The Rolling Stones are set to play TCF Stadium tomorrow night. Before they hit the stage for some rock 'n' roll, Mick Jagger decided to enjoy some arts and culture around the North Loop in the Warehouse District of Minneapolis, stopping into James & Mary Laurie, Booksellers (A.B.A.A.) to do some shopping.

The bookshop, located at 250 North Third Avenue, specializes in rare, vintage, and collectible books. They also carry art prints, and vinyl featuring classical and jazz artists. James Laurie, shown posing in the posted image, recounts his moment with Jagger:

He sings "Its only rock n roll but I like it" but Mick Jagger is not just a singer as evidenced by his knowledge & interest in art, architecture, literature & music during his visit to our bookshop on Tuesday. He is also very generous with his friends. It was a pleasure having him in the shop. As he left he said "think dry" since rain is forecast for his concert on Wednesday evening.
No word yet on what he purchased, if anything. Other reported sightings have included stops to dine at Bar Lurcat and Bar La Grassa.
