If you feel like getting out and about this weekend there are a lot of things to do in St. Paul. We’ve picked out a couple that look interesting.
No, I haven’t been drinking and yes, I realize it’s 14 degrees outside right now. I also know of a good way to forget what the weather is like for just an hour or so: The Marjorie McNeely Conservatory Winter Flower Show. It kicked off back in October and wraps up in March and if you haven’t been yet this year you should check it out.
The hours are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and admission is free, although they ask that you make a small donation if you can. The conservatory is located in Como Park at 1225 Estabrook Drive.
2015 Minnesota Home & Patio Show
Yet another way to get a little bit closer to spring – the Minnesota Home & Patio Show – opened yesterday and runs through Sunday. Now in its 36th year, ours is one of the largest home shows in the country.
This year, you can buy a house at the show. Seriously. They’ll have the Tiny Cabin on display, built by Mark Lintula from Glenmark Construction. With a square footage of less than 200, it surprisingly sleeps four. Whether that’s comfortably or otherwise, I don’t know. It also features a kitchen, shower and toilet and is up for sale for $54,000.
The 2015 Minnesota Home & Patio Show is being held at Saint Paul RiverCentre. Today it’s open from noon to 8 p.m., tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and military members and $2.50 for kids 6 to 12 years. Children under 5 are admitted free. Go to the website and you’ll find a coupon for $3.00 off admission.
Saint Paul RiverCentre is located at 175 W. Kellog Blvd.
Catch a Game
The Minnesota Timberwolves will play the Phoenix Suns at Target Center tonight at 7 p.m.
The Minnesota State High School League Girls' Hockey Tournament is going on through tomorrow at the Xcel Energy Center in downtown Saint Paul. Catch it tomorrow morning starting at 9 a.m.
Have a great weekend!
