Admire Architecture in Minneapolis


5. An Oddball Day

On Saturday afternoons from October 14 to November 4, line up for rush tickets to Garrison Keillor's live weekly radio show "A Prairie Home Companion." Beginning at 4:15, tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so arrive at the Fitzgerald Theater between noon and 2 p.m. Forget the Robert Altman movie; you'll laugh at Keillor's monologue and tap along to old-timey music with four million listeners.
