There is a little bit of something for everyone this weekend and it was really hard for me to narrow my choices down. Of course, I only get to actually do one of these things. But if I could, I would do them all. Here are your choices whether you want music, film, art, science or theatre, you have a choice here.
Live Music with Jack Pearson! at Wild RumpusWild Rumpus Books for Young Readers 2720 West 43rd Street, Minneapolis, MN 55410 Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 1:00 a.m.
Storyteller and musician, Jack Pearson (not the Allman Brothers guitarist), will be at the Wild Rumpus on Saturday to celebrate the release of his album, “Googolplex and Other Numbers”. Here’s a video someone made of his song, Googolplex. Maybe he’ll tell some stories, too.
Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.
Are you a fan of Wallace and Grommit? Childish Films is celebrating the work Aardman Animations of U.K. Childish Films can fill up, and it isn’t as much fun if you have to sit in the overflow room, so you may want to arrive early. Doors open at 10:00 and there will be live music and snacks while you wait for the show to start. It’s always a good time.
Pinecone Turkey Craft at HeartfeltHeartfelt 4306 Upton Ave S Minneapolis, Minnesota 55410 Saturday, November 16th, 10 am to 2 pm.
This is an annual tradition at Heartfelt. You and your little ones can make a pinecone turkey with a feather tail. Heartfelt suggests this would make a nice gift, but I think I would have a hard time parting with it. Drop in and make one with your family.

Anne did an excellent review of the Math & Science Fair HERE.
Wellstone Center 179 Robie Street East, St. Paul, MN 55107-2360 Saturday, November 16 @ 4:00pm; Doors at 3:00 p.m.
This is my pick for the weekend, and you can get the details HERE.
Minnesota Children’s Museum 10 West Seventh Street, St. Paul, MN 55102 Sunday, November 17, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
I like to hit Free Third Sunday at the Children’s Museum about once a year. It’s always a fun family outing. My kids tend to prefer the permanent exhibits. If you get there more often than us, than the traveling exhibits are a nice way to change it up. Blue Man Group and Creativity Jam are the current visiting exhibits. Again, Anne did a really great review of the Blue Man Group exhibit, you can find it here.
