A family affair
Today's your last day to catch All in the Family, an exhibit of photographs of different families over the years that invites you to examine your own expectations of the relationships within these pictures.

River skating may be closed at the Forks now, but that doesn't mean a trip to this historical site is out of the question till summer. Spend the day inside and visit Tall Grass Prairie Bread Co. & Deli for a coffee and cinnamon bun while catching up with friends. Tall Grass Prairie has all kinds of delicacies and delights, and experiments with different flours such as spelt and brown and white rice. They even have vegan offerings, so everyone can enjoy a treat. However, you may need to be rolled out on a wheelbarrow afterwards.
