Friday: National Donut Day 

Sometimes made-up holidays are just a silly excuse to post on Instagram. But when Glam Doll Donuts offers free donuts and new flavors, you might as well celebrate. The first 100 customers at its Northeast location will get a free donut, and both locations (Northeast and Nicollet Avenue) will be sharing new flavors all day long. 

Where: Glam Doll Donuts Minneapolis locations

When: 7 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.

Cost: Depends on the donut

Saturday: Lake Street Dumpling Tour

Saturday is the perfect opportunity to try them all thanks to a collaboration between the Lake Street Council, Lake Street Mpls and Metro Transit. For $5 you’ll get two free dumpling samples with the option to buy more a la carte throughout the day.

When: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

How much: $5, plus the cost of any extra dumplings

Sunday: Urban Growler Farmers Market Opening Day Party

A farmers market at a brewery? It doesn’t get more Minneapolis than that. Sunday is the grand opening of Urban Growler’s new farmers market that will feature fresh produce, handmade food and goods, live music and a beer garden. 

Where: Urban Growler Brewery, 2325 Endicott St., St. Paul

Culture to consume:

Watch this: Vine compilations

It almost doesn’t need to be said, but we’ll say it. VINE COMPILATIONS VINE COMPILATIONS VINE COMPILATIONS! Whether you are on cloud nine, six feet under or somewhere in between — these six-second cinematic experiences rarely disappoint.

Listen to this: “2000s Smash Hits”

Filtr’s Spotify’s playlist “2000s Smash Hits” has aged like a fine wine. This lineup will rejuvenate your soul, remind you of simpler times and maybe even leave you wanting to break out your Tamagotchi.

Do this: Get outside

It doesn’t matter whether you lay out a towel, get on a bike or whip out your ENO — please just get some much-needed Vitamin D. While the humidity may not be ideal, neither was a snowstorm in April. At least this time you might get a tan!
