A note from the president

As snow continues to fall, shattering all-time records and to the mixed delight and annoyance of Saint Paulites, you may find yourself wondering how best to spend your time this weekend.

If you're one to pull out the snow pants and dive head first into this snowy abyss, I'd suggest planning to be at McMurray fields this Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m.. Our very own Mayor and City Council members challenged their Minneapolis counterparts to snowball fight , and they want your help!

But if staying in this weekend sounds more your speed the Science Museum just kicked off their newest exhibit Game Changers . The exhibit has more than 100 playable games, including some of my favorite arcade classics. Best of all, you can leave your quarters at home, because all game play is token-free.

See you all around (down)town,
