It is free. The Twin Cities parks systems rank top in the nation, so Harriet Island is just one of many free parks to check out (we also recommend Indian Mounds Park, Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary and Crosby Farm Park). Have a picnic, hike the Mississippi River, photograph Raspberry Island or see if there’s an event going on. Great views of the downtown skyline are an added bonus.

Surly Brewing Co. is a Twin Cities-based craft brewery. Back in 2004, Omar Ansari, an obsessed homebrewer, had the idea of converting part of his parents' abrasives factory into a brewery. With the support of his family, and with the help of accomplished local brewer Todd Haug, they began brewing beer in 2006, named after the anger fueled by the inability to find good beer: Surly was born. Now, nearly a decade on and thanks to the support of Surly Nation, Surly Brewing has become one of the largest and most popular breweries in the state.

History: The Catholic ministry to the Italian-Catholic families began as early as 1874 and were held at the old Cathedral Church in St. Paul located at Sixth Street at St. Peter. Father John Shanley, the assistant pastor from the Cathedral, held these services for approximately twenty families until 1883. Other priests continued to minister to the early Italian families until 1899 when Reverend S.N. Odone arrived from Italy and celebrated the first Mass on October 1st of that year in the Cathedral chapel for approximately one-hundred and fifty families. On May 27, 1901, Archbishop John Ireland officially named it The Church of the Most Holy Redeemer and it was incorporated February 9, 1906
