    Ask Mrs. Pederson – Dear Hopeful

    Dear Mrs. P, I am a HIV-negative gay middle-aged man who has yet to be successful in love.

    Two Great Shows

    Muffins: We are never at a loss for great entertainment in Minneapolis!  This weekend my top two picks go to low budget options.  Both Box Wine Theater’s production of Tom and Kelly Adopt and Asian Baby and Durang Durang starring Julie Dafydd as Sister Mary Ignatius are well worth venturing out for.
