What non-North Star State denizens usually don't know: Despite our icy winters, our summer temps tend to lean toward broiling. What you'll be happy to know: This Adventure will help keep that heat at bay, while keeping our stomaches and taste buds sated. Join us for an evening river kayaking trip followed by an antipasti spread and a glass of wine.
We'll gather at Above the Falls Sports in Minneapolis, where our team of waterway wayfarers will be on hand to check us in and escort us through the historic North Loop District down to the river's edge. There, we'll meet our team of kayaking mavens who will distribute safety equipment and some knowledge on what to expect before we all jump in and begin our twilight journey down the Mississippi.
We'll board our tandem kayaks, submerge our paddles into the water and head north along Harriet Island, Boom Island, and beyond, all the while taking in the downtown view of the setting sun over the city.
After two hours of being one with (and against) the currents, we'll clean up back at Above the Falls Sports (if desired) and walk over to Toast Wine Bar & Café, also located in the North Loop neighborhood. Look forward to antipasti platters with cured meats, olives, cheeses, fruit, almonds, and vegetables. And to wash it all down: a glass of select wine, which will also double as an elixer for those tired post-paddle limbs. Forget about those tundra jokes—this is one Adventure that will prove to our southern brethren you don't need to live down there to enjoy a lovely summer's eve.
