One year ago this Wednesday, Gigi Berry officially made her hobby an “actual thing.” The hobby? Pin collecting. The actual thing that came out of it? Cherry Moon Press — a local Prince-themed enamel pin company.
It’s the summer of 1980, and you’re in the crowd at Wimbledon. Do you remember the cheers? Björn Borg’s luscious locks and John McEnroe’s ferocity? Do you remember who won? Of course you don’t. Nor will many of the people who see “Borg vs. McEnroe,” which had its wide release in the U.S. on Friday.
Joan Didion once wrote, “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” Paper Darts, a literary magazine founded in Minneapolis, took this idea a step further — they added art.

It was around 1 p.m. on Friday afternoon — the day of TEDxUMN: A Tale of Twin Cities. The stage was set, the goodie bag filling process was underway and University of Minnesota School of Nursing associate professor Cheryl Robertson was set to appear on stage in about five hours. As all promotional materials declare, TEDxUMN is an independently organized TED event taking place on the U of M campus; the recent event took place at the McNamara Alumni Center. The format is the same as the talks and conferences you’ve seen online, but the organizers are different.
The Coven, a co-working space for women and non-binary individuals in the North Loop, officially opened March 8 (that’s International Women’s Day, mind you).

Based on the plot of a 1990s video/computer game (and its many reboots), “Tomb Raider” doesn’t go all “Riverdale” in its hints at good old consumer culture and character building. Croft is introduced in a boxing arena, stealing the owner’s apple before hopping on a food delivery bike, charming everyone she meets.
When she was an undergrad, a classmate told Meghan Murphy her work reminded him of middle school. She’d painted a bunch of Tim Burton-esque dolls floating in yellow and wearing lingerie — a study in tragedy and empowerment that come with being aware of sexuality at a young age. But the classmate just saw trivial little girl art.
