festive to do today, I completely and totally recommend coming to the Union Depot Holiday Bake Sale in St Paul. This is the second year they’ve done it and it is incredible, they really have gotten better every year! Coffee, […]
Up next on the bucket list docket is the rock’n’roll xmas spectacular from the Chanhassen dinner theater. Its this huge shindig where these incredibly talented musicians do parodies of really popular songs, like ones from the Kinks the Beatles, Weezer,… like turning ACDC into All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth (I […]
Next up on the bucket list is A Christmas Story, the Musical at the Ordway in St Paul. Its had a pretty incredible run here in the Twin Cities, mostly because it’s such a classic! The show has had rave reviews and doesn’t disappoint! Complete with the Ralphie’s Red Ryder Bee Bee Gun, the Northern […]
Tonight’s bucket list edition has actually been one of the most fun during this holiday season, the Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s Wild and Swingin’ Holiday Party at the Pantages. They are such incredible musicians and so charismatic! True entertainers AND the perfect way to get into the Christmas mood. Fun fact: they played my all […]
The second part of tonight’s festivities at the Union Depot… The Christmas tree lighting, fireworks, hot apple cider and being serenaded by Kat Perkins! You might know her from The Voice but she’s a Minnesota native favorite around here (and looked adorable!) It’s hard not to fall completely in love with the Depot as they’ve […]
This is a new one for the bucket list; the Minneapolis Holiday Market. It’s a replacement of the former Holidazzle parade (now the Holidazzle Village) in the Christmas, err, Holiday Market. I say that because of the fiasco about the stickers / mugs. They modeled this after the European Christmas Markets like Christkindlmarkt, complete with; […]
