Bombarded with online sales? Put on your big girl shoes and get out there this weekend for some old-school shopping. Or, better yet, get a new pair at Pumpz
(Galleria, Edina, 952-926-2252). Select shoes will be marked down 30 percent through Monday. These L'Autre Chose "Jeans Ballet Flat" will be $293 (originally $419).
We've been known to skip around the lake. Thanks to Caribou Coffee
, we can now hopscotch
on Peavey Plaza (11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today, outside of Orchestra Hall, Mpls). They're putting up a 3-D "board" that leads you through an 800-foot path of twists and turns. Naturally, there will also be sampling of some sort of caffeinated beverage.
We're getting super excited about Northern Spark
, the upcoming arty party all-nighter (June 4 to 5, Minneapolis and St. Paul). We'll discuss more next week, but, in the mean time, they want YOU. Volunteer
for one of the three-hour shifts and you'll get a free T-shirt plus a sense of civic pride. We really dig the label "Smart City Walker." We soooo want to sleep over at the Walker
