February 22nd, 2017 by

Home and Garden Show – Saturday, Feb. 24th – 26th

This 60 degree weather had us all ready for Spring right? The best time to plan is early, and that’s why the Home and Garden show is heading to Minneapolis this weekend.


The Sota Lumberjack 5k Trek – Saturday, Feb. 25th


This isn’t your typical 5k due to the fact that pit stops are not only allowed, but encouraged. It’s the first annual Sota Lumberjack 5k Trek, happening right in our backyard at the Brookview Golf course. First to cross the line gets a handmade axe, but everyone else gets a couple beers – so we’d consider all parties involved to be a winner at this event!

Race Day Schedule:
February 25, 2017
11:30 AM-12:45 PM – Registration/Packet Pick-up
12:50 PM-12:55 PM – Introductions
1:00 PM – Shotgun start


Arctic Market: A Winter Pop-Up – Sunday, Feb. 26th


“With a rotating selection of makers, the Minneapolis Craft Market is the best place to discover emerging artists and new design talent of the North.” Need an excuse to get out of the house on Sunday and feel productive? You can swing down to Lakes & Legends Brewing for a pint and some on-site shopping.

A great event for kids to explore and learn more about the world of technology! “Every February, The Works Museum brings together Twin Cities experts in technology and science to inspire kids and families. Kids are natural engineers, full of questions such as why, how, and what if I did it differently? Tech Fest gathers corporations, educational institutions and other nonprofits working in engineering and technology to share their work  and inspire kids. Together, we encourage kids to keep asking those questions and to pursue their passions for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).”


Stories from the Pacific Coast: Mariah’s Ride Down the Baja – Thursday, Feb. 23rd


This seems like an awesome story that could motivate you to get out on an adventure. “Join us on Thursday, the 23rd at Angry Catfish Bicycle and Coffee Bar for a wonderful recap of Mariah’s trip down the Pacific Coast and through the Baja. She’ll be taking us through her journey and gear, sharing with us what worked and what might need some slight adjustments before the next big adventure.”


Gopher Hockey – Friday, Feb. 24th


Maybe you’ve never been to the Mariucci to see a hockey game? There’s nothing better than a border battle with the Cheese to the East, such as this weeks Badger vs. Gopher showdown. Tickets appear to still be available, so grab your Gopher gear and scream it out, SKI-U-MAH!
