What: A tour of places in Minneapolis with taxidermy on the wall
Where: Start at the alley behind One on One Bike Shop
When: Friday October 16th at 6:30 until done
Why: Why not?
How: By bicycle, at a leisurely pace
When it comes to kitschy decor bespeaking "authenticity" real or imagined, there's nothing like some taxidermy.
So hunting is a thing. If you're going to do it, at least you can put some thought into displaying the animal.
I'm doing a little research, poking around, talking to taxidermically endowed proprietors, talking to folks at the Bell Museum (the regional epicenter of the taxidermic arts), and am going to share with you some of the range of taxidermy that can be found in the cozy confines of Minneapolis.
The trip should be about 6 miles by bicycle, beginning in the alley and ending at the third stop. All stops are bars or taprooms, and we will be spending about a half hour at each place admiring the variety of stuffed and mounted fauna in our local alcoholic ecosystem. You're welcome to come for all or part.
