[Minneapolis Skyline / CC:


If your fascination with endlessly circling Minnesota's 10,000 lakes as your main source of summer fun is waning, it's time for a change. Here are some ideas to spice up the next week or two. Sure, make the obligatory rounds of the State Fair, get your fill of deep fried foods, stop in for a show at the Guthrie or Ordway...then do something taking a welding class. Picture muscles, sweat, flying sparks and a delicious glass of wine. Perfect for a night out with the girls? You be the judge.

WeldingClassWineDealFor the pyros and metal-bending craftsman in all of us, this is a class worth checking out. Not to mention that even when the sparks are flying and the tungsten and steel are binding, wine sounds like a good idea, so it's included in the class package. Plus, you take home a beautiful sculpture at the end. Can anyone say bachelorette partay?!
