Dark skies have finally cleared up, so put on a happy face. It’s nearly time to leave the jackets behind as we embrace a week of sunshine-filled days!

 

Right through the weekend, Mother Nature takes care of our moms with weather just perfect for getting out with her or the whole family. Brunch, of course, is a tested and true start to the day, and you can still grab a table at select hotspots:

 

  • Red Cow Restaurant & Bar – 9:00 AM-2:00 PM. Four sweet and savory, sharable courses.
  • Edina Grill – 7:00 AM-3:00 PM. A family-style affair featuring Chantilly Cream French Toast, Gouda Hash, and other innovative brunch selections.

 

Don’t dine and dash, though. Keep the love alive and the day going strong with good times in and around home. You’ll find events scattered across the day and extended weekend. The range of times, places, and activities means you can organize one or many get-togethers in celebration of mom.

Area Events & Happenings

 

With Taste of Edina kicking off an early weekend this Thursday night, it will be tough to finish out that last day of the workweek. Still, it’s tough to ignore the lure of top area chefs who will gather at The Westin Edina Galleria to share their signatures and culinary innovations. Salut Bar will be there. Pittsburgh Blue, too. So will the area’s best breweries and over thirty of their designer suds.

 

Of course, you can always grab mom for Taste of or any other community event for an outside-the-box, Mother’s Day treat. With last-minute Leno tickets, live local music, and more within easy reach, there’s no competing with Edina’s versatility and range!

 

 

When your mother asks, “Do you want a piece of advice?” it’s a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.

If you missed the buzz, Centennial Lakes Park is now officially open, and with sunshine slated the whole weekend through, it’s primetime to get out and get some deserved Vitamin D. It will still be a bit longer before the Farmers Market and Movie Nights in the Park make their return, but you can still enjoy games, paddle boats, the putting course, and more. The park is open until sunset each day until Memorial Day when summer makes its unofficial return and things really start heating up.

 

With the weekend looking so great, it’s a shame to be cooped up inside. Between days strolling the neighborhood and basking in the park, venture a bit further down the road to Hopkins Center for the Arts’ first annual May Day on Main. Saturday evening, from 3:00-7:00 PM, Main Street will be transformed into an outdoor celebration of live music, food trucks, art, and more, including a special performance by Jefferson Starship. (Unfortunately, no Grace Slick in this visit, but the band’s classics belted through Cathy Richardson are plenty worth the add-on cost).

 

And when you’ve reached peak bronze from outdoor play and need to step inside, The Saint Paul RiverCentre hosts the international Festival of Nations this Thursday through Sunday. Plan for one day or return for multiple because there will be a lot to digest. And we’re not just talking the more than 35 food stands; expect performances, demos, and handmade artisan crafts, too. With more than 40 cultures represented at the Bazaar, you might even find that sentimental something for Mother’s Day next weekend.

 

Yup, it’s next weekend. Be sure to get those brunch reservations made early for mom’s special day!

If you hear sirens or see a heavier presence of city vehicles at the Southdale Center this Saturday, don’t be alarmed. It’s Vehicle Day in Edina, and a fleet of the city’s police cars, firetrucks and more will be on display. Swing by, hop in the driver’s seat, and meet some of the men and women who lend rhythm to the heartbeat of our city.

 

Elsewhere, the weekend offers commotion of various other types, with blasts of big band, explosions of fauna, and a Kentucky Derby celebration unlike any other. Complete with food trucks, mint juleps, and even ponies for pictures and petting, the Kentucky Derbatante sold out last year, and select tickets remain for this year’s soiree. Grab the reigns while you can!

 

 

Through literacy you can begin to see the universe. Through music you can reach anybody. Between the two there is you, unstoppable.
