365 Twin Cities Summer Tour at Patrick McGovern’s Pub
365 Things To Do in The Twin Cities makes its next stop on the Summer Tour Friday night June 22 (that’s TONIGHT, if you’re keeping track!) at Patrick McGovern’s Pub in St. Paul. Weather permitting, we’ll be hobnobbing with other Twin Citians on the fantastic patio. Come hang out, meet some other folks, and step away from your computer. Get out and enjoy all the Twin Cities has to offer!
We will be giving away a pair of Twins tickets courtesy of our pals at Midwest Staffing, so come out and join us!

Back To The 50’s Weekend
Ladies, put on those poodle skirts, and fellas, it’s time for your best Danny Zuko impression, because the Minnesota Street Rod Association’s 39th Annual Back to the 50’s Weekend is just around the corner!
Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts, the Minnesota Street Rod Association’s Back to the 50’s Weekend will host more than 11,000 streets rods, classics, customs, and restored vehicles dating from 1964 and earlier. The auto show will take place at the State Fairgrounds from Friday, June 22nd through Sunday, June 24th.
While the hot-rods are the main attraction, MSRA’s Back to the 50’s Weekend also offers free games and activities for the kiddos, which includes a Kids’ Pedal Tractor Pull, bungee jumping, climbing walls, music, face painting, and more. For those who might be dragged to the show unwillingly, there’s a Ladies Showcase, featuring fashion, pampering and food demos, and the Cruise-N-Arts Craft Fair. Along with this, each day of the auto show a different band will perform an outdoor concert.
Admission is $10 for adults, and free for kids under the age of 12. $2 advance adult discount tickets are available at participating O’Reilly Auto Parts.
For information on how to register a vehicle for the show, and a complete list of activities, visit www.msra.com. The Back to the 50’s Weekend is bound to be a blast!
