This mysterious video seems to get better with each viewing. What is it about the toothbrush that seems to send this feline into another dimension? Thanks to Bits of Win on YouTube for sharing this triumph!
The bloodline of one of nature’s most powerful and fascinating land-bound apex predators is merging with an animal atop the Arctic food chain, the polar bear—yielding a fearsome hybrid referred to as the “pizzly” or “grolar” bear. The breeding of these king creatures is likely the result of habitat overlap caused by global climate change.
It’s poised to be an intense and emotional week in St. Paul and around the Twin Cities as the best boys hockey teams in the state hit Xcel Energy Center for one of the best state tournaments around. That, and state tournament bids get handed out for next week’s boys state basketball tournament at Target Center.

Just when you thought maybe the Wild were done making moves and that this year’s NHL trade deadline would come and go with the Wild keeping their team as is, everything changed.
it’s reflecting on uniquely female experiences that help us bond with other women and laugh during each new challenge life throws at us. It’s what makes us better than men. Just kidding! (Sort of). And it’s also what “Girls Only: The Secret Comedy of Women” is all about.
Since making a trade for Devan Dubnyk, Minnesota has gone 15-3-2 and played their way back into playoff contention. They currently hold the final wild card spot in the Western Conference.
The days are growing longer, the breezes don’t quite feel as arctic, and a crop of new movies is in season. Just last week, I reviewed the clever vampire comedy “What We Do In The Shadows,” and this Friday the new movie from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp is at the Minnesota Zoo’s IMAX theatre.
Will somebody just let Sherlock the poodle into the TV already so he can stopped damaging the end table? Thanks to The 2spoos on YouTube for this hyperactive wonder — and also check out this one of Sherlock getting very pumped over “Air Bud.”
Every Friday, Mike Augustyniak picks up a new cocktail recipe from a local mixologist. This week, he headed over to The Lowry Hill Dunn Brothers to check out another one of their “micro” cocktails.
Only have patience for one vampire movie in 2015? Make it this weird, silly, pitch-perfect mockumentary from New Zealand. “What We Do In The Shadows,” created by one of the minds behind “Flight of the Conchords,” has big laughs before the opening credits roll, and it goes on to take vampiric tropes, place them in a modern Wellington cityscape, and twist them into wonderful B-movie jokes.
We’re sprinting towards the end of February, but March Madness is already in full effect on the Minnesota high school sports scene.

Most college basketball teams are fighting for their playoff lives at this point in the season. But for John Tauer and St. Thomas, this week is business as usual. When a team wins as many MIAC titles as Tauer’s Tommies have, expectations are higher than just hoping for a chance. You’re expected to win.
I have to admit, as a child of the eastern suburbs, I never ventured west of Minneapolis much, if at all, growing up. And now, as a member of the millennial generation, I spend a lot of time exploring the craft breweries of Northeast and the themed restaurants of downtown.

If you earn your paycheck in the Twin Cities news business pursuing fatal crashes, cornered gunmen, chemical leaks, fires, explosions and other forms of unplanned mayhem — then you’ll recognize the voice (blunt, throaty, brief) of a 56-year-old, semi-retired tow truck driver named Todd Carnis.
As a somewhat experienced home cook, I’ve gotten to the point where I feel like I know what I’m doing in the kitchen. I’ve dealt with my share of lengthy and difficult recipes and I don’t typically shy away from learning something new. Case in point: whole wheat blue cheese crackers, pretzel crusted cheese eggs, and bacon jam.
Minne-snow-ta? Not this season!
The Ordway Center For The Performing Arts announced the productions that will make up the theater’s 2015 – 2016 season Monday. This upcoming season is a particularly special one as the organization is celebrating 30 years of theatrical art and musical productions.
The Oscars are over. And while we’re still applauding Patricia Arquette’s acceptance speech and wondering what John Travolta was doing with Idina Menzel’s chin, it’s refreshing to look ahead and consider what movies to watch without all the awards hype in the background.
Hot, then cold, now hot again. That’s how I would describe the Minnesota Wild this season. They started off the season on a run. They won seven out of their first 10 games and shut out Colorado in their first two games of the season.
