A year ago, I was visiting Casey in Fairbanks, Alaska with our friend Heidi. Instead of searching for bears, moose and the closest Fred Meyer, today we roamed for margaritas, buskers (there was a decent guitar player today) and Target on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis. I found a used book at James & Mary Laurie Booksellers that was calling my name. Literally, the book title was Joe.
We ventured into Loring Park for a photo, and thanks to Casey’s patience with the amateur photographer, I think we got a winner. (Luckily for everyone involved, it didn’t take as long as this sunflower in Alaska.) What a fun afternoon!
Earlier in the day, the Target Spots–the corporate choir–performed a 30 minute set at the Loring Park Arts Festival in the misty rain. The choir celebrated the morning at Loring Kitchen and Bar with spicy Bloody Mary’s and bottomless mimosas. I also walked away (after paying, of course) with two new awesome prints by Ukrainian-born, Chicago artist Anatasia Mak. Support the Arts!
