Books, food, music and a great volunteer opportunity. This is my kind of week.
Kids Menu (FREE!)
Sat. Nov. 7; 9:30 a.m.; Schaar’s Bluff Gathering Center; Dakota Regional Park, 8395 127th St., Hastings, MN
If you have kids that refuse to eat, this workshop is for you! It’s been proven that kids who actively participate in the preparation of food are more likely to try new foods. Chef Bonnie will explore and teach ways to make simple, delicious foods with your child. I, myself, never met a food I didn’t like.
Kitchen Sync ($7/person)
Sat. Nov. 7; 9:30 p.m.; Bunkers Music Bar & Grill; 761 Washington Ave. N., Minneapolis, MN
Because Sha Na Na was clearly busy, Stereo Kitchen, a TC cover band comprised of M.O.T.’s, will be playing for your listening pleasure. Rejoice as they cover your favorite 70’s, 80’s and 90’s hits. You know you want to.
WE WANT YOU! (FREE!)
Tues. Nov. 10; 5:50 p.m.; Second Harvest Heartland; 6325 Sandburg Road, Golden Valley, MN
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN, FOLKS!! With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Beth Jacob Synagogue is looking for a few good men (and women!). For Beth Jacob’s Mitzvah Month, BJC 20s/30s Group will be volunteering at Second Harvest Heartland to help prepare food for those who are hungry!
Writing Rabbi (FREE!)
Wed. Nov. 11; 7 p.m.; Temple of Aaron; 616 S Mississippi River Blvd, St. Paul, MN
Come see Rabbi Charles Sherman, the Senior Rabbi at Temple Adath Yeshurun in Syracuse, New York, talk about his inspiring new book, The Broken and the Whole, which chronicles the journey of Eyal, his oldest of five children, who suffered a massive stroke at age 4, leaving him quadriplegic and vent dependent. Now an accomplished artist, Sherman’s son paints with a paintbrush in his mouth. Sherman’s novel outlines “the strategies and coping skills [he has] learned and continue[s] to learn can help others carry the broken pieces of their lives, with confidence, understanding, and sometimes even joy.” This is a can’t-miss event which begs the question: what did you do today?
