Uncover Hidden Bars of the Twin Cities
We'll spend three hours exploring a curated list of four of Minneapolis’ best bars. We won’t just be drinking there, we’ll be learning the story of the bar, meeting the bartender, and trying a new drink. Once you’re settled in with your drink, I’ll have a story to share with you about what helped make this fascinating city what it is today. The tour’s unnamed guest star is YOU. One third drinking, one third history and one third banter make this a thirst-quenching, educational, and social experience that has a little something for everybody. For this tour to work, the city needed two key things — a best-in-class bar scene, and a fascinating and varied history. Starting with the bars, Minneapolis is in the midst of a golden age of drinking. Long gone are the days of alcohol smuggling, speakeasies and temperance groups. No, today Minneapolis is dotted with distilleries, breweries and hidden havens for imbibing. Since the days of the lumberjacks, Minnesota has always put a premium on hand-crafting. Today’s embodiment of that is in our locally made beers and spirits. The care and craftsmanship put into these venues deserves to be seen, and it’s where we’ll be exploring on our tour. As for our history, Minneapolis is not lacking. Running through Minneapolis’ history can be a dizzying experience, like reading a book by an author who should get gone through a few more edits.
Walk Saint Paul with an expert local guide
I'll tell you the story of Minnesota in three hours as we explore the capital city. St. Paul has such wildly diverse architecture, geology and stories. With just three hours I can touch on all of Minnesota’s highlights using the incredible backdrops of our capital. We'll start at one of the largest Cathedrals in the USA, then head through the neighborhood where F. Scott Fitzgerald was inspired to write "The Great Gatsby." There's a great local coffee shop I just HAVE to show you, so we'll duck in and grab a coffee before continuing on our journey to... ...the Minnesota State Capital, one of the crowning achievements of capital architecture. Once we've explore the Capital Mall, we'll go Snoopy-hunting in downtown St. Paul (the area is filled with statues of famous "Peanuts" characters). We'll continue on toward the Mississippi as I share with you some of the events that have shaped this city. After a long walk, we'll have earned the beer I'll buy you to finish our experience.
Driftless Bicycle Adventures
We customize and lead individual and small group bicycle tours in the Driftless Region, starting in the area around Viroqua or La Crosse. We will visit boutique cheese producers (this is Wisconsin, after all) Amish bakeries, one room school houses, dairy pastures, quilted barns, homesteads, and scenic rivers. Around every twist of the road, every bend of the river, there is a new marvel to behold.
Play with Clay in a Fanciful Studio
I will give you a tour of Clay Squared which is a working studio in two types of clay- Ceramic and Polymer clay. You'll be surrounded by my sculptures and my husband's tiles and we will both tell you about our art. Then I'll teach you a few easy techniques in polymer clay that even the non-artistic can pick up right away. Next you will get to explore my endless scrap pile to add to your own creations and make a finished piece which could be anything from a decorative frame to a light switch cover to a sugar bowl. I can bake your creation for you while you wait (20 minutes) or you can take it with you to bake yourself. I always create right a long side you- sometimes on large commissions and sometimes on small pieces. I will also share any info you are interested in about the North East Minneapolis Arts District which is home of over 400 studios. Other things to note Everything you learn is step by step and Layl is all about positivity. Polymer clay is magical and very forgiving. We tend to run a closer to 2 hours than an hour and a half but let me know if you need to be done earlier and we can make it happen.
Goat Yoga on the North Shore
Goats+ Yoga+ Nature We are one of the top fun and unique things to do in Duluth and the North Shore! Join us in the beautiful Northwoods making memories with our adorable mini goats. You will be surrounded by fresh air in a grove of cedars while our yoga teacher guides the class through a one hour gentle yoga flow while the goats prance around and hop on you during poses. Feel free to just sit and take photos and cuddle the goats during class. There is half an hour allotted after class for additional play and photos. The number one question people ask is if the goats pee and poop during class. Yes they do! However, they poop little pellets like rabbits and are easily swept up quickly by our many goat wranglers we have on hand. We have sanitizing wipes and a hand washing station to clean up afterwards. Please bring your own yoga mat or towel.
Art With A Spark
￼Can you stand the heat? Do you feel like learning a valuable skill that few people possess? Want to make a unique piece of art or repair a household item with your own two hands and some sparks?! Sparkin’ Suz is offering “make and take” classes in metal fabrication where not only can you gain valuable experience welding, but also take a home creation of your own to prove to others you can indeed weld ;) Whether you’re just getting out of diapers or you’re just getting into them, whether you’ve been welding for years and want to get back in the groove or have never even seen a welder, whether it’s for therapy, fun, or to get some arc time gaining experience toward learning a skill you can make a career out of.. Everyone is welcome and will definitely feel those sparks fly! ;) Well, not exactly feel them as I will have all necessary protective gear to keep you safe. One person, two person, and group sessions available! We’ll start the class by going over some safety. Either before you come to my class you can pick out a project you’d like to build, or just work on scrap pieces I will provide. The class will be what you make it, it’s very individualized! We will work on setting the machine, running beads, then finally working on whatever project you’d like! It’s a different experience with new things to learn every time you strike an arc. Let’s build something together!

