Just spent a week in my lovely home-state. It is also the birth place of Bob Dylan, Winona Rider, and Prince.
With all the traveling I haven't got any torch time in so I'd thought I'd share some of my favorite Minnesota places.
Glass of course first...
First place where I fueled my glass addiction
My mom also sent me a link to The Studio at Rush Creek in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Looks like they have some awesome classes.
While your in Maple Grove you can stop for some yummy sandwiches where I used to work- CG Ham's
I spent a lot of time in Minneapolis going to concerts at First Ave (In the Movie Purple Rain for all you Prince fans) and the Quest Club, which was started by Prince as the Glam Slam, and is now known as Epic Night Club.
The Cedar Cultural Center is also pretty awesome. It features music from around the world and is a short walk from Hard times Cafe, a grungy vegan-vegetarian cafe where I used to go sit and drink coffee and play chess with some interesting individuals.
I also used to frequent the Weiman Museum.

Pretty cool building huh?
The shops in Uptown are fun, and there is an Art Fair there every summer. I also used to eat at Chang Mai Thai there... mmmm pad thai.
And what is a tour of Minneapolis without the cherry-in-the-spoon?
