Belly Dance Class

It may not ease tensions in the Middle East, but a belly dancing class from the Jawaahir Dance Company’s Cassandra School is a guaranteed stress reliever. To enhance your global perspective, try a Tribal Fusion class with Mistress Tara. Three metro locations, 612-872-6050


Tree house

Yep, there’s a sprawling, slightly surreal, multilevel tree house in St. Louis Park. Check it out on Minnetonka Boulevard just east of Highway 100.


House of Balls

Bowling balls and other ordinary objects become something else entirely at sculptor Allen Christian’s mind-bending House of Balls gallery. 212 3rd Ave. N., Mpls., 612-332-3992


Ice Chamber Bar

Floridians don’t get it, but when winter comes to the Twin Cities, it’s time to head outside—specifically to Le Méridien Chambers, where the bar is carved from 12,000 pounds of super-clear ice. 901 Hennepin Ave., Mpls., 612-767-6900


The Raptor Center

Have you ever seen a bald eagle close up? Of course not—unless you’ve been to the Raptor Center, in which case you’ve probably been closer to one than you ever thought was possible. And be honest: It was a little scary, wasn’t it? 1920 Fitch Ave.,St. Paul, 612-624-4745
