She welcomes students of all ages and experience levels and equips them with mosaic tips and techniques along with all supplies. Then, she sets them loose to create their own projects, from painted tiles to glowing wine-bottle lanterns to mosaics of their favorite ceramics teacher.

With almost a century’s worth of history, the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board's 18-hole courses invigorate golfers with lush scenery and challenging fairway play. The downtown skyline arcs gracefully over the 95-year-old Wirth Golf Club, which tests swinging skills with a tricky back nine, man-made lagoons, and schools of club-snatching kelpies. The regulation-size par 73 links at Hiawatha Golf Club border a scenic lake and its pond-studded grounds have hosted numerous heart-pumping tournaments. Swingers enjoy the walkable layout of the Gross National Golf Club and dreamily divot-repair through the wildflower-accented Meadowbrook Golf Club. Test irons' steely nerves on the Columbia Golf Club’s demanding tree-lined fairways, rolling from tee to tee in an included cart. Purchasers may end the day by applying a 20% discount to goods at the pro shop, proffering replacements for thrown wedges and replenishing tees accidentally used as toothpicks.

In addition to an enormous inventory of beer, wine, and spirits, MGM Wine and Spirits' knowledgable staff can help shed light on not just where things are stashed—but how they taste, what they can be used for, and what will pair well with your dinner. On the website, browse recipes that incorporate booze—and not just in the usual ways. Use bottles of beer to flavor stews and chocolate cake, or learn to make cocktails at home instead of the standard midday office martini under your desk.

The year 1927 saw Babe Ruth’s Yankees dominate pro baseball and the precursor to Big Louie's Bar and Grill—Main Street Tavern—open in Minneapolis. In addition to depicting athletes from that bygone era, the Big Louie’s menu catalogs an array of traditional American bar and grill fare. From boneless wings to fish ‘n’ chips, the cuisine roster has even more depth than the famed Yankees lineup of ’27. The restaurant further establishes its entertainment value by hosting karaoke and bingo and by not allowing recitations of real-estate-law books.

The experts at Massage Lakes are well-versed in a variety of massage modalities, each of which bestows its unique benefits on the body. Their Swedish massages employ light-to-medium pressure to improve circulation and reduce stress, while deep-tissue massages target chronic aches and knots of tension buried in the Mariana Trench of the muscles. Sports-focused treatments help athletes avoid injury to overworked areas of the anatomy and prenatal massages coddle the expectant. And because the therapists agree that––no matter the modality––massage should be an accessible and integral ingredient to their clients' overall well-being, they offer wellness memberships that provide priority bookings and discounts for friends and family.
