Alcoa open house tonight (Friday)
Before you rush out for dinner and movie tonight, you may want to make your way to St. Louis Park to see a 1957 Alcoa Care-free House. I toured the house a couple of days ago with architectural historian Charlene Roise, who is a big, big fan of mid-century modernism. You can listen to a 3-minute audio tour and see photos at MinnPost.

Hmmm...just so happens that the City
of Minneapolis's Heritage Preservation Awards have a new category for rescued "modern" structures...but they're only accepting nominations until 4/11.

So was it like life inside a pop can?
