November 2019 Get the Folk Out!

Feel that? Yeah, me too. It suddenly got reeeeeaal drafty outside, and now, unless it involves a bowl o’ soup, a cup o’ tea and a mug o’ whiskey, I’m already struggling to get outside for it. Even if this year has had some just gorgeous foliage. Yep, we’ve hit that time of year where […]

September 2019 Get the Folk Out!

Sorry, this one’s a little late & after the long weekend, friends. I’m guessing (hoping?) I’m not alone in September sneaking up on me. Last night, I saw the first leaves of the year drop with a gust of wind… but then, my spirits were picked right back up watching everyone go to school for […]

March 2019 Get the Folk Out

I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but after a relentless month of winter that was the most winter that ever wintered, I’m ready to Get the Folk Out even more than I thought I’d be. Especially since we’ve got a TON of foodie events this month. What exactly do we have in March? […]

My Date With Baruch Spinoza

New Jerusalem, currently playing at the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company, brings to life the dynamic ideas of Baruch Spinoza. In short: it’s like bacon-wrapped macaroni-and-cheese on a stick.
