  • Minneapolis Christmas Market
    The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday, but starting in 2014, residents of Minneapolis can begin recognizing that day for something else: the start of the Minneapolis Holiday Market. Taking its cue from similar centuries-old markets around the globe, the Minneapolis Holiday Market generates seasonal spirit within its twinkling setting at the heart of Peavey Plaza. For nearly four weeks, this area transforms into a quaint village that, much like Santa's man cave, smells of mulled wine, cloves, and cinnamon. Visitors begin their own traditions here, especially while browsing the countless handcrafted keepsakes and authentic German items. The selection includes wood carvings, knitted scarves, tin toys, beer steins, and more. Those steins might even come in handy, since food and beverage vendors dole out German beers, pastries, potato pancakes, and other European treats. On a centrally located stage, school choirs, brass ensembles, and other entertainers create a festive soundtrack for the market. Elsewhere, kids activities including scavenger hunts and carousel rides keep kids engaged.

  • Minnesota Orchestra
    Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America?s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times. Concerts take place at Orchestra Hall, where a wooden floor with a one-inch separation from its supporting structure enhances the evening's acoustics, enlivening orchestral sounds and preventing midair collisions between muddled notes.

  • North Star Roller Girls
    In the olden days, racetracks employed ladies on roller skates to deliver axle grease to steam-powered racecars so that they could maintain their blistering pace of 9 miles per hour. When a scuffle between two such ladies proved more entertaining than the race itself, roller derby was born. Today?s Groupon gets the Twin Cities its daily recommended dosage of kinetic estrogen. For $6, you get a general-admission ticket (a $12 value on the day of the game) to see the North Star Roller Girls battle it out in a flat-track roller-derby bout. During the Wild Wild Midwest double-header on Saturday, March 20, at 7:30 p.m., the Banger Sisters take on Delta Delta Di, while the Violent Femmes face off against the Kilmore Girls. This will be the final grudge match before the championship bout on April 10. Customers may purchase up to four Groupons. General admission tickets are good for chair and bleacher seating or standing, but not trackside seating.
