Don't Reduce. Refuse

I wrote a blog post about a year ago explaining how you could opt out of receiving pre-approved credit card offers in the mail. This very same topic came up the other day, and I realized for the first time that the opt-out worked beautifully. Not only does it keep junk out of my mailbox, but it reduces waste too.

Check it out.

47th and Where?

I've lived in Minneapolis for over 3 years, and I realized today that I don't know this city at all. Kate was nice enough to give me a biking tour of south Minneapolis, and brought us to the little neighborhood pocket of 47th St and Chicago Ave for some amazing ice cream at Pumphouse Creamery.

If you haven't been, go. Now. It's that good. Now the only problem is figuring out which restaurant in that neighborhood to visit next: Cafe Levain? Pizza Biga? Ba Gu?

I saw Adele perform at the Theatre de la Jeune Lune (my new fav theatre in the minne) last night. For a 20 year old, her voice has amazing depth and personality. Think Amy Winehouse with neither the craziness nor drugs. It's the sort of voice that makes older men reminisce about their teenage years, and young girls giddy about the cute boy sitting next to them.

In other words, definitely check her out. (and don't forget to check out her MPR in-studio performance, which should be updated soon)
