Are you looking for something to do this weekend? It is supposed to become a winter wonderland overnight.
There will be an outdoor ice rink at Southdale Mall in Edina. It is open through February in case you don’t want to brave the cold this weekend. The best part is it is free and open during all mall hours.
A different kind of chilly activity is the Sweet Science Ice Cream Tasting. This Saturday they are bringing back their popular Old Fashioned Cocktail ice cream. They also make cherry vanilla bitters ice cream and rye flavored. There will be non-alcohol flavors as well like toasted coconut and cinnamon. The event runs from 4-7pm and is free. It is at the Big Watt Cold Beverage Co in Minneapolis.
Now is also a great time to get out and look at all the twinkle lights around town. There are many great locations around the cities. Eden Prairie has an amazing light display that is synchronized to music. You can drive by in your car while listening to 88.1fm and see the lights dance to the beat. It’s open weeknights until 9:30 and weekends until 10pm and located at George Morgan Drive & Donegal Cove, Eden Prairie Shakopee also has a winter wonderland set up. You can walk through the display and even grab some hot cocoa on your way to meet Santa. It’s at 921 Shakopee Avenue East, Shakopee.
Have a safe and warm weekend.
