Onyx: The Gem of Edina
Author: Christopher Hoskins
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.

Area Events & Happenings
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.
