Europe Day will get a bash across the pond when the American Swedish Institute opens its historic doors, and its ample urban lawns, to a transcontinental celebration. DJ Jake Rudh and Still Pacific will provide the music, while FIKA, Får North Spirits, and Indeed Brewing will keep revelers in food and drink. Inside the iconic Turnblad Mansion and the institute's stunning modern addition is the astounding exhibition "Papercut! The Incredible Psaligraphy of Karen Bit Vejle," along with opportunities to try one's hand at paper art with help from the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Ping pong, performances by Minnesota Dance Theatre, and Germanic drinking games are also on tap. 21+.
Fri., May 9, 7-11 p.m., 2014
