This week in free stuff to do we have a boozy art party, a vintage and vinyl shopping event, and a latte art throwdown that also offers beer. Come take a look and plan your week.
Get into the Halloween spirit with Norseman Distillery's feature artist for October: Caitlin Karolczak. Her haunting portraits look both ancient and modern, with naked forms, glowing halows, and the occasional bone. See her work up close this Tuesday while enjoying cocktails. 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Norseman Distillery, 451 Taft St. NE, Unit 19, Minneapolis; 612-568-5299.
Tattersall Vintage Clothing & Record Sale
For those who aren’t a fan of malls, being able to buy cool stuff without trekking to one is a good thing. Shopping at a distillery? Even better. This Thursday, Tattersall in northeast Minneapolis invites guests to drink and browse at its unique happy hour. Sip on delicious cocktails while sifting through Soft Abuse’s vinyl stacks. Or check out the vintage threads from the collections of Double Peace Studio, Rosebud Was the Sled, and Invisible Ceremony. 4 to 9 p.m. Thursday. Tattersall Distilling, 1620 Central Ave. NE, Ste 150, Minneapolis; 612-584-4152.
