Sonia got into grad school at USC, and we’re going to Los Angeles at the end of July. This is the first time I will have left the land o’ lakes without any specific plans for coming back, so I’m trying to get out more in these last few months.
Enter Rock the Garden. On June 20th — which marks two years since the famous first date at the Cabooze — the Decemberists, Calexico, Yeasayer, and Solid Gold will be playing at the Walker Art Center’s sculpture garden. I got tickets this afternoon, I’m excited for the bands, the weather, the beer, and the big spoon and cherry.
Other things to do before I leave:
- Picnic on the stonearch bridge
- Saint Paul Saints game
- Boundary waters
- Regularly karaoke
- Saturday night movie at Uptown theater
- Dine at the Lexington
- Bowling party at BLB
- Canoeing on a lake or the river
- Read in a zoo for a day
- Bike from downtown St. Paul to downtown Minneapolis
Any more ideas?
