Not many outdoor events during the cold winter months here in the Twin Cities are that appealing to me.  But when you mix creativity, architecture, surprise, experience and community, I'm there.  And, it's called the Art Shanty Projects, so grab the family, your boots, hand-warmers and get out there.
 
 
Opened for the season, Broders' patio. Haven't been? Then please do yourself a favor, sit yourself at the counter, order a rose' and watch and smell the chef grill up some charming nibbles.  If your 'buds can handle some heat, the Grilled Shishito Peppers are a must!  The many times I have planted myself here, I feel a bit of a CA Wine Country vibe.
