We all “find” ourselves in different ways.
For some, it’s over a nice cup of Java at a quiet coffee house in Uptown. For others, it’s while canoeing in the Boundary Waters, or hiking some gorgeous mountain path. For the 20-something guy from Chicago in local Jewish playwright Alan Berks’ play “Goats,” premiering regionally at the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company March 5 – 27, 2011, the pilgrimage to self-discovery begins while backpacking through Europe, leads to a job for a cheesemaker in the mountains outside of Jerusalem, and ends… well, you’ll have to see the play now won’t you.
Goats, a comedy set with 160 goats in the mountains outside Jerusalem, was a hit in a shorter version at the Minnesota Fringe Festival in 2004, and features local actor Ryan M. Lindberg in the lead role.
So… as always, TC Jewfolk has the hook up. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to see Goats at the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company (performance date & time is your choice). All you have to do is answer this question in the comments to this article…

Byerly’s Cheese Shop is my favorite cheese shop.
Yeah I guess I agree with Sorah. Byerly’s or Lund’s.
St. Paul Cheese Shop on Grand. It is Cheese-licous.
Also, every Rosh Hashanah, they offer a kick ass apples, honey and blue cheese sandwich. We always walk there for lunch during the children service at temple.
Whole Foods far surpasses the selection at Byerly’s, though I am partial to the cheese selection at The Wedge because of the emphasis on locally produced cheese. And The Wedge makes awesome, authentic baguettes that scream for some brie.
I keep meaning to go to the St. Paul Cheese Shop and the one on France Avenue in Minneapolis, but I’m afraid I’ll be much, much fatter of stomach and thinner of pocketbook than I am by avoiding them.
My favorite cheese shop is St. Paul’s Whole Foods – my cheese guy Joe is the best at picking out the best stanky cheese! Thank you, Joe!
And the winner is…. Madeline! I’ll email you with more information about your tickets to “Gots” – the rest of you should buy tickets and check it out!
Just saw Goats at MJTC this afternoon. Awesome one-man show. Don’t miss it!
