And, if you find yourself in downtown Minneapolis this month, check out some free music happening at Sommerfest 2010. It runs from this weekend through the end of the month. Click here for a schedule of free concerts.

The concerts happen on Peavey Plaza, before each Sommerfest concert inside Orchestra Hall. The difference is, the concerts on Peavey are free!

You can buy food and enjoy a night of music outside, bring family or a date.

Have a great weekend!
