Who's up for a brisk walk? Here's what the MLA web site has to say: Stroll through the gardens to find magical winter light displays. Buy a s'mores kit to use over a roaring bonfire, warm up with cocoa in the Oswald Visitor's Center and admire the Arboretum's 25-foot poinsettia trees, as well as thematically decorated evergreen trees. http://arbwinter.umn.edu/ Maybe we can figure out how to get a few car pools going from the east side of town. I can take 3 people, 4 if someone wants to sit in the middle back. If there are a few people that want to meet mid way for dinner, we could consolidate cars and leave a few in a restaurant parking lot in Eagan or Bloomington.
Need to find another venue. Happy Gnome no longer takes reservations as of Oct 1. Our party is too big to stand and hope for a table. Watch here for the new location. For those of you who don't have a Black Friday shopping mania tradition, let's get together a take a big breath before the holiday madness begins. Even if you do take part in Black Friday, come and decompress after your day of crowd pushing and deal grabbing. https://www.thehappygnome.com/
