Our little town has some big BIG fun during the rest of January and into February. Check out these events.

Say hello to Date Night in Blaine!

Remember date nights? They become even more important to your relationships with the addition of kids. Scheduling time alone is usually challenging, but not if you live in Blaine. Victory Links has come to the rescue by offering Parent’s Night Out every Friday night, starting this Friday, the 22nd.

Drop off your budding Tiger Woods or Annika Sörenstam to receive instruction, practice his or her golf game and have some fun with other activities. This program happens every Friday night and it’s for kids age 8 and older. It’s is a bit pricey, however, at $44 a session. Hours are 5:30 p.m. until 10

Although the holidays are consuming most of our attention we still have at least one ear out for the latest news from around Blaine. Read on to find out what’s happening.

Craft breweries in Blaine?

Hey who knows? This could turn into a cottage industry for our city. According to ABC Newspapers’ staff writer Eric Hagen, a group of investors got the city council’s nod to build a craft brewery with an attached taproom adjacent to the NSC. Maybe we should call it “half a nod,” since it’s not a done deal yet.

The group plans on using most of the 7,500-square-foot facility to craft their beers to sell to other businesses but there will be space set aside for a taproom and restaurant that seats up to 250 customers. Oh, and an outdoor patio too! We

There has been lots of fun news from Blaine and around the Twin Cities in the past couple of weeks. Since it’s Monday, and I think we can all use some fun to counteract that fact, let’s dive in.

Santa’s flight crew lives in St. Paul

We’ll bet you didn’t know that, but it’s true, at least according to Animal Planet. They have the video to prove it (and some pretty annoying ads as well). It’s the live reindeer cam feed direct from the Como Zoo in St. Paul. Unless they’re scratching their antlers against a tree they really aren’t all that exciting to watch but the kids might get a kick out of it.

Santa occasionally sneaks in to feed the crew and go over their flight itinerary so you and the kids can check out those live-feed visits on December

Sure, we’re halfway through November, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use a few ideas for where to go for fun throughout the rest of the month. We’re ramping up the holidays season so many events coming up this month are holiday-themed, but not all.

Team Lindahl is proudly committed to supporting the communities we serve through our MAKING A DIFFERENCE program. Although we typically like to salute our local Blaine and Lino Lakes charities, November 11 is Veteran’s Day so we have chosen a group that gives tirelessly to veterans throughout the state.

With headquarters in Minneapolis, more than 25,000 veterans reach out to Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) every year and more than 1,000 become clients. About 70 percent of the veterans helped are disabled.

The group’s stated mission is “To provide assistance throughout Minnesota to positively motivated veterans and their families who are homeless or experiencing other life crises.” They accomplish this by providing information,

 haunted houses in the twin cities

While Team Lindahl certainly wouldn’t be opposed to selling a haunted house, we think that, at least at this time of year, it’s more fun to visit them. But our haunted attractions aren’t just houses, but cornfields, basements and more.

We can’t list all of them here, but we’ve chosen some of our favorites to share with you this Halloween.

From one big box to another

Walmart moved out of the Village of Blaine for their new, larger store and now we find out at At Home, another big-box store (this one featuring home décor and furnishings) will be moving in. First, though, architects will be drawing up plans for a remodeling project for the 105,000 square-foot store set to open next summer.

MnPASS in Blaine

So, is Blaine going to get a MnPASS lane? Minnesota’s Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is looking into the possibility of installing the lane from Highway 36 in Roseville to our very own Lexington Avenue.

Yes, we do have enough road work going on right now to last a lifetime but this
