We love celebrating our community here at Onyx, and it’s especially warming when that same community spills into our streets. Unless you’re waking from some magical sleep, you’ve likely heard that Open Streets on 50th makes its return this Sunday. It’s a full-family affair, and it’s one of the city’s most popular of the year, drawing Edina residents, friends, and our visitors out in full force. New residents: you got here just in time!


All Sunday afternoon, from 1:00-5:00 PM, the .7 mile stretch of 50th between Wooddale and Chowen will fill with dozens of participating vendors, eateries, and yes, a beer garden, too (located in the Red Cow parking lot). They’ll have events and a bounce house for the kids, Pilates and other workouts for all, and face-to-face time with area businesses and business owners.


If you haven’t visited an Open Streets event in the past, there’s an infectious energy in the air that even our pets can’t resist. Leash up your pup and swing by The Pet Zone MN to score some treats and grooming tips for your furry bestie—maybe you’ll even find him a new friend. They’ll have adoptable, rescue pups there, so venture at risk; you might not be able to resist bringing one of those adorable faces home!


Between the music, dancing, live demos, and more, the playfulness of Open Streets will be tough to resist this Sunday, so why even try? Hop a community cruiser and swing by to check out the fun for yourself!

If your Saturday’s looking a bit light, you’re in luck because it’s Museum Day Live! and participating Museums across the country will be opening their doors and providing free admission for all. If you’ve had your eye on one or another but haven’t yet carved out the time to visit, there’s no better time than a free one.


Simply search, select your ticket (each is good for two people), and go. Easy as that, you’ll have cost-free inspiration. From galleries to military reenactments, interactive exhibits, and history told from the ruins of the world’s oldest flour mill, Minnesota’s rich with culture. Grab a free pass and get out to see for yourself.


Looking for (somehow) more creative takes on history? Coming right up!



Study the past if you would define the future.




One of September’s finest points is the onset of fall foliage and, believe it or not, the season’s already in its early stages. It might be a bit longer before crimson and gold leaves reach their peak, but it’s never too early for a scenic, leaf-peeping adventure.


Beginning in the north and slipping to the south, Minnesota’s parks and trails typically peak beginning mid-to-late September through early to mid-October. Not sure where or when to visit? The state’s Department of Natural Resources maintains a Fall Color Finder that’s regularly updated to reflect the dramatic leaf changes around us, and it’s a great resource to bookmark and turn to when planning fall outings. Heading out for a hike, bike, or stroll? A quick look can ensure you’re wringing the most color you can from a fleeting season before the winds whisk it away.


The Fall Color Finder can be a helpful standby as you chart course for some of the many seasonal happenings in the weeks ahead. From Oktoberfests to pumpkin patches, orchards, and haunts of all types, the Twin Cities’ harvest is ripe for the picking, and there’s always a more scenic route to reach it.


If you haven’t yet visited an Oktoberfest, we’re in the thick of season with back-to-back-to-back (to back) celebrations across the region. A trifecta of big ones kicks off this weekend with the two-day St. Paul Oktoberfest on Friday and Saturday, followed by Mill City’s 11th annual on Saturday, September 23rd, and the massive Twin Cities Oktoberfest closing out the three during the first weekend of October.


There are many others before, during, and after the trio, and each Oktoberfest boasts its own take on German staples: brews, live entertainment, and delicious foods. Highlights of this weekend’s St. Paul event include Dachshund Races, Bed Races, and a whole lot of Polka, so don’t delay. Pull up those lederhosen for a scenic trip and tip a stein (or two) to German tradition!

With summer making one last push this past week, you might be feeling the itch of its summertime markets. If so, Linden Hills joins forces with the Minneapolis Craft Market for a double dose of locally made and locally grown goods, creating perfect chance to grab heirloom ingredients and a special something for yourself.


Local flavors flourish in this turn of seasons, so reap the harvest while you can and let us know when you find fall’s best pumpkin-whatever. We’d love some, too!



Of all the seasons, autumn offers the most to man and requires the least of him.
