What’s Going On – Week of 8/1/16
Victoria Classic Car Night – Wednesday, August 3rd
This Wednesday night hundreds of classic cars will descend on downtown Victoria, Minnesota, for Victoria Classic Car Night. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this show is a great reason to get out during the middle of the week and see an eclectic mix of cars that you might not see at your typical show. It’s looking like it will be a hot one weather wise, so I recommend bringing a convertible.
Uptown Art Fair – Friday, August 5th through Sunday, August 7th
If you’ve not made it out to an art festival this weekend you’re in luck. The Uptown Art Fair descends upon Minneapolis for three day of arts, crafts and food truck fare. If you’d rather not take your car, long board, bicycle or rollerblades (because these are staples of the adjacent Calhoun area, right?), Metro Transit is offering a free bus pass to the event. You can put your transit savings towards that new piece of art you’ve been lusting after…
Minnesota Fringe Festival – August 4th through August 14th
Every summer performing artists spanning a multitude of disciplines and genres descend upon Minneapolis for 11-days of performances as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival. It’s kind of a big deal too, at least from a stats perspective, attaining the honor of being the largest non-juried festival in the nation. Touting over 895 performance there’s surely a number that tickle your fancy. And probably a few that don’t…
Wayzata Sailing Expo and M32 Match Races – Saturday, August 6th and Sunday August 7th
At MHCC we appreciate all machines that deliver exhilarating, visceral experiences. The M32 match races that descend upon Wayzata Bay this weekend as part of the Wayzata Sailing Expo deliver such an experience. You can catch the action all weekend long from the shores of Lake Minnetonka in downtown Wayzata. Better yet, our friend at Morrie’s Luxury Auto, the event sponsor, can probably hook you up with a ride on one of these incredible machines. Interested? Simply shoot us a note here.
August MNC&C – Saturday, August 6th
It’s hard to believe that it’s already August and that summer will soon be winding down. If you ask me that’s all the reason to make it out to MNC&C this Saturday. With beautiful weather on tap it’s bound to be a busy weekend. Better yet, two new RWB Porsches will be unveiled in in the courtyard alongside a number of other unique models from the storied German marque. Don’t know what a RWB is? You’ll just have to swing out this Saturday morning to find out.
