TWISP | This Week in Saint Paul: Monday, March 16 – Sunday, March 22, 2015

St. Patrick’s Day has arrived in Saint Paul. There continue to emerge versions of the St. Patrick image that conflate stories which go beyond the tale of leading rats out of Ireland. I am not going to try to deconstruct or reconstruct those narratives.

TWISP | This Week in Saint Paul: Monday, March 9 – Sunday, March 15, 2015

We made it through the state high school hockey tournament without a snowstorm. Are we now ready for the month-long spring tease? I expect this week will sport parks and college campuses with people wringing sun out of the sky like it was an Arizona vacation and wildly guessing which coat to wear out of the house. Like I mentioned last month, we don’t measure our winters by the groundhog nor the calendar.


It has been a roaring March! We are also having another great season of Lowertown Reading Jams. This Wednesday, March 25, promises to live up to the reputation.
