“The Honor of Your Company Is Requested: President Lincoln’s Inaugural Ball” Exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Lincoln’s second inaugural ball was held in the building that now houses the museum. Cool. What? We’re American history dorks.
Anyone who knows anything about State Fairs (and I like to think I can count myself in that category) knows that no one takes them more seriously than the Lake States. In fact, depending how early in the morning I can get up, and how fast I can drive across Iowa, I should hopefully make it in time to live-blog the last day of Minnesota’s legendary fair. But if you can’t wait to virtually eat cheese curds with me, then get in line and get your own at Minnesota’s strongest competitor, Wisconsin. If you can’t decide what day to get out there, I would recommend Thursday, because I’m honestly considering buying a plane ticket just so I don’t have to miss this.
Go to the BMW Museum and check out the temporary exhibit on the BMW concept cars. There are seven. All concept cars. So hot.
