With all the hype surrounding Super Bowl LII we can’t help but think how much fun it was to have our city on the map, so we had to do a roundup now that it’s all over. The game itself turned out to be one of the best actual games in recent memory – and congratulations to the Eagles and their Super Bowl title, which was well deserved (just being nice – SKOL Vikes). Let’s take a look at everything that happened, from the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage, to all those celebrity sightings, and much, much more in our Super Bowl roundup. […]

Despite a busy Saturday full of fun car stuff including MN C&C, the Walleye 1000, and the Kannonball Fun Charity Rally, I couldn’t think of a better way to unwind than by meandering around Excelsior Commons looking at more cars. The 4th annual 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance is hosted on the serene shores of Lake Minnetonka in the heart of Excelsior, MN and invites a hand-picked selection of rare vintage cars, motorcycles, and boats.

Cuban Film Festival – Thursday March 24th The Minnesota Cuba Committee, in partnership with the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul and the Cuban Film Institute, presents the 7th edition of the Minnesota Cuban Film Festival. This Thursday marks the fifth film screening in a series of six. Just bring your Spanish translator because the films are in Spanish. Macy’s Flower Show – Now until April 3rd You don’t need to go to Denver to enjoy some good greenery. Over the next few weeks the eight floor of Macy’s downtown will come alive with grasses, tropical flowers, cacti, and other green and not-so-green flora. It’s too bad we don’t have a VW bus in the MHCC fleet. It would fit this event perfectly. Smoke Signals BBQ and Brewfest – Saturday, March 26th Generally we’re not fan of smoke, whether it’s blue smoke from a tailpipe or any other variety, but we can’t turn down a little smoked barbeque. This Saturday Indeed Brewing is paring some of the finest BBQ with some of their tasty suds at Smoke Signals. Throw in an outdoor bonfire for good measure you’ve got a great trifecta.
As a motorcyclist myself I hope nearly everyone has seen this bumper sticker on Minnesota roads. If you haven’t you might want to keep reading on. The weather is starting to turn and that means it’s time to start sharing the road with everyone. On an average day in 2014 there were a reported 215 crashes on Minnesota roads, that is per day! Of these crashes there were a reported 361 fatalities which has slightly decreased year after year, but unfortunately there were 46 motorcyclists who lost their lives in 2014. While all motorcyclists know the dangers of riding, people should to be aware of how to help avoid crashes and makes sure lives aren’t put in danger when they don’t need to be. The best information we can offer is that if you are a motorcyclist make sure you are riding smart. Always wear the appropriate riding gear and please for your own safety wear a helmet. The Office of Traffic Safety has a great list of tips to keep in mind as Spring approaches: Motorists are advised to watch carefully for motorcycles in traffic and always look twice before turning or changing lanes. Riders are advised to wear full, brightly-colored protective gear, including a DOT-approved helmet. Riders should travel at safe speeds, pay attention, maintain a two-second following distance and ride sober. Riders should seek safety training. We at Morrie’s care about the safety of motorists on the road and want to make sure you and your family are safe [...]

MMA at Mystic – Friday, March 4th The last fight we saw at a casino was between two seniors trying to stake their claim on a lucrative penny slot. This weekend you can witness more intense fighting when the MMA heads to Mystic Lake. We’re not big on fighting, but you probably knew that since we’re looking for a Volkswagen Hippie Bus. Bedrace for bridging – Saturday, March 5th There’s nothing quite like snuggling up in a warm bed --- while hurtling down a snowy ski slope. If this sounds like your idea of fun you have to check out the Subway Bed Race for Bridging.

A shortlist of upcoming events that piqued our interest Adult Coloring Club – Thursday, February 25th Who says coloring should only be for kids? The Coloring Club MPLS gives artistic adults an opportunity to put their colored pencils to use, which is good for people like Amber (one of our graphic designers) who have “coloring degrees” and want to keep up on their skills. Throw in $5 beers from Eastlake Craft Brewery (the event host) and coloring sheets from local artists and you can’t go wrong. WinterFest at the Union Depot – Friday, February 26th When he was in town last week Vice President Joe Biden had nothing but good things to say about St. Paul’s Union Depot.
