My simply grand week…

ND Museum of Art Concerts in the Garden

This is going to be a great week in the Grand Cities!  I am looking forward to enjoying all that the town has to offer in the summer.  This is just a sample of my plans for the week… Tonight I have a meeting, but it won’t be without fun and great food, as it is taking place at the new restaurant, Jake’s.  Since I have only been there once, I am really excited to check out some of their food especially the Red Pepper Lavosh. On Tuesday I will grab the family and head over to the ND Museum of Art for the third installment of the 2011 Concerts in the Garden music series.  The Boston-based band and critically acclaimed, David Wax Museum, will headline while local artist, Xavier Pastrano, will open the show at 6 p.m.  Tickets are $5 in advance or $8 at the door, and there is great food including burgers and brats available in the museum’s garden.  With a weather prediction of mostly sunny and 75 degrees what more could we need?

Music made for the outdoors


I am so excited that Blues on the Red will be kicking off the three-part music series this Saturday, June 25, in Town Square! This is one of my favorite events, as it provides a winning combination of great music, food and beverages and lots of fun all outdoors in downtown Grand Forks. I am going to grab some friends and lawn chairs and head downtown for the free event. The June Blues on the read will feature guitartist, singer and songwriter, James Armstrong, from Michigan.  The Deb Jenkins Band from Fargo will open the show at 6 p.m. After the four-hour music show, I plan to head over to one of my favorite downtown businesses for more fun.  Not sure yet whether that will be The Frog, Blue Moose or Rhombus yet, and it may be all three! Two more shows will be coming on July 23 and August 27.  Bands will include Big George Jackson, Lamont Cranston, PeatMoss and the Austin James Band.
