MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — This isn’t just any weekend. A lot of you have an extra day because of the Memorial Day holiday. Jason Matheson has some ideas on how to fill up your weekend with fun.
MN History Center: Toys of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s
First up, get your play on at the Minnesota History Center, where they have an exhibit of all of the best toys from the Baby Boomer generation. They’re all there, from Gumby and the Easy Bake Oven, all the way through the ever-famous Mr. Potato Head, whose star rose again in the ’90s thanks to a big appearance in the movie Toy Story. The exhibit opens on Saturday and runs through next January.
Tin Fish Restaurant
I always love to throw in an option for those of you who like to indulge in a nice meal (or at least snack) during the weekend. This week, I’m highlighting The Tin Fish at Lake Calhoun. It’s simply one of my favorite places during the summer. Fantastic people watching.
Mini Golf at the Walker
If the words “mini golf” fill your head with images of tiny windmills and even tinier water traps, you should definitely check out the Walker Art Center’s artist-designed mini golf course. Here you’ll do battle with a maze game, a “Gopher vortex,” and even a giant foosball field with garden gnomes. It opens on Friday and runs throughout the summer.
