This week: bikes, warblers and a luncheon


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Just as the return of the robin signals spring, so the departure of free parking in Canal Park signals tourist season. So, that’s happening.

And, on the subject of birds, Jan and Larry Kraemer and the Audubon Society are hosting a series of early morning warbler walks on Park Point on Tuesdays and Thursdays in May.

Nerd Nite is back on Wednesday at the Teatro Zuccone with presentations on Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, jumping into Lake Superior every month and time travel in the 1980s.

There is a Bike Rodeo on Thursday at the Myers-Wilkins Elementary School with bike inspections and safety training, just in time for Bike to Work Day on Friday with tune up stations at Minnesota Power Plaza, the Mayor’s Bike Ride starting at City Hall and the Mayor’s Luncheon at Clyde Iron.

By the way, what’s the difference between a “lunch” and a “luncheon?” Is it just a lunch with extra syllables so you’ll pay more?

Bob Dylan gets saluted at Sacred Heart on Saturday as a benefit for the Armory.

Zinema 2 screens Roberto Rosselini’s The Flowers of St. Francis on Sunday with a real live Franciscan friar to do a Q&A afterwards.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.

What, you mean I wasn't supposed to be putting quarters in the meters in Canal Park all winter?
