Travel Minnesota: 24 hours in Shakopee

“Every Hundred Feet The World Changes” ~ Roberto Bolaño

There’s something to be said about taking the scenic route, in both life and travel and the lesson here is, you don’t have to trek very far to find an adventure.  John and I had the opportunity to experience a brief but action packed 24 hours in Shakopee, MN last weekend. This historic city is just across the river from our home in Chanhassen but other than our outings to Canterbury Park, or the occasional trip to Valley Fair when the kids were young, we haven’t had the opportunity to spend much time there. The essence of discovery is something that we embrace so we really looked forward immersing ourselves in this mini-vacation.

Food Month In Review: March 2018

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating”

Artists in the Kitchen Exhibition

“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back” 

There is an ever-present and intense drive amongst artists, restaurateurs/chefs, food writers and influencers to be creators of beauty and nourishers of souls.  The new Artists In The Kitchen Exhibition, happening now at the Textile Center, hits both marks in the most remarkable way.  The exhibit highlights a magnificent display of 50 works by women artists inspired by 50 women chefs and restaurateurs (see the list of participants at the end of the article).  The artists ability to translate unique and powerful culinary experiences through the use of textiles is extraordinary and the outcome is well worth seeing.

Empty Nester Productions: DIY Movie Screen

We are in seasonal purgatory.  That middle place between the crisp days of fall and the eagerly awaited birth of spring in Minnesota.  During these arctic months John and I devote a fair amount of time to discussing our anticipation of warmer weather and the outdoor festivities that spring and summer will bring.
