Good weather...that's what.

But, since there are all of these things happening, let's at least take advantage of what we can.

Here is more information on those events:


This is put on by the Stearns History Museum.  Happening on March 9th at 5:30 at Beaver Island Brewing, downtown St. Cloud.  Cost is just $10 per person. If you are a member of the History Museum, the cost is free.

This one looks super fun.  You go around to the participating downtown St. Cloud bars, try their Bloody Mary drinks and vote on which one you think is best.  This is happening on Sunday, March 26th from 11 to 3pm.  You can get the info here, including which bars are participating and what the criteria is to vote on for the best Bloody Mary.  
There are a few of these going on this month. Back Shed's party is actually ON St. Patrick's Day - the 17th. The other two are the next day, Saturday the 18th.
Whether you participate in all of these, or just a few.  At least there are things going on this month that look fun, and will get you out of the house.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
