Each Breakfast With a Preservation event features a presentation or a moderated discussion about a specific topic. Past sessions have included a presentation on historic preservation in Cuba, an audience-participation conversation about the best Modern buildings in Minneapolis, and a panel discussion about Riverside Plaza (Cedar Square West).
Preserve Minneapolis hosts Breakfast With a Preservationist every other month (with Happy Hour With a Preservationists taking place in the alternate months). All events are free and open to the public; they are typically held from 8am to 9 am in the ADM Conference Room at the Mill City Museum. And, yes, there is breakfast: pastries and coffee are available, though we do ask for a donation to help cover the costs.
What’s your favorite place to show out of town visitors?
That’s the topic of next week’s Breakfast With a Preservationist (event below), and we need your help! We (REALLY, REALLY) need more photos and suggestions, so please send them to Doug Mack at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday (12/2) at noon.
When you’re showing off the city, what do you show? A particular building? A favorite street? It doesn’t have to be officially historic, just something that embodies this fine city’s culture/history/spirit/general excellence.
Please send us your suggestion, including a brief paragraph. If you have a photograph, that would also be very helpful for the presentation (and if you don’t, we’ll try to take one or dig one up).
When: Wednesday, December 4th, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
Where: Mill City Museum, 710 2nd Street South ADM Room, 6th Floor
Cost: This event is FREE!
We hope to see you there! You’ll also have the chance to speak about your favorite place during the event. Or just come and listen and enjoy all the great ideas for the next time you have your own out-of-town visitors.
Stay tuned for information on our February 2014 BWAP.
