Lazor on 'hip' architecture
The last time I was at the Turf Club, I wore what I thought was a hip, old school fedora. After sucking back a beer, I went to the bathroom. And there was a much younger guy, also with a hip, old school fedora. Hmmm.

I'll have a chance to repeat that experience on April 22 when architect Charlie Lazor offers up an overview of mid-century modernism at the Turf Club, lcoated near the corner of Snelling and University Avenues in St. Paul. Called History of Hip: Design, the event is sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society and costs $6 (or $5 if you're a member). It's part of their History of Hip series, which also includes an upcoming talk on jazz, also scheduled for the Turf Club. There will be an open bar at both events.
