What’s Going On – Week of 7/18/16
Minneapolis Aquatennial – July 20th through July 23rd
This week the Aquatennial descends on Minneapolis to celebrate the city’s lakes, rivers and streams via 70 plus scheduled activities. I could list them all off here, but it would most definitely mirror that scene in Forrest Gump where Bubba rattles off all the different shrimp dishes. Just take my word for it that there is a multitude of fun events including the Torchlight Parade, waterskiing shows, sand castle contests, fireworks and more.
Bike Night at MIA – Thursday, July 21
There are most definitely two camps when it comes to bikers. There are people who love them and people who loathe them. If you’re one of the latter you may as well stop reading. If you fancy a good bike and an evening dose of art MIA invites you to bike night, an evening affording the opportunity to ride through the museum (literally), revel with other bike enthusiasts, network with bike groups, indulge in the finest food truck fare and indulge in local brew.
Porsche Club Race at Brainerd International Raceway – Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24
If you’re looking to beat the heat this weekend (at least a little bit) why not head up north this weekend to check out some heart pumping Porsche racing? The Nord Stern Porsche club heads to Brainerd this week for its annual club race. The event will draw dozens of race prepped Porsche from all eras to the legendary Brainerd 3-mile circuit. When you’re done watching cars tackle the fastest turn in America be sure to swing by the charity auction packed with a multitude of enthusiast friendly items up for bid.
Minneapolis Art Car Parade – Saturday, July 23rd
I’d argue that your vehicle is an extension of your values, beliefs and personality. I’d also argue that few cars have more personality than those hitting the streets surrounding the Lyndale Park Rose Garden this Saturday for the Minneapolis Art Car Parade. If you attend you’re bound to see an astro-turf adorned Toyota Previa, action figure bedazzled econoboxes and cars adorned with more acrylic paint than Bob Ross’ entire painting portfolio. If you’re more of a fine art type Morrie’s Luxury Auto has the perfect art car for you. Beware it’s not for the faint of heart.
Hungarian Grand Prix – Sunday, July 24th
If you’re hungry for some Formula 1 racing from Hungary we invite you to stop by Morrie’s Luxury Auto this Sunday for our Formula 1 viewing party. We can’t promise tasty Hungarian treats, but we can promise good company. How can you not be in good company when Maseratis, Aston Martins and Bentleys surround you?
