Downtown St. Paul is not only an arts, entertainment, and business hub, but is also home to over 8,000 residents who enjoy living in close proximity to the Mississippi River, Rice and Mears Parks, and the community festivals that inhabit those parks every season. One of St. Paul’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, Lowertown boasts historic buildings, a vibrant arts community, and the popular St. Paul Farmers’ Market. All downtown residents are within minutes of every part of the Twin Cities with easy access provided by I-94 and 35-E as well as most of the bus lines serving the region (and Light Rail Transit coming soon). The neighborhoods are also connected by the skyway system allowing convenient access to restaurants, retail stores, nightlife, theaters, and more. (Description from livemsp.org)
There’s something so insider about watching a live radio show! I knew it when my parents took me to the World Theater to see Garrison Keillor as a kid—I knew it last night at the same theater (new name) watching Wits at the Fitz. You feel like you’re in the middle of a big secret—knowing what the people on the radio look like and their gestures, seeing what’s scripted and what isn’t, and witnessing actual heckling! On May 31, Wits offered all that and more.
