Hands down, hanging out with Jameson of Lessons with Coffee for our Twin Cities Travelin’ series has been amazing, but on my Birthday! Double win! I had an amazing day, because St Anthony Main is one of my favorite places in the cities, but I’ve never been to Guthrie!
We started the day off with breakfast and mochas at Wild Roast Cafe, because Aster Cafe didn’t open till later, and you know us, teachers, we are early birds. That’s actually is only true on Jameson’s part, because I have been feeling like sleeping can easily be my superpower these days. A little about the food at the cafe. The mochas were amazing, but too sweet in the end. My creme brûlée french toast was more like a french toasted half a loaf of home made bread, but delicious. So yes to the toast, no to mocha! Unless you really like sugar!
Jameson also surprised me with some Birthday presents. I knew what they were going to be, but had no idea what they would look like. But from now on, I demand that everyone gets Marc Jacobs dresses and Coach purses on their Birthdays!
Then we walked across the Stone Arch Bridge towards Guthrie, it was perfect fall weather in July, which ended around 1 pm. I think by now Jameson and I have mastered the art of taking self-shooters and selfies. Sometimes we set my camera up on a picnic table, sometimes on the foundation of an electric tower. Tripods? No, haven’t heard
Guthrie was amazing and a little psychedelic. I always loved that place for the huge picture of Anton Chekov which you can see from across the river. Russian Culture is something I’ve always been proud of.
Inside we walked the halls decorated with photos from the plays past, took pictures, and said hi to some ghosts.
If you haven’t been inside the Guthrie theater, you must go today! Now only to see a play there!
And of course we walked down to the Mills Ruin Park. Every time I go there I think about what life was like 100 + years ago. And sometimes I want to be taken to that era for a day, detox from all the social media, the phone, the modern day life.
And that’s a wrap! I am so sad I’ll have to miss out on the next 2 weeks, because I am leaving for Colorado on Friday. But I will be back in time for Glamorama! So don’t miss me too much, Twin Cities!
