March 30th – 31st: Longfellow weekend events


Our neighborhood has a lot of great people putting together really great events for us to kick back, relax, and just enjoy. Check out the awesome happenings this weekend in our hood.


  • Minneapolis Parks knows how to throw a good kid party. This one shouldn’t be any different. Meet Peter Rabbit, hunt for eggs, visit a petting zoo – all at the Minne-Hop-Hop Family Egg Hunt at Minnehaha Falls Park.
  • Also for kids, Boneshaker Books has its weekly Saturday storytime. Sometimes crafts and songs are thrown in for good measure.
  • Work on your bike at Spokes during its open bike shop session. Bring your bike, they provide the tools.
  • Author Barbara Jensen talks about her book Reading Classes, a study of class-bias in the U.S.
  • Full night of music at Harriet Brewing. Check out String Theory, Bitteroot Band, Farmhouse Band, and Gabe Barnett & the Big House Rounders.
  • Gravel on Mud brings “three parts punk, two parts irony, one part punk” to the Riverview Cafe.


  • Cap off your weekend with a glass of wine and jazz with the Zacc Harris Trio at the Riverview Wine Bar.

Coming Up This Week – Highlights

  • Fashion design for seventh through twelfth graders. Learn how to deconstruct, up-cycle, and modify clothing.
