A List of To Do's

Usually when I think of a To Do list my head starts to spin with the millions of things I need to accomplish in a day! Don't get me wrong I am a huge lover of to do list!  I love crossing a task off my daily list, it just makes me feel accomplished for the day (yes I am a huge nerd/control freak?)

Well the to do list I am about to share with you today is a completely different type of To Do list.   This is a fun list full of fun places to experience in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas!  A list full of new experiences, and places I must see/experience!  

Think of this almost as a bucket list for Minneapolis, although I think new things keep getting added daily!   So lets take a look, shall we?

Many of these are bars, restaurants, theaters, museums and summer events! 

Minnesota Music Cafe
Psycho Suzies-Bar
Minnesota Science museum
Minnesota Children's theatre
Minnesota and Como Zoo-I don't know about you but I am still a little kid at heart and love going to the zoo! 
Love those otters! 
Pier500 is a great restaurant in Hudson Wisconsin, fabulous Happy Hour with a great Patio!  This was our location for lats Friday's Happy hour!  Guess I can Cross this off! 
St croix river
Taylors falls
Treasure Island Casino-Could be interesting, gambling is not my thing!  But I am all about the experiences! 

Cooper-Local Bar
Bike to Minnetonka-Beautiful Trail, Perfect since the weather is getting nice!
Cannon Valley Bike Trail-Great thing about this bike trail, you can bike to one of my favorite wineries!  The Cannon River Winery! 

Ordway: Beautiful Theatre in St Paul (Capital of Minnesota, and Minneapolis's Twin City!) 
I saw my first ballet at the Ordway, that is where I fell in love with Ballet at the age of 3! 
See plays at both the State Theater
and the Orphium! 
Both beautiful theaters right down the street from my apartment!  I used to perform Nutcracker at the State Theater when I danced in Minneapolis!  One of the best experiences of my life!  And seeing Mamma Mia and the Orphium was a treat! 
Grand ol day
Aquatennial fireworks
Williams Peanut Bar-Fun bar in a part of the city called Uptown!
Stella's Fish Cafe-Great rooftop, and a great place to meet friends! 
I went to an impromptu happy hour here!  What better way to take in the view of Minneapolis?
Nyes Bar 
Gashaufs Octoberfest-No need for an explanation
Golfing- I have been told it is a great sport, I guess I am missing out!  Better learn how to play!

Looks like I have my work cut out for me this summer!
