Active Dessert

(Please note time change from original email invite)

The Twin Cities have some of the best culinary talents!
We all love dessert (at least I do!), and we all need to stay in shape.
How about we meet somewhere, take a brisk walk to try some of the areas delectables (ice cream, cakes, or other select sweets [or fruity desserts] )

The short if it?
- Meet at location
- Walk will be about a 15 minute walk (Google Maps)
- Walk will be about10 minutes (brisk walk)
- Dessert will be about $5 and 30 to 40 minutes
- Figure this will take an hour, plus travel

Many of us are busy and don't need to dedicate and entire eve to meetup. This'll take an hour so we can go back to work, etc. Others may decide to socialize together after. Please be on time. We will leave and post location at 7:30 sharp.

We will meet at the above location.
We're going to walk quickly to the place of dessert. This is quick by most standards. If you are tired day of event, come with because activity will wake you up.
Participants should be ready and willing to walk and to have fun! Let's talk and laugh!
The return walk may be more leisurely, depending on how gluttonous we decide to be.

The main thing is the people and trying places we wouldn't ordinarily try... and fun!

This event will be fairly regular, but it won't be posted weeks in advance.
To encourage people to not just drive to the main location, the dessert location won't be released until we start walking. We'll start walking shortly after the event start time.

Location specific info:
Keeping the destination secret (I'll post it after we start walking!), this summer will make the twelfth summer for this place. They make some unique flavored ice creams, sorbets, and even dairy-free ice cream. Come enjoy some delicious summer treats!
We'll be meeting at the corner of E Minnehaha Parkway and S 12th Ave, south of Minnehaha, where the path separates between pedestrian and bicycle. Obviously, I'll be somehow distinguishable (TBD, but I'll note it).

    Hey Everyone. I got here early to check out the parking situation. It's pretty easy. Parking available on Minnehaha going west or on the avenues going north.

    Happy Wednesday everyone!
    I'll meet at the specified location (south of Minnehaha, where the path separates between pedestrian and bicycle) wearing a bright red T shirt, chocolate or charcoal shorts, and dingy-white sneakers.
    I'm looking forward to seeing all of you!

    What is the parking like in the area that we're meeting before walking to dessert? Are there any parking restrictions as to what side of the street you can park on, or any other parking info we should of?

      I'd say "read the signs". It's a park / neighborhood-ish area, so I don't imagine anything to crazy.

    is the walk going through any non-accessible areas for a wheelchair?

    • Justin

      It shouldn't. It's just park walkways absolutely sidewalks.

    I'd love to join but just wondering...can you give us a hint if the destination will still be in Minneapolis or if the walk will end back where we started? I don't have a car and will have to rely on the bus system to get back home to Uptown :B

      Hae-Eun, if you need a ride, I go right thru Uptown on my way home I can give you a lift :)

      Yes, we will start somewhere, walk to get dessert, and walk back, then disband :) Thanks for specifying.

    This sounds fun! I'm actually feeling under the weather, but hopefully be better by Wednesday.

      It will be fun! Thanks for your comment. Wednesday is a ways away, so I'm sure you'll feel better. Have a great weekend, and I hope you have healing and smiles so we can all meet you on Wednesday!
