(Anti) Wrecking Ball
Minnesota's history is anchored by the many rare structures that exist throughout the state. The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota is billed with protecting those buildings, and thus the rich heritage of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. To celebrate the announcement of this year's 10 Most Endangered Historic Places List, the organization is throwing a bash with live entertainment, drinks, and food. The event, held at the Soap Factory, will feature the musical stylings of Ezra and the Pounders, as well as DJ Jake Rudh. An art raffle, prizes, and a behind-the-scenes tour of the Soap Factory—an unusual location itself—will highlight the buildings that have seen the landscape change throughout generations. Food and drinks will be available via the Magic Bus Café, Cake Eater Bakery, and several local breweries. Attendees will also have the chance to vote for which of the 10 Most Endangered Historic Properties should receive a $2,500 grant. In the spirit of Minnesota's rich history, the (Anti) Wrecking Ball will be a night to party for a good cause. Visit www.mnpreservation.org for info.
