With winter’s unpredictable highs and lows, it’s nice to have the warmth and consistency of home. We hope you’re getting to meet new neighbors and friends and that you’ve taken the opportunity to enjoy our many onsite amenities. If not, plan a meetup and make a day of it in our clubhouse and gaming room. You can always catch Tuesday Night Trivia nearby, but it’s so much more convenient to host a game of your own. Play some pool, whip up some snacks in the kitchen, or watch the Wild continue to dominate the division—our clubroom is a perfect sanctuary for when the weather gets frightful.

 

If you’ve resolved to have more fun in 2017, come on down or head on out. Onsite and around Onyx, you’ll find opportunity to tap into whatever fuels you. For those who are energized by a good workout, hit the fitness or yoga room to feel the burn, and release post-holiday tension as you unwind in the sauna. Golf enthusiasts will want to venture out to Braemar Golf Course on Saturday, January 21 as Callaway provides a demo of new clubs and gear. It’s never too early to get geared up for the season!

 

If art (or wine) is more your fancy, plan to visit a few days earlier for Wine & Canvas Wednesday, and mark February’s calendar for Paint & Pint night. Both events include food from the Tin Fish, so bring your appetite, a creative eye, and a love for wintry libations.

 

Art comes in a range of forms, and if you’d rather ingest the comedic variety, we’ve got that, too. With local showcases and big names like Jerry Seinfeld taking stage this weekend, make your date night a hilarious one from the start.

It’s National Skating Month and we’ve got to admit, we were novices ourselves until just last week. The blades, the hard ice—it was all more ominous in our heads. In reality, it was a lot of fun, and there’s opportunity out there for the inexperienced and pro. You can sign up for lessons, work toward fitness goals at Skatersize & Coffee, and discover a range of rink-based fun in between.

 

To get outdoors and experience Mother Nature’s ice, National Skating Month coincides perfectly with Winter Trails Day in Fort Snelling National Park. Strap on your skis, shoes, or even try out a fat bike. Grab s’mores by the fire, lunch at one of the many visiting food trucks, and enjoy the often unpredictable elements of a Minnesota winter while it’s here.

 

 

We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything, than when we are at play.

Happy 2017, Onyx! We hope the new year has been good to you so far and that you’re keeping warm, making memories, and enjoying wintry Edina as much as us. If you’re new to the area or just didn’t have opportunity to visit the Ice Castles in Eden Prairie last year, they’re back and growing bigger by the day in nearby Stillwater. We made the trip and recommend booking your visit for sunset, when the lights really come to life to ignite the ice in dancing reds, greens, and blues. Pack warm clothes and make an evening of it; they’re here through the month.

There’s adventure around every corner, so keep your eyes open behind those thick, winter scarves. Summer or winter, Braemar Golf Course always tops our list. This Friday and again on February 17th, join any one their half-hour-staggered, snowshoeing expeditions, beginning at 6:00 PM. Equipment is provided and an all-you-can-eat fish fry follows, leaving little room for indecision in our minds. Time to snowshoe up!

Snowshoe purists might stray further from the pack, though you’ll need a lift to take you to the area’s top spot for newbies and experienced enthusiasts. Hyland Lake Park’s Richardson Nature Center is the perfect retreat, just minutes from home, offering trails, rentals, and lessons to ensure an immersive escape. There’s even a Full Moon Snowshoe with S’mores planned for this Friday, plus many other events scheduled throughout the season. Keep them in mind the next time you’re feeling the need to attune with nature.

Chill as the outdoors might be, wine by the clubroom fire can always wait another day (we’ll still be here); let winter winds whisk you out to balmy 20 degree temps this weekend and make the start of 2017 the start of fun and adventure!

Art offers inspiration, and we draw it from all around. Nearing the midway of its performance schedule, A Beautiful Planet helps you tap into that well via unprecedented perspective of our world—consider it added inspiration for your New Year’s resolutions.

And while little compares to the artistry of our natural world, floor and screen give a good go at it when Edinborough Park invites us in for a weekend double-dip.

 

Nothing burns like the cold. But only for a while. Then it gets inside you and starts to fill you up, and after a while you don’t have the strength to fight it.

– George R.R. Martin