SUP/Paddleboard Yoga on the most popular lake in Minneapolis
Enjoy a fun and relaxing yoga practice on Bde Maka Ska (pronounced "BaDAY-Ma-KA-Ska" and formerly known as Lake Calhoun)! It is the most popular lake in Minneapolis to paddle or sail while taking in the view of the downtown skyline. We will meet at the boat rental facility, called Wheel Fun Rentals. The address is 3000 E. Bde Maka Ska Pkwy. There is street parking available on the Parkway, Knox Ave, James Ave or 31st St. Once you get to the boat rental facility, skip the line and head straight to the shore where the paddleboards are lined up. I will be waiting with my white and purple paddleboard. We’ll get our boards and go over safety procedures and paddling basics. Personal items such as keys can be stored in a locker that is available for a fee or I can store them in a dry bag. There will be a short paddle then we’ll anchor our boards. Class will start with a brief meditative centering, then gentle to moderate poses modified specifically for a paddleboard. Savasana (yogi nap) will follow the flow, where you'll lie down on your board and find inner stillness while gently swaying on top of the water. We'll paddle back to the starting point where you can get your things and head out, or you can keep the board for another hour and continue the adventure on your own. Due to liability you cannot bring your own board. Message me for dates not listed or private groups.
A Walk, A Candy Shop, Art & A Theater
We will meet behind the Affordable Cleaners parking lot by the Mesabi Bike Trail. We will partake in a sneak peak at the Rouchleau Mine Pit on our way to cross the highest newly constructed overpass bridge in Minnesota. The Tom Rukavina Memorial Bridge is a destination in itself. The bridge offers a world class view of crimson colored shorelines, topped with the forest green of the trees and centered with deep blue waters. It is simply breathtaking!!! From there we will return back down the trail and venture down the historic Chestnut Street of Virginia Minnesota over Rail Road Avenue along the dark red brick buildings and authentic architecture of the early 1900's and on to the recently renovated family owned and operated homemade candy store with all the extras to go with it; soda-pop fountain, ice cream, gifts and of course a whole lot of merriment! So the sugar doesn't go completely to waste, we will tour the Lyric Center of the Arts, the theater pending construction, and also, their art gallery. Then on to see the world record holding largest loon located on Silver Lake, next to a transformed train depot. Finally, back down main street to the parking lot to retrieve the vehicles, exchange contacts and give farewells. Other things to note The weather is always a concern, please dress for the weather in case of rain or snow. We will also be walking a distance of little over a mile one way. If there are health concerns please address the pace of the group. No one will be left behind.
Outdoor Landscape Painting
Ever wanted to try outdoor oil painting in scenic Minneapolis and St. Paul? No experience is necessary! You will be personally guided through each step in creating a painting outdoors with all equipment provided. Assistance will be ample in class sizes of 2 or less! Once onsite, you can pick the scene of your choice. We will discuss composition and how to quickly and accurately draw your idea on the canvas. Then we apply a wash in color as we improve the drawing and then finally "hammer in" the final coat of thick color oil paint to finish your masterpiece! You will leave with a finished painting in 2 to 3 hours time. You will experience the "full version" of painting outside in oil paint and turpentine the same way the master painters have done for 100 years. It is challenging! The next time you walk through the museum with a friend you will be able to share the incredible insight of having gone out and done it yourself! Pretty cool!
Northwoods Guided Mushroom Walk
I will meet you at a predetermined location near bayfield. We will hike different types of forests to find various edible, beautiful, or interesting mushrooms. Learning how to identify them along the way. Guests will be able to keep large amounts of choice edible mushrooms (depending on season you will have better chances at this) and will learn about many different plants, animals and of course mushrooms. I will provide snacks for a break and then we will return to your rental, hopefully weighed down with chanterelles, black trumpets, hen of the woods and many many more. Other things to note The best time for finding edible mushrooms will be July through late October. However, there are interesting things to find all summer long and I can tailor our walk to your interests. Guests should dress for hiking and bring a basket to fill!
Themed walking tours though historic Saint Paul
I offer an array of historic walking tours through downtown St. Paul and in the Historic Hill District which features Summit Avenue, one of the most celebrated streets in the nation. I am a classically trained actress and frequently do my themed tours through the lens of a historic figure. I bring deep scholarship, improv skills and over 15 years of professional guide experience in my re-telling of the history of iconic city sites. My themes focus on architecture (Guide to the Gilded Age) literature (St. Paul Literary Crawl) music (Jazz Spots Tour) and stories and lore that are hiding out in the open (True Confessions Gangster Tour, Historic Beer Tour and All Hallows’ Eve Event). Many of my events are through the lens of a Victorian Nun who started the first Fine Arts Conservatory in the state of Minnesota. Others are just presented from my own vantage point and include my selected readings of world class writers. Often the tours include a select beverage from the site I start and finish my tours at a historic boutique hotel. Additionally (and just for fun) there is a five question quiz for the chance of a novelty prize. Most are about 90 minutes and since they are often on foot and outdoors are Covid friendly. However, I offer on inside experiences as well.
