The Top 5

“Sense of Place” Exhibition

In collaboration with the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine, eleven Groveland Gallery artists show off their best work derived from the natural world around us. From farm-fresh landscapes to the Boundary Waters and blackbirds to Bambi’s, this nature- and Minnesota-inspired exhibition reminds you exactly why you fell in love with Minnesota in the first place. Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. @ Groveland Gallery, 25 Groveland Terrace, Minneapolis, grovelandgallery.com

Miracle at Lawless

That’s right—you’ve made it through the stress of another holiday season! To celebrate, unwind at Lawless Distilling Company’s Miracle at Lawless—a Christmas-inspired pop-up bar that serves festive cocktails amongst an extensive collection of holiday-themed décor. Feeling up for something new? Try the Snowball Old Fashioned or Christmas Carol Barrel. Wednesday through Thursday, 4-10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 4 p.m. to midnight, and Sunday 4-10 p.m. @ Lawless Distilling Co., 2619 28th Ave. S., Minneapolis, lawlessdistillingcompany.com

Les Miserables

Your chances to see the world-renowned, Tony Award-winning musical Les Miserables at the Orpheum Theatre are dwindling fast—especially when you consider the rate tickets are flying out of the box office. Grab a pair, hit the town, and treat yourself to a well-deserved night out. Wednesday through Sunday, various times @ Orpheum Theatre, 910 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis, hennepintheatretrust.org

The Little Red Holiday House

Glowing with festive lights and holiday décor, shop around this 1855 two-story farmhouse packed with furniture and home décor from local vendors and artists that specialize in re-finished, re-purposed, and re-envisioned goods. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ 3192 St. Croix Trail S., Afton, facebook.com

Pinot’s Palette

Wine and canvas classes are all the rage lately, and it’s easy to understand why. They’re fun (really fun) and a great way to spend quality time with friends and family while letting your creative side run wild and free. This week, Pinot’s Palette teaches you how to paint  “Sapphire State”—a blue silhouette of a Minnesota landscape. Sunday, 6-8 p.m. @ 4712 Excelsior Blvd., St. Louis Park, pinotspalette.com
