A eulogy for an incredible bar:
Last night, while waiting for #againstme ! to go on at the #stonepony , I was talking to my pal Brian from the great @night___birds, and the conversation turned, as it often will, to our shared loved of #minneapolis in general, and the lunatics of #dillingerfour specifically. I very fondly recounted to Brian a story of my first time at the @triplerockmpls, and how @billytcpm had me in stitches telling me the story of a completely bonkers fistfight that had occurred outside. Between that and the giant sandwich I ate (mock duck po'boy!), I fell in love with this place instantly.
Years later, thanks to our lovely friends @bdrejesse and @sweetanitasparrows, #nervoustriggers had the honor of playing on that stage I had so revered for so long, at the epic, @davestrait themed weekender #onelastparty . It is safe to day that was a watershed show for us. The crowd at the T-Rock gave Nervous Triggers a reception like we had never seen before, and rarely have since! It was the first time we ever got a circle pit going, and that filled my heart with indescribable joy. We shared the stage with many old friends, and we also made many new ones, most notably meeting and instantly befriending our best pals from the west coast, @badcopbadcop. To date, it is the furthest from home this band has played, and yet we felt right at home! That's the magic of #mpls , and so much of that magic was readily apparent anytime you walked through the doors of the #triplerocksocialclub . Its impending closing can't help but remind me of the closing of our own @asburylanes, leaving a void that will be difficult to fill. I wish Erik and Gretchen all the best in whatever they do next, and thank all the T-Rock staff past and present for all the memories, even the ones that barely exist!
I'm really going to miss that place, and Nervous Triggers will forever be grateful to the spot and our friends who allowed us to have been a small blip in the history of this legendary punk venue.

It’s no secret that arm balances and inversions are my biggest tool into the empowering affects of my yoga practice. In learning them you are forced to be present, and as you journey with them you often journey with fear and over powering that fear to badassery 💫. Join me at @thefirmmpls Saturday October 28th for Arm Balances and Inversions: The Workshop from 11AM-12:30PM. In this workshop we’ll go through core strengtheners, drills, and exercises you can do everyday to strengthen your practice, as well as break down the set up for different postures. Paired with a purchase of Inversions Training: The Class on 12/3 and you get 10% off! #minneapolis I’ll see you there! Click the link in my profile to sign up. 💖
Hung a pair of boob hooks from @thingindustries last night. Conversations included “How far apart should the boobs be?” “Do you want the left or right boob?” and “Will the boobs in the bathroom offend our guests?” All great discussions. 🍈🍈
The highly anticipated new album from @missmargoprice, All American Made, is in stores this Friday! We will have a small number of Margo Price totes bags, 8x10 glossy photos and stickers for free gifts with purchase, while supplies last!
Fall has always been my favorite season. When I was a little girl my church would throw a Harvest Party at this cozy cabin in the woods of Missouri (owned by somebody who went to the church). We would have hayrides, a bonfire, we bobbed for apples, and had amazing food. I’ll never forget these parties but I will also never forget the smell of the cabin. All of that amazing food, a fire burning in the fireplace, and apple cider. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and relive those Harvest Parties. 🍁🍎🍂 (📷 by my husband)
One of my favorite conversations this year came from Jane Goodall who has given me a deeper respect for the earth, humanity and myself. No matter where you stand I think you can appreciate the work of this amazing human.
The world told her to “Dream about something you can achieve”, her mother told her “If you really want to do something you’ve got to work very hard, take advantage of opportunity and never give up.”
