THE Murder and Mayhem TOUR

Do you ever think that you would have liked to live back in the “good old days?” Think again. Murders, suicides, rail yard accidents, mill explosions, car wrecks and drownings were pretty much the order of the day. On our (occasionally irreverent) tour, you’ll hear about some of the highlights of Minneapolis’ history and be introduced to some of the city’s more outrageous low-lifes. We’ll visit the graves of Harry Hayward, mastermind of Minneapolis’ crime of the 19th century, and the victims of the Macedonian Murders, the city’s worst mass murder. And that’s just for starters. This tour is co-sponsored by Friends of the Cemetery and the Hennepin History Museum. Suggested donation is $5.

What Would Your “Last Meal” on Earth Be?
Last Meal: What would be your last meal on earth and who would be your dining companions? Have a fun conversation with these questions as your starting point. The Last Meal celebration will feature gourmet sandwiches and desserts from The Salty Tart, a bakery owned and operated by nationally-acclaimed pastry chef, Michelle Gayer. The Salty Tart’s sandwiches and pastries have received rave revues – come see why she was nominated for a James Beard award and why she received four out of four stars from the Star Tribune. In addition to these tasty morsels, the meal will include locally-based salads and Ms. Kelly’s teas. The cost of the lunch is $10.
