Minnesota!

Racking up another notch on my list of "States I Have Visited." I'm heading off to the Twin Cities soon for an exciting weekend at the Young People's Singing. And then the singing the day after in a place called . . . wait for it . . . Dinkytown! Yes! Apparently there is a neighborhood in Minneapolis called "Dinkytown."

I kind of want to get a job at UMN now, just so I can live in "Dinkytown."

Awesome! I lived in a town called Nonesuch once. I thought it was fun.

Have a great time. Are you singing or spectating?

Singing! There's no spectating in Sacred Harp.

The Young People's Singing is so named because all of the officers are under thirty. But everyone comes to sing.

I think you'll like Dinkytown :) I never lived there in school, I chose a neighborhood more toward the medical campus, but Dinkytown has that college feel to it!

I did like Dinkytown! On the other hand, having stayed with a singer in St. Paul, I now cannot decide whether I'd rather live in Dinkytown or on Cretin Avenue.

Not sure if I laid eyes on Dinkytown when my husband and I visited Minneapolis, but we really enjoyed the city and D.town sounds like a lively part of it.

All I got to see of the Twin Cities were the bits between my hostess's house, the two singing locations, and the house where the social was, but from what I could see, it looks like a really nice area, and the kind of place I'd like to live.
