 2. Coffee Sketch at Bruegger's Bagels,  South Minneapolis

When: Monday, May 13th, 10am-noon

Where: 4554 Nicollet Ave. South, Minneapolis

This Bruegger’s is known as Station 27 as it is housed in a former fire station. It is a pretty brick structure with lovely tall windows. There are firefighting items of interest on the wall as well as the large display case of bagels. They have a small parking lot and on-street parking. All sketching mediums are welcome. They open at 6:00 a.m. if you want to arrive early. I may be out of town that day and trust one of the regulars will help greet newcomers and handle the throw-down and photograph. If it’s a nice day, bring a stool and sketch outdoors! ~Lori Tolonen
