This weekend brings many things, including Earth Day and the first night of Passover on Friday.
It also brings a couple of crawls in the form of a semi-annual art crawl and a neighborhood crawl. And finally, it brings comedy. Sounds like a great weekend if we do say so ourselves.
Check it all out in our Pick 3 Events, and enjoy!
This year marks the 25th year of the St. Paul Art Crawl, produced by the St. Paul Art Directive. Since its inception in 1991, the Crawl has expanded out from its Lowertown roots into other areas of downtown St. Paul and beyond. It is a semi-annual, three day event that now attracts 300 participating artists and more than 20,000 visitors to each event.
The Crawl is happening on Friday from 6:00 pm until 10:00 pm; Saturday from 12:00 pm until 8:00 pm; and Sunday from 12:00 pm until 5:00 pm. Metro Transit is providing free rides to the Art Crawl, too. All you have to do is answer two quick questions to get your pass (and you can do that by clicking here). And for all the information you need about the St. Paul Art Crawl, such as the history of the event and a map, please click here.
The 3rd Annual Spring Crawl is happening in one of Minneapolis’ hottest neighborhoods: the North Loop. From 10:00 am until 7:00 pm, you can discover and rediscover what makes this area so special. Participating retailers will be offering sales, prizes and special events. And in true “crawl” fashion, get your map stamped at seven locations and you can enter to win gift cards and merchandise (you can pick up a map at any participating store).
You can also enjoy free pedicab rides all day long by DIVI UP.

What a great way to wrap up the weekend. Head over to Pepitos in South Minneapolis to see possibly the next up-and-comer in local comedy. Or, if nothing else, to see some stand-up. And if you want to jump on-stage yourself, you can do that, too.
The fun starts at 7:00 pm, and if you can’t make it this Sunday, plan to hit it on another Sunday because it happens every Sunday. And, if you so desire to hit the stage yourself to try out some new (or old material), you can do that. You just need to show up at 6:00 pm when open mic sign up begins.
